At present, many such programs are organized in the world, which raise awareness about conservation of nature. This is because global warming is increasing rapidly in the world. Therefore, Earth Day is celebrated every year on 22 April. 

During the first year of the Corona period, a good and relief thing was seen that we can preserve our nature without harming it, but in the greed of resources, nature is unknowingly doing a lot of damage. 

This is the reason why global warming is increasing rapidly in the world. Therefore, on 22 April, Earth Day is celebrated every year with a resolve to create awareness about environmental protection and save the earth. 

In the United Nations, Earth Day is celebrated every year on March Aquinox, the time of the year when day and night are equal. The tradition was founded by peace activist John McCannel. Earth Day was celebrated on a large scale for the first time on 22 April 1970 to make people globally aware of the environment. 

Let us tell you that from the same day every year, on 22 April, the day was decided to celebrate Earth Day. Earlier, Earth Day was celebrated twice a year. This day was first held on 21 March and then 22 April. But after the year 1970, it was decided to celebrate it only on 22 April. 

Earth Day was observed on March 21 as a symbol of the spring of the northern hemisphere and the autumn of the southern hemisphere. Earth Day, observed on 21 March, has the support of the United Nations but it has only scientific and environmental importance, whereas the Earth Day celebrated on 22 April has political and social significance for the whole world.

This time during the Corona period, the theme of Earth Day is to restore the Earth to a good state again. For this, attention has to be paid to natural sources and emerging technologies which will be helpful in restoring the ecological system of the world.
