Under the slogan "Investing in our planet," the world celebrates today, Saturday, Earth World Day, which is an annual event celebrated around the world on April 22 of each year, with the aim of raising societal awareness of environmental issues.
The idea of establishing Earth Day goes back to US Senator Gaylord Nelson, an American politician and environmentalist, when he and his assistant Dennis Hayes visited Santa Barbara, California in 1969. They were angry and terrified when they saw the large quantities of oil polluting the waters of the Pacific Ocean near the American coast for a distance of several miles. This pollution had a serious impact on the environment and made the life of fish, birds and aquatic life impossible, and then the senator was able to convince President "John F. Kennedy" to carry out a national action represented in discussing environmental conservation issues, and therefore Nelson was credited with establishing Earth Day as an educational environmental day.
