Earth Day 2014, focus on green cities

5:28 AM, 22nd April 2014
Earth Day 2014
Earth Day 2014 will focus on the unique environmental challenges of our time.

NEW YORK, US: Every year on April 22, over a billion people in 190 countries take action for Earth Day. People are seen planting trees, clean up their communities, contact their elected officials, and more - all on behalf of the environment. Like Earth Days of the past, Earth Day 2014 will focus on the unique environmental challenges of our time. As the world’s population migrates to cities, and as the bleak reality of climate change becomes increasingly clear, the need to create sustainable communities is more important than ever. Hence, the global theme of Earth Day 2014 is ‘Green Cities.’

With smart investments in sustainable technology, forward-thinking public policy, and an educated and active public, we can transform our cities and forge a sustainable future. It’s time for us to invest in efficiency and renewable energy, rebuild our cities and towns, and begin to solve the climate crisis. Over the next two years, with a focus on Earth Day 2014, the Green Cities campaign will mobilize a global movement to accelerate this transition.

Recognizing that Mother Earth reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit, the General Assembly declared 22 April as International Mother Earth Day.
