Earth Day

Find out what you can do to help mother earth

Poor old mother Earth. Constantly taken for granted and underappreciated, Earth Day is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's natural environment. Founded by US Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in first held on April 22, 1970, Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network and is celebrated on Apr. 22 in more than 175 countries every year, including Vietnam.

In anticipation of the celebration, RMIT students organised three events last month, including tree planting, a green-themed fancy dress and green disguises, under the banner of Give The Earth A Hand. Log on to www.earthday.org to see how you can get involved.
