Earth Day, which falls on Saturday, April 22nd, is a worldwide celebration of life and positivity for world preservation awareness. The first Earth Day was celebrated worldwide on April 22nd, 1970. It is celebrated in over 190 countries and is currently one of the largest celebrated events in the world. As one of the largest non-profit ventures in the world, the Earth Day Movement has pushed for education and policy progress for over 40 years. Humans have one the highest effects on nature, and it is important for people to gain more awareness about their environment and natural resources. Not only is the news media sharing information on Earth Day celebrations, the film industry has been spreading awareness for decades.
The act of preserving the Earth is open to all ages, and the film industry has a movie for everyone. From documentaries to animated adventures, nature preservation and world films are a big part of Earth Day commemorations. Earth Day is not just about planting a seed in the ground, but spreading awareness for future planetary wellness.
A few great examples of family-friendly Earth Day movies are The Lorax, Wall-E, March of the Penguins, Hoot, and Schoolhouse Rock! Earth. With planetary awareness on the rise amongst family-friendly movies, younger generations have better representations of what Earth Day is all about. Taking care of the planet is a responsibility for everyone. Planting a tree, and recycling are great means of preservation, but movies and media can make the biggest impact to the broadest audiences. Another big Earth Day event is the Earth Day film Festival which is held worldwide. The Earth Day Film Festival is a showcase of environmentally conscientious films and film projects. With the festival focusing on new themes every year, the festival calls for better clean energy and better zero waste movements.
For cinephiles and documentary lovers, there is Welcome to Eden, a documentary on the preservation of the largest urban farm in America. Earth Day is only successful if people bring awareness to the world’s health and its problems.
