International Mother Earth Day was established in 2009, by the United Nations General Assembly under Resolution A/RES/63/278. It recognizes that "the Earth and its ecosystems are our home" and that "it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth."
The term Mother Earth is used because it "reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit".
It is decided to designate April 22 as International Mother Earth Day.
