Earth day 2022: Directive
“This is the moment to change it all — the business climate, the political climate, and how we take action on climate. Now is the time for the unstoppable courage to preserve and protect our health, our families, and our livelihoods.
For Earth Day 2022, we need to act (boldly), innovate (broadly), and implement (equitably). It’s going to take all of us. All in. Businesses, governments, and citizens — everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable. A partnership for the planet.”- earth day message from earth.org, a global environmental think tank.
Earth day is not confined to one particular day. Earth day is every day. Earth should be celebrated every day. We should take a step every day to preserve our home, the Earth.
