What is “Earth Day”?
Earth Day is an annual event marked around the globe on April 22 to show care and protect our environment.
When did Earth day start?
The idea of a global celebration of an “Earth Day” first introduced by the peace activist John McConnell at the 1969 UNESCO Conference on the environment. The first one to officially adopt this celebration day was the San Francisco Mayor Joseph Alioto on March 21, 1970. Since that date, it’s celebrated annually on April 22 in over 195 nations worldwide.
