Earth Day has now reached its 50th year, and according to the Earth Day Network and over one billion people in 192 countries are thought to have taken part in last year’s event. Just seeing the social media focus shows how important and how much we are becoming far more environmentally conscious than ever - great!
Celebrated every year on April 22, the global day of environmental action is thought to be the largest secular observance in the world.
While the coronavirus has been spreading around the world and dominating news headlines, thoughts and attention, the need to take climate action has thankfully remained as urgent as ever. The pandemic is a stark reminder of the vulnerability of humans and the planet in the face of global scale threats. Unchecked damage to our environment must be addressed.
Let's keep doing our bit. After all, little by little, a little becomes a lot.
