Today the world celebrates Earth Day. This year our Earth Day began in Sicily last weekend, where we discussed about Sustainability and Tourism of future in the Botanical Garden of Palermo.

Today, the Earth Day’s 45th anniversary, let’s watch the Earth from space with this amazing video that shows our planet in all its beauty:

What is the Earth Day?

Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which day events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection.

The first Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year.

The day has a dual purpose. On the one hand reflect on various issues facing the planet: pollution of air, water and soil, destruction of ecosystems, the depletion of non-renewable resources to the disposal of toxic waste. The other is a crucial opportunity to propose and find viable solutions to address these issues. An important signal because of the grassroots participation of communities, organizations, citizens and environmentalists who care about the fate and health of our planet.

Now it’s our turn: take an action!

Untill now, we use 1.5 Earths’ worth of natural resources. But better choices can be made.

We can save the earth, for example, by traveling in a more sustainably way, eating organic food, cultivating a vegetable garden or planting a tree, reducing our waste every day, educating our children to take care of our planet.

Worldwide there are more than one billion acts of green: small and large actions that associations and groups of people are taking to save our planet: you can discover there here.

So, the future of the earth depends on us. Take an action!
