Earth Day 2022 Celebrations

What is Earth Day?

Earth Day marks the birth of the modern environmental movement. On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans mobilised to call for greater protections for our planet. Individual groups fighting against air and water pollution, fossil fuels, land clearing, soil erosion, the loss of biodiversity and the extinction of wildlife; all united on Earth Day around their shared common values. On this day in 1970, Earth Day achieved a rare political alignment with grassroots values which spear-headed policy change. Learn more about the history of Earth Day here

2022 Theme - 'Invest In Our Planet'

EARTHDAY.ORG, the global organizer of Earth Day, announced that the theme for Earth Day 2022 will be “Invest in Our Planet.” Earth Day 2022 is focused on accelerating solutions to combat our greatest threat, climate change, and to activate everyone – governments, citizens, and businesses – to do their part. Everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable.

Together, we must Invest In Our Planet. Because a green future is a prosperous future.

The Earth Day 2022 theme is focused on engaging the more than 1 billion people, governments, institutions, and businesses who participate in Earth Day to recognize our collective responsibility and to help accelerate the transition to an equitable, prosperous green economy for all. EARTHDAY.ORG’s campaign is focused on reframing the conversation, accelerating action, and bringing us together to understand that this is within our reach if we work together.
