Dominica joins the global community in observance of Earth Day on Sunday
Earth Day is now recognised by the UN and observed each year by more than 500 million people in 175 countries, and Dominica is one of them.
Earth Day, a day intended to draw attention to the fragile nature of the environment and the need to preserve, conserve and protect it.
Earth Day focuses attention on the environmental issues that, if ignored, can pose a serious threat to our way of life and that of future generations. One of the themes of this year’s celebration is, “The Earth won’t — can’t — wait.”
In observance of Earth Day Dominica is to take part in the global screening of the first “One Day on Earth” feature documentary which is being held today (Sunday) worldwide.
The free screening takes place at the Arawak House of Culture at 6:00 pm
In the feature documentary, filmmakers from all over the world share their images of one day in their country.
Work by Dominican videographers Sheldon Casimir, Nixon George and Kurt Rolle, with music by Cornel Phillip is included in the documentary.
This is the 42 annivesary of Earth Day.
