Earth Day Gifts / February 25, 2019 / Blanche Durham

The equinox seemed fitting time as it was the mid-point of spring and autumn across the hemispheres. A peace activist McConnell first presented his Earth Day idea to an audience at the UNESCO Conference on the Environment. He wanted Earth Day to be a global holiday where the world celebrates Earth s wonders and gifts. On March 21 1970 cities across the globe celebrated Earth Day. McConnell created an Earth Day proclamation that called upon people to take action against crises of the world such as famine war and poverty.

Founder of Common Cause John Gardner helped with a temporary office and college students helped field the office. Nelson appointed Dennis Hayes as coordinator of activities.
