Mother Earth calls for more investment, awareness, action

Geneva, Apr 22 (Prensa Latina) Under the slogan "Invest in our planet", the whole planet celebrates today the International Mother Earth Day, with the purpose of raising awareness of humankind about issues triggered by climate change, overpopulation, and environmental pollution.

This important day should be concern for governments, companies and citizens in general, so that they fight for environmental sustainability, and thus offer an opportunity for new generations to live on a healthy planet.

The scientific community calls not to see the date as a passive one, but as a day of activism, proving it by repopulating forests, cleaning beaches, or simply educating new generations to learn how to care for and respect nature.

The SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic demonstrated that human health is closely related to that of the planet.

Human mistreatment of the Earth, loss of biodiversity, deforestation, intensive agricultural and livestock production, forest fires, pollution from illegal mining, are factors that may increase animal-to-human transmission of infectious diseases.

A new infectious disease emerges in humans every four months, and 75% of them come from animals, according to the UN Environment Program.
