Each year, 22nd April is celebrated as Earth Day. This is an annual event which is celebrated all over the world to demonstrate support for environment protection. Earth Day aims to encourage people across the world to be more environment friendly. We are now in the 46th year of a movement that continues to inspire, challenge ideas, ignite passion, and motivate people to action.
It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 193 countries each year. The movement gave voice to an emerging consciousness, channeling human energy toward environmental issues. And so it begins. Today. Right here and right now. The Day is more than just a single day. It’s bigger than attending a rally and taking a stand.
On this earth day 2016, the landmark Paris Agreement is scheduled to be signed by the United States, India and some 120 other countries. This signing satisfies a key requirement for the entry into force of the historic draft climate protection treaty adopted by consensus of the 195 nations present at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.
And if we talk about India, It is leading to significant progress in renewable energy, sustainable urban development, in mobilizing the youth, building environmental stewardship, increasing green cover and in fostering clean energy education amongst women in rural areas as well as in all the citizen of India.
