Earth Day - 22 April

International Mother Earth Day promotes a view of the Earth as the entity that sustains all living things found in nature. Inclusiveness is at the heart of International Mother Earth Day; fostering shared responsibilities to rebuild our troubled relationship with nature is a cause that is uniting people around the world.

UN General Assembly President Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann 

International Mother Earth Day provides an opportunity to raise public awareness around the world to the challenges regarding the well-being of the planet and all the life it supports.

The first dedicated International Earth Day was 1970 – the following images give an idea of the concerns at the time...we don’t seem to have progressed much in the 47 years since then!
     

The theme for 2017 is  Environmental & Climate Literacy.

Sr Elena Hoye, networker with the International Presentation Association, has prepared an Earth Day prayer for Presentation people around the world to come together and pray:
