Every year since 1970 the United Nation have been celebrating Earth Day. Its purpose is to involve more and more nations to raise awareness about pollution, climate changes and global warming among their citizens. This year the central topic for the 51° anniversary is “Restore our Earth”, and it wants to highlight the emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems. We need to refuse the idea that we simply have to adapt to climate changes and the damages that we are causing to the environment. On the contrary, we have to actively fight to restore our Earth.
The main Italian celebration to raise awareness among the youth is the second edition of #OnePeopleOnePlanet produced by Earth Day Italia: testimonies intertwining with voices from all over the world live streaming for 13 hours on the platform rai play. The live television starts on April 22nd at 7:30 am, and it ends on the same day at 8:30 pm.
Moreover, to increase the media impact, #OnePeopleOnePlanet is hosting speeches, testimonies, performances, and campaigns. Numerous contributions of partners, associations, institutions, testimonials, representatives of the world of science, culture, art, show and sport will be available live and on demand on the web site www.onepeopleoneplanet.it.
