EARTHDAY.ORG, the global organizer of Earth Day, on Tuesday announced the theme for Earth Day 2022 will be “Invest In Our Planet.”
A press release stated, “Earth Day 2022 is focused on accelerating solutions to combat our greatest threat – climate change – and to activate everyone – governments, citizens and businesses – to do their part. Everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable.”
The theme is focused on engaging the more than 1 billion people, governments, institutions and businesses who participate in Earth Day to recognize a collective responsibility and, organizers added, “to help accelerate the transition to an equitable, prosperous green economy for all. The goal of EDO’s campaign is to push aside the barriers erected by the ancient, dirty fossil fuel economy and their co-conspirators – old technologies of centuries past – and redirect attention to creating a 21st century economy that brings back the health of our planet, protects our species, and provides opportunities for all. EARTHDAY.ORG’s campaign is focused on reframing the conversation, accelerating action, and bringing us together to understand that this is within our reach if we work together.”
EARTHDAY.ORG President Kathleen Rogers said, “In 2022, we all must enter into one partnership for the planet. People, governments, and even most businesses fear change, but the status quo – the way we live today – is changing before our eyes. In building our future, individuals, businesses, governments each have a unique role – we need to act individually and together. Unlike other historic economic revolutions, this time there are two additional imperatives: The first is to save ourselves from the climate crisis, and the second is to build new green economies in every country so that everyone can share in the benefits from this green revolution. This will only be done if we invest in our planet’s future together.”
