World Earth Day, How It All Started

World Earth Day, How It All Started

It has been recently revealed in a report that recently, the Earth Day was celebrated. The basic idea of the Earth Day was to celebrate Mother Nature and to help in building a better future for the world. The creator of the day was Gaylord Nelson. There were other related such as President John Kennedy as well.

The March Earth Day was created and conceptualized by John McConnell. The idea was formulated back in the year 1969. “Just as a single prayer can be significant, how much more so when hundreds, thousands, millions of people throughout the world join in peaceful thoughts and prayers to nurture neighbor and nature”, he had revealed about the reason for choosing that particular day for the event.

The idea was even forwarded to the San Francisco Board of Advisors. They, on the other hand, were of the view that the idea was great and workable and the first ever Earth day was celebrated on the 21st of March in the year 1970. The main aim of celebrating this day was to value nature and to celebrate the joys and wonders it has blessed humanity with. There was a whole new form of awakening about the world and the need for preserving it, after the celebration of this day was started.

It was supposed to be a way to bring to terms nature and science, something that could help in bringing about a new way of seeing the world for the people. The amalgamation of science can bring glorious results and the entire world has witnessed that a number of times. This is something that the Earth day had set out to celebrate.
