It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the largest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.” – David Attenborough

History of International Earth Day or International Mother Earth Day

In 1940, Senator Gaylord Nelson organized the International Earth Day on April 22 to promote ecology and to increase the awareness about the increasing problems of water, air and the soil pollution. In some parts of the world, International Mother Earth Day is observed around the time of March equinox. The symbol used to describe the day contains an image of planet earth; a flower or leaves depicting the growth, and the colours like green, blue and brown will be used. Let’s celebrate the Day by spreading awareness among the people about the protection of our natural environment.

Anthem for International Mother Earth Day

Lyrics for the Earth Day Anthem “Ode to Joy” are as follows:

Joyful joyful we adore our Earth in all its wonderment
Simple gifts of nature that all join into a paradise
Now we must resolve to protect her
Show her our love throughout all time
With our gentle hand and touch
We make our home a newborn world
Now we must resolve to protect her
Show her our love throughout all time
With our gentle hand and touch
We make our home a newborn world
