World Earth Day 2022
Tags: Important Days
World Earth Day, also known as International Mother Earth Day, is observed every year on 22 April.
On this day countries around the world come together to create awareness about the need to protect the environment.
The day focuses on the global climate crisis which is getting worse with each passing day.
On this special day, we emphasise growing environmental problems, including overpopulation, ozone layer depletion, loss of biodiversity, and increasing pollution.
The celebration of World Earth Day on 22 April is important because around this date spring comes in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.
Since the weather is also good during this time, it is more pleasant to celebrate the Earth Day.
The theme of Earth Day 2022 - to ‘Invest in our planet’.
