The Karaganda-based NGO EcoMuseum invites you to celebrate International Mother Earth Day this Sunday, April 23. Together we will watch the documentary film “Before the Flood” and discuss it. We expect you and your friends at 5 PM at B. Zhyrau Avenue 47, Karaganda. Admission is free.
A National Geographic film starring Leonardo DiCaprio about the devastating effects of climate change and human exploitation of our planet. The internationally acclaimed actor became a UN peace ambassador for the planet's climate in 2014. In the film, the Hollywood star explores the problem and tries to find a solution. After the screening, we will discuss what everyone can do to combat climate change and what eco habits will help us do so.
The event is part of the “Our Response to Climate Change”(*) Initiative.
The Earth Day is only one! Or?
International Mother Earth Day takes place on April 22nd and was established by the UN General Assembly in 2009. Extreme heat waves, forest fires, hurricanes and floods affecting millions of people are all consequences of climate change which, in turn, is caused by human activities. Deforestation, unsustainable land use and livestock breeding, poaching, industrial production, and extractive industries disrupt biodiversity and destroy the planet.
International Mother Earth Day is a reminder that each of us owes our existence to our planet and its ecosystems. On this day worldwide, there are different ecological events - “subbotniks”, tree planting, exhibitions, festivals, etc.
By the way, some may have noticed that there are two opportunities in the calendar of international dates - March 20 and April 22. The first has a peacekeeping and humanistic orientation; the second has an environmental one.
