關於地球日

地 球日 – 4 月22 日,由美國參議員蓋洛德·尼爾森於1970年成立,已成為國際重要的環保節日。於當時的美國, 工業行業對於濃煙及污泥排放所引申的法律後果或負面報導有恃無恐。公眾在沒有選擇下,均需接受空氣污染換來城市繁榮的代價。蓋洛德·尼爾森受到學生反戰運 動的啟發,意識到如果他能將這股力量投入到關注空氣污染及食水污染等大眾議題,便可將環保議題納入國家議程。於是在1970年4月22日,20萬美國人民 走上街頭、公園和禮堂旨在喚起人類愛護地球、促進資源開發與環境保護的協調發展,進而改善地球的整體環境。

世界地球日在今天

由於氣候變化造成的破壞越趨嚴重,保護環境的需求亦因此日益嚴峻。2016年,國家地理頻道很高興將Earth Day Run帶到香港。我們希望能讓更多的人了解世界地球日,並為後世代建設一個清潔、健康及多樣化的世界。

ABOUT EARTH DAY

Earth Day – April 22, is founded by a U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson, marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. At that time in America, industry belched out smoke and sludge with little fear of legal consequences or bad press. Air pollution was commonly accepted as the smell of prosperity. Inspired by the student anti-war movement, Gaylord Nelson realized that if he could infuse that energy with an emerging public consciousness about air and water pollution, it would force environmental protection onto the national political agenda. As a result, on the 22nd of April, 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies.

EARTH DAY TODAY

The fight for a clean environment continues in a climate of increasing urgency, as the ravages of climate change become more manifest every day. In 2016, National Geographic Channel is happy to bring Earth Day Run to Hong Kong. We hope to let more people know about Earth Day and channel it into building a clean, healthy, diverse world for generations to come.throughout the year.
