Thursday 22nd April 2021 marks the 51st Earth Day. This year, the main theme will be Restore Our Earth.
Climate change and other environmental catastrophes have inflicted serious harm upon ecosystems worldwide. What’s more, they can even be connected to issues such as poverty and the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the face of these tragedies, Restore Our Earth reminds us that it is within our power to heal the environment.
Exciting Online Events
To mark this momentous occasion, a number of exciting events have been planned. As a result of the global pandemic, Earth Day’s main events will take place online. You can get involved via the earthday.org website from the comfort of your own home.
Earth Day Live will commence at 12 PM Eastern Time. There will be a number of workshops, panel discussions, and performances all focusing on the central theme of Restore Our Earth. Some topics that will be addressed are:
- Climate restoration technologies
- Reforestation efforts
- Clean-ups, and much more
