Resources for Earth Day

Spring is the renewal of life. The first Earth Day, proclaimed by the City of San Francisco and celebrated on March 21, 1970 was created by John McConnell. What led him to the idea was his interest in Space exploration and awareness of the March Equinox, nature's primary day of global equilibrium.

In 1971 UN Secretary General U. Thant rang the United Nations Peace Bell on March 21, 1971. This began the annual celebration of Earth Day at the United Nations.

But whether it is celebrated on the vernal equinox or on April 22, the purpose of Earth Day is to provide an annual date on which the whole world (people of every creed and culture) rededicate themselves to the care of Earth.
