Career Communications Group (CCG) recently hosted a panel discussion in honor of Earth Day on how communities can prepare to “Stand Up, Step Up, and Make the Change” for a better, cleaner, and safer tomorrow.

The discussion was focused on how science and technology can lead communities in addressing the climate crisis.

Anthony Kinslow II, the founding CEO of Gemini Energy Solutions, moderated the panel, which featured David Turner, whose last position served in the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers was South Atlantic Division commander; Dana Clare Redden CEO of Solar Stewards, and Dr. Regan Patterson, an environmental engineer and environmental justice researcher at Regan Patterson Consulting.

The first Earth Day, observed on April 22, 1970, mobilized millions of Americans from all walks of life to create the modern environmental movement.

Earth Day has since evolved into a time for ecological awareness and a catalyst for a more sustainable future.

Earth Day is the largest civic event in the world, observed by billions of people to safeguard the planet.

In 2019, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed April 22 as International Mother Earth Day, recognizing the Earth and its ecosystems as humanity’s typical and the need to protect it to enhance people’s livelihoods, counteract climate change, and stop biodiversity collapse.

The theme for Earth Day 2024 is Planet vs. Plastics, and the official Earth Day 2024 webpage outlines their commitment to reducing global plastic production by 0% by 2040.

It offers solutions for reducing plastic use and raising awareness through changes in how we shop, dispose of plastic waste, and utilize resources. Throughout the month, there is a lot of information about Earth Month and Earth Day.

Plastic is one of the most talked-about villains in pollution destruction. Microplastics are flowing into the ocean and eventually finding a way into our bodies. There are massive amounts of plastic materials filling up the sea and creatures’ bellies, killing thousands of marine life and animals who depend on them for survival.

Fortunately, many people worldwide are trying to make a difference and help save our planet and oceans. Researchers are tirelessly looking for solutions, organizations are donating to the cause, governments are banning straws and single-use plastic, and even individuals are doing their best to be conscious consumers.
