To understand importance of earth day it is important to make awareness among the people regarding changing climate and increasing temperature. Usually, these auspicious days are being observed but not with the intensity which is required. In Jammu and Kashmir almost all districts, all departments, schools, colleges and other institutions observe this day but at the same time did not follow the rules to save earth. Such tactics is useless and unless some people are made responsible to force people to understand that importance and observe it to follow. However, Earth Day, celebrated annually on April 22, is a reminder to protect the environment, restore damaged ecosystems and live a more sustainable life. First celebrated in 1970, this year marks its 52nd anniversary. Earth Day has been celebrated since 1970. It was first observed in the United States, when some 20 million people took to the streets to protest against the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill. Since then, the occasion has played an important role in raising awareness on other environmental issues. In fact, the landmark Paris Agreement, which was signed by nearly 200 countries to set a common target to reduce global greenhouse emissions, was signed on Earth Day in 2016. Meanwhile, Climate change, man-made changes to nature as well as crimes that disrupt biodiversity, such as deforestation, land-use change, intensified agriculture and livestock production or the growing illegal wildlife trade, can accelerate the speed of destruction of the planet, thus there arises special need to check these things at regular intervals then only would be achied the target of observing earth day.
