Earth Day 2020

Wednesday 22 April marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.

Wednesday 22 April marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.

It’s a time when millions across the globe partake in positive action in order to raise awareness and save the planet.

This year will be different. Earth day 2020 will be the first ever digital Earth Day. Participants are encouraged to use hashtags #EarthDay2020 and #EARTHRISE to safely raise awareness during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s clear to see benefits of reduced air traffic from the wonderfully bright blue skies across London. No photoshop is necessary. No doubt too, the Greenwich foreshore is breathing a sigh of relief from the aggressive wash created by the Thames Clipper boats.

London, nowadays, seems to be more in harmony with nature than ever before. Birdsong has been heard louder than anyone can remember, the night sky seems crisper and stars visible. Perhaps there is a way for this to remain the new normal. What will you do differently going forward?
