世界地球日

4.22是世界地球日,也就是The world Earth Day. 不少品牌如Starbucks,IKEA,都舉行了有關的活動,那麼你對這個節日的了解有多少呢?

Background information:

Earth Day originated in the U.S in 1969 by democratic senator Gaylord nelson .

Former US Senator Gaylord Nelson, Earth Day’s co-founder, modeled Earth Day on anti-Vietnam War demonstrations, called “teach-ins,” that were common on college campuses. “At a conference in Seattle in September 1969, I announced that in the spring of 1970 there would be a nationwide grassroots demonstration on behalf of the environment,” says Nelson. “The response was electric. Telegrams, letters, and telephone inquiries poured in from all across the country.” As many as 20 million Americans participated in environmental rallies, demonstrations and other activities in the 1970 Earth Day.

世界地球日起源於美國,1970年4月22號,美國首次舉行了聲勢浩大的世界地球日活動,這是歷史上以來第一次規模宏大的群眾性保護環境活動。

1990年4月22號,全球140個國家,2億多人同時在不同地方舉行了宣傳環境保護的活動,這項活動得到了聯合國的首肯,所以地球日變成了世界地球日。

The aim of the function:

Since the first Earth Day, however, the environmental movement has increasingly transformed itself from a largely grassroots, citizen crusade to a professionally-organized, established special interest.

在過去幾百年內,我們的家園地球,遭受了前所未有的破壞,地球上的資源不斷被汲取,而且隨著科技的發展和經濟的提升,地球資源已經越來越少,而且人類製造的垃圾,或含有有毒物質的污水,很大程度的破壞了環境。所以,世界地球日旨在喚起人類愛護地球,保護家遠的意識,在開發資源的同時也要保護好環境。

那麼,你會採取怎麼樣的行動來保護地球呢?
