Event Description

Mother Earth is a common expression for the planet earth in a number of countries and regions, which reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit.

The Earth and its ecosystems are our home. In order to achieve a just balance among the economic, social, and environmental needs of present and future generations, it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth.

International Mother Earth Day is celebrated to remind each of us that the Earth and its ecosystems provide us with life and sustenance.

This Day also recognizes a collective responsibility, as called for in the 1992 Rio Declaration, to promote harmony with nature and the Earth to achieve a just balance among the economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations of humanity.

International Mother Earth Day provides an opportunity to raise public awareness around the world to the challenges regarding the well-being of the planet and all the life it supports.

Dear Mother Earth -Happy Earth day!

"The earth is regarded as one of our mothers. From it is born our body and to it our body  returns after death."

The relationship between a Mother and a child is one of dependency, trust, nurturing and respecting the guidance the Mother provides.  Our planet is endangered today by the lack of our respect towards her, and the beings which live here.
