Earth Day is held annually on April 22 in support for environmental protection. It was launched on April 22, 1970.“We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concept of climate change and inspired by environmental education to act in defence of the planet.”  EARTHDAY.ORG President Kathleen Rogers.
