UN International Mother Earth Day - 22 April, SDGs 9, 13, 14, and 15

International Mother Earth Day is a great opportunity for us to remember its significance and importance to career and livelihood. The significance is that it serves to bring to the forefront the need of humanity to do more to appreciate and protect our home, planet Earth. Every single one of us must take responsibility and help.

The UN Environment Programme website addresses the importance of livelihood: “The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 22 April as International Mother Earth Day through a resolution adopted in 2009. The Day recognizes the Earth and its ecosystems as humanity's common home and the need to enhance people’s livelihoods, counteract climate change, and stop the collapse of biodiversity."

International Mother Earth Day addresses all SDGs, specifically 9, 13, 14, and 15.

I would like to remind you, too, how we see the devastation to planet Earth every day and how vital it is to be intentional in helping people succeed in careers and livelihoods that would generate good outcomes.

Many of us, me included, live in communities impacted heavily by unusually strong rains, flooding, land and road erosions, homes collapsing, and infrastructure failing. Most recently, Dubai received a year’s worth of rainfall in one day.


It is up to all of us to help people developing careers and livelihoods realize their work can turn planet Earth from the path that is degrading. Check out the career information sites at the links for your students and clients:
