For Earth Day 2021 we want to revisit the commonly heard phrase that “Humans must learn to co-exist with the Nature”. We are not co-existing with nature, We are a PART of nature and cannot exist outside of it. This Earth Day let’s remember to honor nature by remembering the plain fact that Human Life is not possible without our Earth.
Earth Day is a global event annually held on April 22, proposed as a day to honor the Earth, the concept of peace and to show support for the environment and its protection. First held on April 22, 1970, today it includes a large number of events coordinated globally by EARTHDAY.ORG in more than 193 countries.
People from all over the private and public sectors of Pakistan took to Twitter to talk about the globally celebrated day and are raising important concerns.

The 10 Billion Tree Tsunami, launched by the Ministry of Climate Change in 2014, by the government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, also contributed their share, by talking about their ongoing project which seeks to “improve the overall conservation of the existing Protected Areas; encourage eco-tourism, community engagement and job creation through the conservation.”
