Google also took part in the celebration of Earth Day this year by releasing a special doodle on its homepage in this day. Doodle included pictures of aliens, earth and it’s designed as the doodle is placed on the outer space atmosphere. The placement of Aliens on the top of Google letter ‘g’ looking the earth gave a comic look to the Earth Day Google Doodle 2003. The outer space picture in the doodle with cracks and holes gave a special scenic beauty to the doodle.
John McConnell was the first one who put forward the idea of Earth Day celebration. It was in a UNESCO conference at San Francisco he expressed his thoughts on this. Name for this day was also suggested by him. The date for the Earth Day celebration was another at the initial years. Now more than 175 countries jointly celebrate the day to protect and spread awareness of earth.
Most of the countries organize many programs on that day to make world aware about the need for protection of earth. Seminars, symposiums and exhibitions are arranged all over to spread the message of clean and clear environment for better living.Healthy earth is necessary for healthy living. The activities which spoil the peaceful life on earth are increasing day by day. Today everywhere we can see pollution, deforestation, soil mining and other harmful activities. The output of these activities will be earthquake, flood and other natural disasters.
So the time has reached to join the hands and work for the good of earth. Some countries celebrate the entire week as earth week and arrange a wide variety of programs. Schools and colleges also participate in the celebrations by organizing essay competitions, paper presentations and rallies.
