It’s Earth Day 2021

With the UK hosting the G7 summit in Cornwall’s Carbis Bay in June followed by the COP26 in Glasgow this November, Earth Day 2021 feels even closer to home. Launched in 1970 with a mission to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide, Earth Day works with over 75,000 partners in 192 countries to drive positive action for our planet.

This year’s theme is ‘Restore our Earth’ with a focus on natural processes, emerging green technologies and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems.
