It was only a month ago that we were harping on about World Earth Day and now it’s World Environment Day so which came first, the earth or the environment? Well, we wouldn’t be here without either so let’s not chicken and egg this situation. The first World Earth Day was in 1970 just beating the UN’s World Environment Day to the punch which was launched in 1972, with the first global celebration taking place in 1974. It was a good decade for environmentalism but why do we celebrate these types of international days in the first place?
Earth Day is our chance to shout louder than we’ve done before (whilst continuing to bore the tits off our family and friends every other day). Starting tomorrow, we can all take part in 3 Days of Climate Action.
