EARTHDAY.ORG Announces Earth Day 2022 Theme – ‘Invest In Our Planet’
27 January 2022: EARTHDAY.ORG, the global organizer of Earth Day, has announced that the theme for Earth Day 2022 will be “Invest In Our Planet.” 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 Earth Day 2022 theme is focused on engaging the more than 1 billion people, governments, institutions, and businesses who participate in Earth Day to recognize our collective responsibility and 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.
Like the industrial, space, and information revolutions, all sectors of society can and must play major roles-this time with the extraordinary responsibilities to get it right. Need is converging with inventiveness and innovation, but everyone must play a role.
Governments can open new doors by incentivizing their citizens, businesses, and institutions to create and innovate. They can create a fair global economic system to implement these innovations and changes without giving up their role to advance and protect the public’s interests in this transition.
Like other economic revolutions, inventors, innovators, businesses, and investors are the most likely to drive significant change. It is up to all three sectors to harness the power of these change agents and the growing green financial markets and require that they create value both for themselves and for society as they drive green innovation.
“Investing in our planet provides benefits today that will continue into the future as well. And, these are across the board. Statistics support the fact that investing in environmentally-friendly systems results in lowered costs for corporations. Governments investing in climate education, in particular for countries such as India where half the population is below the age of thirty, makes for insured futures. Each citizen who invests in a green act contributes to jointly turn drops into waves of benefit for our common home – Earth,” said Karuna Singh, Regional Director, EARTHDAY.ORG.
