April 22, 2020 will mark 50 years of Earth Day.
“I turned my face more exclusively than ever to the woods, where I was better known.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Earth Day is 50 years Strong.
Today, April 22, 2020, the world celebrate Earth Day. This year’s theme is climate action, a challenge that requires all of our participation. The future of humanity, of every living thing on this planet and the life-support systems that make our world habitable is at risk.
Fifty years ago in 1970, the first Earth Day was the catalyst that generated positive action. We need to continue the momentum.
I am commemorating Earth Day with Henry David Thoreau. Please join me as I “go to the woods because I wish to live deliberately”
“22 April is Earth Day. While the coronavirus (COVID-19) has been spreading around the world and dominating news headlines, thoughts and attention, the need to take climate action has remained as urgent as ever. UN Environment Programme
“April 22 is a timely reminder to embrace the opportunities of the natural world for green jobs, sustainable economic stimulus, for urgently taking action to protect ourselves against unsurvivable global heating and for securing healthy, dignified futures.” UN Environment Programme
