It was founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in first held on April 22, 1970. Earth Day is recognized globally by the Earth Day Network, and is celebrated in more than 175 countries every year. April 22 corresponds to spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. Numerous communities celebrate Earth Week, an entire week of activities focused on environmental issues. So to each of you – Happy Earth Day!
