International Mother Earth Day
''Mother Earth is clearly urging a call to action. Nature is suffering. Oceans filling with plastic and turning more acidic. Extreme heat, wildfires and floods, have affected millions of people. Even these days, we are still trying to get back on track from COVID-19, a worldwide health pandemic linked to the health of our ecosystem.
Climate change, man-made changes to nature as well as crimes that disrupt biodiversity, such as deforestation, land-use change, intensified agriculture and livestock production or the growing illegal wildlife trade, can accelerate the speed of destruction of the planet.'' - United Nations International Mother Earth Day 22 April 2023
With the rise of technology, we have disconnected ourselves from the natural world yet connecting to nature, the people, and the places we inhabit cultivate a socially sustainable environment. The natural world shapes our human sense of beauty & harmony and to live in harmony with the natural world is what gives sense to our humanity.
''For this International Mother Earth Day, let's remimd ourselves - more than ever - that we need a shift to a more sustainable economy that works for both people and the planet. Let’s promote harmony with nature and the Earth. Join the global movement to restore our world!''
