Mother Earth Day (22 Apr 2018)


The UN has designated Sunday next, 22 April 2018, as Mother Earth Day and the following is an extract from the related UN site:

International Mother Earth Day is celebrated to remind each of us that the Earth and its ecosystems provide us with life and sustenance.

This Day also recognizes a collective responsibility, as called for in the 1992 Rio Declaration, to promote harmony with nature and the Earth to achieve a just balance among the economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations of humanity.

International Mother Earth Day provides an opportunity to raise public awareness around the world to the challenges regarding the well-being of the planet and all the life it supports.

MB shot this early morning photo on a Geneva Street (believe it or not!) in March 2017; showing nature against a beautifully intricate and eye-catching background of aircraft pollution.

A truly great shot MB. Thanks, ladies!

  1. “International Mother Earth Day is celebrated to remind each of us that the Earth and its ecosystems provide us with life and sustenance.” How sad that we humans need to be reminded of this! But fair play to you for doing so in such a lovely way, MB.
