WHAT IS THE THEME OF WORLD EARTH DAY 2020?


Hi Readers, I hope you are safe and staying at home due to global lockdown. I stay in India and I am writing this blog on 30th March, 6th day of the lockdown. In India, there is a lockdown of 21 days. I am a social activist and working towards environment conservation from the last 3~4 years.

Are you amazed at why I am writing my introduction and telling you about global lockdown? I hope you must be, but I can see a close relationship, and, in this blog, I would love to share my thought on the relationship of global lockdown and environment protection.

2020 World Earth Day Theme


In the meantime, let’s go back to the topic of world earth day and see what is going to happen on this year of Earth Day.

World Earth Day is the global event celebrated every year on 22nd April and this year Earth day is very special for all of us who love our planet mother Earth. This year marks the 50th anniversary of world earth day. The theme of 2020 World Earth Day is Climate Change.

The first earth day was celebrated on 22nd April 1970 and it was founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson. On this day in 1970, millions of Americans came out to the streets and demanded a strict method to protect the mother planet. The major purposes of the earth day were to provide clean air, clean water, and the protection of endangered species.

What is the Theme of World Earth Day 2020?

The theme of 2020 world earth day is Climate change and changing climate conditions is the biggest concern of the 21st century. It is the biggest threat to the future of humanity and the life support systems that make our world habitable. It would be a historic moment when the whole world comes together to meet our climate crisis and seize the enormous opportunities of a zero-carbon future.

What is the origin of World Earth Day?

The idea of earth day came into the mind of Senator Gaylord Nelson when he saw the extensive damage at Santa Barbara, California in 1969. Thousands of species like seabirds, dolphins, sea lions, etc. were died due to blowing out of 3 gallons oil. As a reaction of this disaster, several environmental activists were mobilized to create environment regulation. Nelson sensed the energy of these activists and convinced them to use this enthusiasm to raise public consciousness about air & water pollution. He met with Mr. Pete McCloskey and persuaded him to reserve a day for Earth Day. 25 years old Denis Hayes was appointed as coordinator. 

Finally, on 22nd April 1970, the first earth day observed. On this day, millions of American students collected in the streets, school & college campus, parks, auditoriums, etc. to demonstrate the importance of a healthy & sustainable environment. Thousands of universities also organized events in the school & colleges and registered their protest for the deterioration of the environment. Since then, it became the global movement and all the groups working individually for different environmental concerns came together and raise their voice in a united manner.

Since 1970, every year on 22nd April, Earth Day is celebrated and the purpose of this day is to ensure the availability of clean air, clean water and protect the endangered species. This year celebration marks the 50th anniversary of World Earth Day

There are unlimited ways to serve our motherland or mother planet. We are already aware of several activities but I still sharing some common practices to follow.

*Plant a tree or if you don’t have space to plant a new tree, just adopt a new plant tree and ensure the long life of that tree.

What is the meaning of Lockdown & Pros/Cons of global lockdown on the Environment?

Lockdown is basically a kind of situation where humans are not allowed to roam freely due to the emergency. It occurs due to coronavirus. Coronavirus started from China and then spread all over the world. It created a panic situation in the world and the entire world is suffering from this pandemic disease. India is also in the list of countries affected by Coronavirus and to minimize the risk of Coronavirus, the Indian prime minister announced the lockdown of 21 days last week. I know, there are many negative consequences of lockdown and it is a very difficult situation for the entire world. 

As we couldn’t avoid the lockdown, so I tried to find out some positives in it and found two positives in favor of nature. I don’t know whether you like or dislike, but I urge all my readers to share your opinions as well in the comment box or mail us.

*Due to lockdown, all humans are locked inside the house while animals are roaming freely on the streets.


*There are no vehicles on the road, so the quality of Air index has been improved.
