About Earth Day 2021 Celebrations

What is Earth Day?

Earth Day marks the birth of the modern environmental movement. On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans (10% of the total population of the United States) took to their streets, parks and auditoriums to call for a healthier, more sustainable treatment of the environment. 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 throughout the United States.

'Restore Our Earth' 2021 Theme

Since 1990, Earth Day has since been celebrated across the globe, with 2021 marking the 51st anniversary of its mission to drive ‘transformative change for people and the planet’. This year's theme, Restore Our Earth, reminds us that as we return to normal, we can't go back to business-as-usual.
