Every year on April 22, not just a big, but a truly global holiday is celebrated - International Mother Earth Day - the day of our common cozy home.
The holiday was established at the 63rd session of the UN General Assembly in 2009 (by resolution No. A / RES / 63/278, co-sponsored by more than 50 UN member states) and has been celebrated since 2010 on April 22.
The President of the 63rd session of the General Assembly, Miguel d'Escoto Brockman, said that the proclamation of this International Day in a resolution is a recognition that the Earth and its ecosystems are our home, provide life for humanity, as well as a confirmation of the commitments made at the UN Conference on the Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. Therefore, in order to achieve a fair balance between the economic, social and environmental needs of current and future generations, it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and planet Earth.
