Earth Day (22/04/22)

April 22 is International Earth Day, a day dedicated to promoting harmony with nature and the earth. The Earth Day 2022 theme is ‘Invest In Our Planet’. It is a great opportunity to recognize and appreciate that the Earth and its ecosystems are our home and learn how we can mend, rebuild, and sustain a healthy planet.

“You can not get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you.  What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”

– Dr Jane Goodall

Great Teaching Resources:

You can find an abundance of information and resources on the Earth Day website. The website also contains activities and opportunities used to encourage individuals to take the step towards a healthier planet. There is an education library containing amazing resources such as toolkits, lesson plans and quizzes starting from beginner to advanced levels.

The Restore Our Earth Climate Education Toolkit is a great toolkit that explores five topics; ecosystem services, the carbon cycle, food sustainability, ecosystem restoration and civic engagement, providing actions that can be taken individually to community/advocacy.

Act now:

  • Take the CQSS2030 “How Sustainable Are You?” quiz to find out how sustainable you are and what you can do to improve your sustainability.
