The Origination of Earth Day

World Earth Day was observed during the UNESCO convention in San Francisco in 1969 on 22nd April 1970. Mr. John Mc Connell, a peace activist, suggested honouring Mother Earth and the idea of peace. It was suggested that World Earth Day be celebrated on 21st March 1970, the first spring day in the Northern Hemisphere. But later, U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson suggested holding a national environmental awareness on 22nd April 1970, renaming it Earth Day.
