It is the annual Earth Day on Monday April 22nd.
What exactly is Earth Day?
“It is a day of political action and civic participation. People march, sign petitions, meet with their elected officials, plant trees, clean up their towns and roads. Corporations and governments use it to make pledges and announce sustainability measures. Faith leaders, including Pope Francis, connect Earth Day with protecting God’s greatest creations, humans, biodiversity and the planet that we all live on.”(https://www.earthday.org/earthday/)
The theme for Earth Day 2019 is Protect Our Species
