If it’s Friday, it must be France …
We live on a magnificent planet. Today and every day we all have an obligation to do our part to help it survive. Today is Earth Day ~ Le Jour de la Terre 2016 … in many parts of the world.
Leaders from 160 countries will officially sign the Paris Climate Agreement which carries with it the hope it will help to stem global warming.
This photo of mine celebrates the land, sea and sky of the stunning Côte d’Azur. It reminds me of my good fortune to be able to spend time there. I know there are countless places in the world of breathtaking beauty … we all have our definitions of that. Think of what part of the world inspires you and share it with us. It might well be your own back yard!
Let’s appreciate the whole of this world and take an Earth Day pledge such as this one shared in children’s classrooms.
Young people are our hope for the future of our planet.
The primary goal for Earth Day this year is tree planting. Join Canada’s #Rooting4Trees campaign by clicking right here.
Earth Day began in 1970 as a day to celebrate the planet and encourage people to be more environmentally friendly. The first Earth Day celebration was held in the US in 1970 after a devastating oil spill. That event is widely regarded as the beginning of the modern environmental movement.
The focus of the day is on planting trees, increasing awareness about recycling, becoming involved in green projects, and reducing energy consumption.
Let’s commit to making every day Earth Day!
