International Mother Earth Day: 22 April 2024


When Mother Earth sends us a message

From extreme heat and rising sea levels to biodiversity loss and pollution, Mother Earth is in peril and making a clear call to action - a need to shift to a more sustainable economy that works for both people and the planet. This International Mother Earth Day, let’s mobilize for the planet and all the life it supports. There are steps every one of us can take to protect nature, tackle climate change, and promote harmony with the Earth. Speak up, log your actions, and help save our planet with the UN’s ActNow campaign!

The United Nations (UN) released the statement in recognition of International Mother Earth Day.

In the United States, the environmental movement catalyzed Earth Day in 1970. The UN General Assembly designated April 22 International Mother Earth Day in 2009. In any case the message is clear: this day is a call to action to restore harmony with nature and the Earth to restore our world.
