    Significance of Earth Day

    Earth Day is an event observed annually on April 22. It is a day held to demonstrate and promote environmental awareness and calls for the protection of our planet. Today, Earth Day is celebrated in more than 193 countries each year.

    History of Earth Day

    The history of Earth Day dates back to 1970 when it was first celebrated.  It was founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson to promote ecology and the respect for life on the planet as well as to encourage awareness of the growing problems of air, water and soil pollution. The first Earth Day celebrations took place in two thousand colleges and universities, roughly ten thousand primary and secondary schools, and hundreds of communities across the United States. 
     
    In 1990, Earth Day went global with the help of environmental leaders and Denis Hayes.  They mobilized 200 million people in 141 countries, lifting environmental issues onto the world stage.
