Event - United Nations International Mother Earth Day

United Nations International Mother Earth Day

04.24.16, 2:00 pm

“The word ‘mother’ holds great power. It evokes memories of the women who gave us life, nurtured us as infants and helped mold us into who we are today. The Earth is the ultimate mother – an astounding planet that has, since time immemorial, supported life in myriad forms. As humans, we outgrow the need for constant maternal care. But we can never outgrow our reliance on Mother Earth. As long as we live, we need air, water, fertile soil and the countless other gifts this planet bestows…. …But the big decisions that lie ahead are not just for world leaders and policy-makers. Today, on Mother Earth Day, I ask each one of us to be mindful of the impacts our choices have on this planet, and what those impacts will mean for future generations… ”    UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

So please join the celebration while promoting our mother earth.
