The 22nd April is celebrated as the World Earth Day all over the world by more than 190 countries to increase the awareness among people about the environment safety as well as demonstrate the environmental protection measures.
This year the theme is “CLIMATE ACTION “
This is going to be a historic day as being celebrated for the 50th anniversary by the citizens of this planet.
It may be recalled that 1st Earth Day was celebrated on 22nd April 1970 by millions of Americans from all age groups and protested for environmental ignorance and demanded a new way forward for the Planet.Although it has been celebrated every year with a new theme but I feel for the first time every homo sapiens occupying the planet has felt that we have destroyed a lot many species and destroying every moment other species who too has equal right to occupy this earth.
No doubt climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of the humanity and the life support system.Unless all the countries of the world unite together we soon be heading where future generations may not see what we have seen till date . Are our policies reiterated from time to time at the United Nations platform for fulfilling the aspirations of the present population and maintaining Sustainable Development so that future generations too enjoy the same ,are in the right direction.
Immediate need of the hour before all the countries is to JOIN HANDS AND TO FIGHT AGAINST CORONAVIRUS and the Covid -19 disease which has already taken a toll of more than 1.7 lakh people in the world.
