Earth Day, which falls every year on April 22, was founded in 1970 by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson as a day of education about environmental issues. It is now celebrated around the world by more than one billion people in order to raise public awareness about environmental issues. Earth Day is considered the largest secular civic event in the world.
