The World Earth Day

Earth Day is a festival specially set up for the world's environmental protection. It aims to raise the public's awareness of existing environmental problems, and mobilize the public to participate in the environmental protection movement to improve the overall environment of the earth through a green and low-carbon life. Earth Day was launched in 1970 by Gaylord Nelson and Dennis Hayes. Today, the celebration of Earth Day has grown to 192 countries around the world, with more than 1 billion people participating each year, making it the largest folk environmental festival in the world. Zhou Jinfeng, vice-chairman and secretary-general of China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation, said: "This event can be said to be the beginning of modern environmental protection activities. It has promoted Western countries to pay attention to environmental pollution and damage, and is of milestone significance. At the same time, the event also played a positive role in promoting the convening of the first United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in 1972, making mankind fully aware of the important connotation of 'there is only one earth'."

China has held Earth Day on April 22 every year since the 1990s. On April 22, 1970, the United States held the first Earth Day event, which was the first large-scale mass environmental protection event in human history.

April 22, 2021 is the 52nd Earth Day.
