Earth Day, celebrated every April 22, is the most significant day of the year because people from all nations, backgrounds, colours and religions celebrate their similarities : living on Earth.

Earth Day was first launched in 1970, in the USA, and was the birth of the ecological movement. In 2020, Earth Day celebrates its 50th anniversary.

Some people plant trees, others clean rivers or the beach, others take a pledge not to pollute so much.

Earth Day is a time to unite around new actions. Earth day and every day is a time to act to protect our planet.

At home and at work : save energy, use less water, reduce, reuse, recycle, take public transport, etc.
