Earth Day

Hello! I live in Sousse, Tunisia.

Today; 22nd, we celebrate Earth Day. This Day is a day to remember and to take care of our planet, Earth. We can take care of our planet by keeping it clean and by following the rule of "Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”. On Earth Day, we remind ourselves and everyone on Earth that we must do these things every day, not just on Earth Day. We can reduce our use of resources like water, we can reuse many things such as jars, plastic bags and boxes and finally we can keep Earth clean by recycling materials such as aluminum, paper and plastic.

(For this day I give you a poem about Earth Day):

“Our Earth is special, there's just one.

It gives us water, soil and sun

People and animals share the land,

Let's all lend a helping hand!!

You can save water, and plant a tree

Make a better home for you and me.

Recycle things, don't throw away.

Make every day on Earth Day!”

I wish you will like this poem. Please, we must all do our part and we can make a difference!

      good evening ladies and gentlemen,👋 I am the talkative squirrel from Sousse Tunisia I am twelve years old. Today is April 22nd, does this day remind you of something, O humanity ???? I think it is an important historical day for the world, but I do not think that the new generation has even heard of it !! This day is not the birthday of your sister or your mother, it is Mother’s Day, Mother Nature’s Day, Today is Mother’s Day, Earth’s Day, yes, the Earth that gives us generously and will continue to give us. It is time for us to respond to the favor of this planet .🌏 nature is our nurturing mother our physical mother allows us to sit on her knees for a few years .. but nature supports our weight during our lifetime. nature is life she is the source of all virtue so we have to protect her and be grateful but how ???


      -Do not throw garbage on the ground .
      - We must not damage trees or trample plants
      .- and above all we must multiply trees near factories and stop deforestation.
      -Do not slaughter animals.
      - factories must be built far from residential areas.
      - the most important thing is to respect the earth ....
      He who pollutes nature traces the path to his death. our environment is threatened it is in danger and at the edge of a precipice we must react and call for help !!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻

    Hi it's observant_sparrow
    Earth Day was celebrated for the first time on April 22, 1970. The objective of this day is to promote the development of a mass of citizens aware of climate issues. Over the years, Earth Day has grown to be the largest participatory environmental movement on the planet.

    Hi i'm the pioneering_mango from Tunisia,
    Today is april 22. All the world celebrate the earth day which is an annual event to demonstrate support for environmental protection.
    Here are some activities you can organize in your municipality as part of Earth Day:
    Conferences and workshops Invite a renowned speaker and / or from your region to come and educate your citizens about an environmental issue
    Offer a conference highlighting a citizen sustainable development project in order to mobilize as many people as possible around it
    Offer a workshop on home composting, horticulture, herbalism , healthy eating, ecological maintenance of lawns and gardens, making a birdhouse with recovered materials, etc.
    Suggest the screening of an environmental documentary or film and plan to host a discussion-debate
    Submit an environmental documentary or film online and plan to host an online discussion-debate
    Environmental challenges Organize a "plogging" style race to collect the waste that crosses your path
    Organize a cleaning chore (parks, riverbanks, schoolyards, etc.). There may be incentives such as a “heaviest bag” contest
    Challenge your citizens for Earth Day (example: a day without a car or without a computer and without a television).
    Organize a plantation of trees or shrubs with young and old
    Organize a guided tour of the residual materials management site (s): landfill, incinerator, composting site, recycling plant. One of the people in charge of these places could explain the challenges municipalities face.
    Sales bio-food or t-shirts painted with the picture of the earth and donations.
    Distribute plants for free (flowers, vines, perennials and / or shrubs) to green and beautify the municipality
    Other mobilization activities Suggest the screening of an environmental documentary or film and plan to host a discussion-debate
    Celebrate Earth Day by publishing a special section in the municipal newspaper containing tips and tricks to become better eco-citizens.
    Organize a small taste fair to introduce citizens to regional products and a tasting of organic and fair trade products
    Promote sustainable transport by asking elected municipal officials to get around using active transport (walking, cycling, etc.)
    Organize recycling competitions to promote citizens to recycling.
    plant trees and flowers with the students in schools.
    Organize awareness campaigns in schools to aware pupil on saving our planet.
    Organize excursions to the fields and learn how we make difference between bio food and organic food.
    And don't forget, taking concrete action on April 22 is good, but together we can make any day an earth day not just April 22 to protect our planet so let's protect the Earth.
    In Tunisia we have other special days related to the environment like the "tree day" we celebrate this day the second sunday of november. On this day the most of the people plant trees and flowers in their streets.

      Well done! If you can, always try to put a link to websites you use so others can research it for themselves too.

    Hi it's flowing_mulberry!
    In our days, people are afraid of the covid-19 and they think that it's the enemy of the humanity. But in reallity life, the real dangerous enemy today is the pollution which become biger and stronger day by day! So if we don't stop it, living in this planet will be just a dream. And that's why we should start fixing our mistakes. And for this occasion, I wrote this acrostic poeme:
    From years and years ,
    Reducing of pollution was impossible
    Even in this horrible
    Situation, solving this issue wasn't belivable!
    Hey, this is pathetic!
    *****
    Starting again isn't impossible
    Together beacause we are all responsible
    After defeating the invisible
    Racer, rules will be breakable
    Today, human is depandable
    *****
    For being greedable
    Ozon layer can be repairable
    Reaching this goal is makable

    ******
    Alone, this is impossible
    ******
    But together, it's possible
    Even if it's horrible
    Together this is possible!
    Together this is possible!
    End of this terrible
    Race is makable
    ******
    Life can't be comfortable
    I kow that so many are pessimist
    For this disaster which is imbelivable
    Earth should be happier! Earth should be happier! Earth should be happier!
    All in all, alone I can't face this enemy but if we are united we will change the situation and defeat the pollution.
    Fresh start for a better life!
    Sorry for my late comment!
