Earthday Celebration April 2017
On April 22, 1970, 20 million people gathered in the streets of America to protest the impact the industrial revolution was having on the environment. An environmental movement, known as Earthday, was born as a result. Today, Mother Earth is honored on April 22 around the world in 170 countries.
This year the international theme for Earthday is Environmental & Climate Literacy.
Stewardship of our Earth
Let’s face it, we have screwed up our environment.
Our actions have depleted our soils, destroyed our forests, polluted our water and air, endangered species, and brought on a climate change that is threatening our survival.
This month, as we celebrate Earthday, we can find hope for the future. While we are still debating global warming and trying to come up with solutions, these kids are taking action. We salute and support these young visionaries, the future Stewards of our Earth.
