Each year Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.

The first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species acts.

In 1990 the Earth Day became a global event and gave a huge boost to recycling efforts worldwide and also helped pave the way for the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro.

Earth Day - Understanding and Protecting Our Environment

The better we know our planet the better we can take care of it. Scientists around the world restlessly work on improving our understanding of our home planet and here on Stellare that will be the perspective on Earth Day.

Earthquakes are one of the more dramatic behaviors of the Earth. Understanding and predicting earthquakes will save lives and have economic impacts. Earthquakes can be devastating for the environment such as fires, contamination of fresh water sources etc. Earth Day here on Stellare will cover earthquakes and other quakes...

There are however many aspects of understanding and protecting our planet. A group of SU members will demonstrate various angles of looking at what and how to protect and understand planet Earth. (That includes more earthquakes, hurricanes, cultural heritage and more)


will all celebrate Earth Day.

Stay Tuned!
