On April 22 every year, we celebrate the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement with Earth Day. Since the first Earth Day in 1970, this day has marked global collaboration and awareness of the need to fight for a cleaner and healthier Earth. It all began in 1962 when Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring hit the New York’s bestseller list selling over 500,000 copies in 24 countries. As public awareness and concerns were raised over the environment, and the links between pollution and public health were put in the spotlight, Earth Day 1970 would come to provide a voice to this emerging environmental awareness. Today, with over 190 engaged and committed countries and over 1 billion individuals involved, Earth Day has come a long way. Since the first Earth Day, important strides have been made worldwide including the signing of the historic Paris Agreement and the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and Earth Day continues to grow every year.
This year, the theme is “Invest In Our Planet” with a focus on preserving and protecting our health, our families, and our livelihoods because a green future is a prosperous future. To help you engage with Earth Day and its values, Elsevier presents a curated list of publicly available journal articles and book chapters. At Elsevier, we support environmental awareness an the goal of achieving a sustainable and equitable future. Together, we must #InvestInOurPlanet.
