About the World Earth Day:

  • April 22 is observed as ‘World Earth Day’ every year.
  • 2020 is the 50th anniversary of this celebration.
  • The theme for World Earth Day 2020 is “Climate Action”.
  • The first Earth Day, observed in 1970, was a unified response to an environment in crisis — oil spills, smog, rivers so polluted they literally caught fire.
  • The first observance launched a wave of action, including the passage of landmark environmental laws in the United States.
  • Many other countries also followed suit.
