Earth Day 2009, April 22, will mark the beginning of The Green Generation Campaign which will also be the focus of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day in 2010. With negotiations for a new global climate agreement coming up in December, Earth Day 2009 must be a day of action and civic participation, to defend The Green Generation’s core principles: Family with windmills: Renewable energy for future generations.
- A carbon-free future based on renewable energy that will end our common dependency on fossil fuels, including coal.
- An individual’s commitment to responsible, sustainable consumption.
- Creation of a new green economy that lifts people out of poverty by creating millions of quality green jobs and transforms the global education system into a green one.
Philippine Earth Day 2009's slogan is “Tubig at Lupa Buhayin, Hangin Linisin, Batas Tuparin!” . As we look forward on the on this global event, let us focus in our own backyard, how we have abused our rivers, creeks and even the air we breath, we still have a chance to change our ways. Look what we have done to our surroundings -
