The theme of Earth Day 2021 is: Restore Our Earth. The Earth day theme ”focuses on natural processes and emerging green technologies that can restore the world’s ecosystems. In this way, the theme rejects the notion that mitigation or adaptation are the only way to address climate change.”
Earth Day gains significance with each passing year as the global climate crisis worsens. Earth Day brings millions of peopple together as it gives an opportunity for all stakeholders to create awareness and work together on critical issues like global warming, pollution and the vanishing forest cover among others.
This year, the earthday.org calls on everyone to “be apart of the change”. In 1990, Earth Day became an ”environmental movement, working with more than 75,000 partners in over 192 countries to drive positive action for our planet”.
