Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22 and on this occasion an alarm is sounded regarding the protection of the environment. This day was founded in order to arouse the interest of the political class towards the environment.

Earth Day was founded by US Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970, with the aim of drawing the attention of the political class to the disinterest he showed in the environment. For the first time, this moment was marked by anti-pollution demonstrations throughout the United States, attended by about 20 million Americans. As a result of these demonstrations, US Senator Gaylord Nelson has managed to convince politicians of the need to adopt appropriate legislation for the protection of the environment: the law of fresh air, the control of toxic substances, water quality, etc.

From 1970 until today, every year, April 22 has been celebrated as Earth Day and events are organized to bring to people’s attention the need to protect the environment.

Earth day 2020 is not just the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Also on this day in 2016, the Paris Agreement was signed to take measures to reduce and adapt to climate change. The theme for Earth Day 2020 is climate action. The enormous challenge – but also the vast opportunities — of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary.

It is necessary both on this day and every day to change the actions we take to change our lives and protect the environment.

Even during this time during the exceptional situation due to coronavirus, we must meditate and plan our actions so that it does not have a negative impact on the Earth.

On behalf of the Platform of the National Engagement Strategy in solving the land related problems, we urge all stakeholders, including central, district, local public administration, economic agents, scientific research institutions, universities, colleges, lyceums, gymnasiums, non-governmental organizations to plan and after this period (in which we are obliged to stay at home), carry out environmentally friendly sustainable actions, so that we not only exploit the Earth, but also take care of it.
