Every year we are reminded of our responsibility to take care of Mother Nature through Earth Day celebration. Let not the actions remain on this day but throughout our living days

Oh My Nature! Earth Day Celebration

On April 22, the globe will again celebrate Earth Day. According to Wikipedia, Earth day was first celebrated around 1970 all over 192 countries. The event showcases activities geared toward the protection of our environment and the rehabilitation of Mother Nature as spearheaded by Earth Day Network.

Since climate change has been a growing problem across the nations, Earth day is a constant reminder that a definite action must be done delay if not totally eradicate the adverse effects of climate change, global warming, and calamities caused by a destroyed nature.

In the Philippines, various activities aim to raise awareness among the citizens on how to better protect and rehabilitate nature. Programs held in our country include, but not limited, to tree planting, street cleaning, and river cleaning. Some of the advocates visit far rural area to educate locals on hazardous burning of materials which could deplete the atmosphere and contribute to global warming.

Currently, ways to take care of our environment are already inculcated to subjects in elementary and highschool, and even courses at universities. Eventually schools, universities, government agencies and private institutions have collaborated to further environmental awareness and reach more people.

Meanwhile, artist and performers from the music industry also joined the advocacy. A number of artist dedicated their works and masterpieces to the protection of nature through their creative interpretation of the problem and solutions. The music industry made some releases of songs with focus on environmental issues and the awareness of it.

Earth day is the moment in a year when we should be reminded of the great blessings we have been bestowed with from nature and the responsibility which comes with it. The issues of global warming and the threat of environmental destruction are at hand. We need not only to see it but also move faster to rehabilitate what we have caused our Mother Earth not only on Earth day but every day of our lives; As the theme goes “Every Day Everyday, everywhere, for everyone”.
