Every year on April 22 is celebrated not just a big, but truly global holiday - the International Mother Earth Day (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 (resolution No. A / RES / 63/278, co-sponsored by more than 50 UN member states) and celebrated on April 22, beginning in 2010.
The chairman of the 63rd session of the General Assembly, Miguel d'Escoto, said that the proclamation in the resolution of this International Day is a recognition that the Earth and its ecosystems are our home, provide humanity with life, and also confirm the commitments made at the UN Conference on the Environment and development in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. Therefore, to achieve an equitable balance between the economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations, it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the planet Earth.
