Greenpeace Day is dedicated to Greenpeace. Environmental problems still remain in the modern world. This day is a great opportunity to show your initiative and help the environment. It is celebrated annually on September 15th.
The contribution of Greenpeace is difficult to overestimate. The history of the world-famous organization began on September 15, 1971, when nuclear tests were conducted in Alaska at sea. Then the initiative group united 17 activists from Vancouver who opposed the tests. A ship called the Greenpeace was sent in protest to Alaska. As a result, the government had to cancel nuclear testing, which was the first small victory for this environmental organization.
A lot of time has passed since then. Greenpeace is a successful organization with offices in many countries around the world. Every year, events and meetings are held aimed at solving important environmental problems. The organization actively promotes the idea of caring for the planet and raising awareness of environmental issues in the world. Greenpeace plays an important role not only in protecting the environment but also in countering the proliferation and use of nuclear weapons.
To emphasize the great importance of the organization, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson decided to declare September 15, Greenpeace Day.
- The purpose of the organization is to preserve nature and peace on Earth, and teach people to take better care of natural resources.
- The biggest problem in the world is air pollution and climate change due to human activity.
