    History of Earth Day

    The history of Earth Day dates back to 1970 and was inspired by a USA Senator Gaylord Nelson. Following an environmental diaster in the ocean off the coast of California, he chaired a student conference about the importance of clean air and water. April 22nd was chosen as a convenient date for the first meeting and organisers decided to name the date Earth Day.

    In 1990 approached, a group of environmental leaders approached Denis Hayes to once again organise another major campaign for the planet on a global basis with over 200 million people in 141 countries and raising environmental issues onto the world stage.
