Happy Earth Day! For nearly 50 years, people around the world have celebrated Earth Day to support environmental movements and build awareness around issues such as climate change.

The Earth Day campaign this year is environmental and climate literacy. In order to change the way we treat our planet, we need to be knowledgeable about the environmental issues we face today and the actions we can take to solve them. Building awareness about climate change and its impact on the planet can help us create a greener, cleaner society.
