Dag van de aarde

For more than 200 years, scientists have been observing, measuring, and analyzing information about our planet’s climate. Studies from the Antarctic, the Amazon, the Great Barrier Reef, and beyond show that the earth is in constant transition and that humans have an effect on what happens.

On April 22nd more than 192 countries will be celebrating Earth Day. Earth Day is a day to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network. Since 1970, Earth Day has been a seminal event, bringing environmentalists, community leaders, elected officials and ordinary citizens together to discuss ways to improve the world around us. This year, 2015, it is Earth Day’s 45th anniversary. All over the world it could be the most exciting year in environmental history.

In the United States of America, Earth day is well celebrated.  A star-spangled event featuring familiar faces such as Mary J. Blige, No Doubt, Usher, Fall Out Boy, and Train—to name a few—will be shouting and singing out the message that we need to take action on climate change, and we need to do it now.  Perhaps more importantly, the two important organizations in the US; Connect4Climate and Earth Day Network are hosting a roundtable discussion with local and national leaders and influencers backstage to bring forth new climate communication ideas and strategies to trigger action, especially among Millennials. This Earth Day, our leaders must commit to real strategies to solve the climate change crisis. We can’t afford to wait any longer. 

One way to celebrate Earth Day is to plant trees. This is a good way to involve the community and to spread the message of advocacy. Trees are necessary for humans. They give fruits, oxygen, cleanse the air, prevent soil erosion, and provide shelter to wildlife. Having shade near one’s home can help reduce energy consumption and keep the home cool during summer without the need to run an expensive air conditioning unit all day.
