Mother Earth is the common name for the planet Earth in a number of countries and regions, reflecting the interdependence that exists between human, other living beings, and the planet that we all inhabit. International Mother Earth Day is intended to remind everyone that each of us owes our existence to our planet and its ecosystems.

The Earth and its ecosystems are our home, and to achieve an equitable balance between the economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations, it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the planet Earth.

On this Day, we must recognize our collective responsibility, as noted in the 1992 Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, to live and act in harmony with nature so that our activities in the economic, social and environmental spheres do not damage nature and ensure the preservation of the earth for future generations.

International Mother Earth Day gives us the opportunity to learn about the difficult challenges facing humanity to save the planet. <
