Today marks the 42nd Earth Day. This annual event, which always falls on the 22nd of April, is the world’s largest environmental movement. Earth Day aims to increase awareness of the impact humans have on the environment, and the day is now marked by more than 1 billion people worldwide. The Earth Day 2022 theme is ‘Invest In Our Planet’ – encouraging everyone (businesses, governments, and citizens alike) to act now so we can reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century to keep the global temperature below 1.5°C.
Visit earthday.org to learn about some key solutions that will help us deliver the greenhouse gas reductions needed by 2030 to meet the Paris Agreement.
Here are some photos of the Rowan team enjoying the great outdoors to acknowledge the day.
