Earth Day

Earth Day 2015 "It's Our Turn to Lead"

Earth Day Network’s global theme for Earth Day 2015: It’s Our Turn to Lead. For many, climate change seems like a remote problem, but the reality is that it’s already affecting people, animals and places around the world. A change needs to be made.

Yes it’s possible, but only in a world where all countries commit to a low carbon future. We’ve got the technology. All we need is the will. Sustainability is the answer to development—the only answer. But it won’t end with Earth Day. We need the movement to think ahead. Source – http://www.earthday.org/2015
