When is Earth Day?

Earth Day occurs on April 22 of every year. After the declaration of the Environmental Rights day in 1970, one of the major components of the day was to teach the population about the environment. As a result, the day was decided to be changed from January 28 to April 22. This was implemented because the week of April 22 fell between Spring Break and Final exams and allowed for more participation in the teach-ins throughout the nation.

The History of Earth Day

“The Arctic saw temperatures soar above 94 degrees” and “Climate Change: Pressure on Big Investors to act on the environment” are just some of the headlines that grace the morning newspapers in our daily lives. The environment is on the minds of every person nowadays. This is why Earth Day has grown into the biggest environmental movement today. But how did it all begin?
Earth Day was a byproduct of Santa Barabra’s massive oil spill in 1969. It is said the Wisconsin governor Gaylord Nelson, upon seeing the oil spill from his plane, decided to develop an environmental observance day. This environmental observance day was set for the anniversary of the oil spill on January 28, 1970. The name was set to Environmental Rights day, then changed to Earth Day, and was observed in around 2000 colleges as well as 10,000 primary and secondary schools throughout the United States.
The movement continued to grow. By 1990 the movement had spread to 141 countries with over 200 million people participating in the activities. These activities included recycling programs and marketing efforts. In 2000 an official campaign was started giving teachers, governments, and people “toolkits” to help combat different issues related to the environment.
