A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DAY:
The first Earth Day celebrations occurred on 21st March 1970 which was the first day of spring that year. The celebration of this day should be official & distinguished was a proposal by John McConnell who was a Newspaper publisher and proposed his idea at a UNESCO Conference on the Environment the year before. He also proposed that an awareness should be created amongst the minds of the people and the common man regards to the protection for the environment & other dedicated efforts to “Save the Earth”.
Hence, the following year the United Nations Secretary General at the time signed a proclamation written by McConnell that the UN would celebrate this day each year on the first day of spring.
Another environmental activist as well as a US Senator known as Gaylord Nelson organised an event on 22nd April 1970 to show other politicians the wide support for environmental issues. This was a successful event and led to the Earth Day celebrations across thousands of colleges, universities, schools and communities that makes it the second earth day celebration.
Apart from the Earth’s day celebrations it’s our prime responsibility to take good care of our planet on an everyday basis. Plant trees and take care of the environment around us as good ‘citizens of the earth’. Earth day is also a reminder to what needs to be done for the sake of environmental sustainability & saving energy. Take Good Care of Your Planet & be part of the campaign, ‘SAVE THE PLANET.’
