The Earth and its future, along with that of future generations, must be protected and safeguarded. The climate emergency has made this urgent. Life on Earth, the beauty, and the diversity of the natural world is under threat.

Now more than ever, action is crucial. We are all called to make a difference

Earth Day is a singular and essential moment to remember this and to play our part. The 22nd of April 2022, the 52nd International Earth Day established by the United Nations, is an important moment.

This year’s theme is “Invest in Our Planet”, and it is accompanied by the message “together, for everyone, everything, every day”.

On this occasion, Italian Composer and Pianist Giovanni Allevi, Ambassador of the event, and artists from all over the world will come together in a unique, touching global celebration of our planet. The event is focused on the new generations, young people, and their future.
