Observed annually in more than 193 countries; Earth day is held to demonstrate and promote environmental awareness.
COVID-19 has given a chance to all the people in the world to slow down and think about the earth. People have been forced by nature to realise the importance of the environment, going to the parks, walking in nature, looking at the clouds, listening to the birds outside… It has enabled us to realise one more time that we are not the owners of the earth, but a part of it. So take a break from what you are used to doing in your daily life and go out to explore the nature.
