50 years ago, today started a movement. Now, you take that fight forward. How – through music, conversations and inspiration.
Happy 50 years of Earth Day! In the late 1960s, US senator from Wisconsin Gaylord Nelson witnessed up close an oil spill and was horrified by what it did to the marine ecosystem. But no one else was bothered. This was a time when environment conservation was an alien concept and air pollution was considered, ‘the scent of prosperity.’
Nelson and his team fought hard to create the first-ever Earth Day. It was born on 22nd April 1970 and along with it, the modern environmental movement. Nelson is long gone, but stewards of Earth are not.
We have Jane Goodall and Greta Thunberg. We have George Monbiot and Marina Silva. We have you and me. Together we come forward to celebrate this pale blue dot we call home and the rich full lives we lead on it. Here’s what we have in store for you.

Create A Buzz
The world has gone topsy-turvy, hasn’t it?
What’s a positive outcome of this coronapocalypse that you’ve observed? How can we hold onto it even when the world has returned to normal and clean air and chirping birds give way to a sooty atmosphere and traffic jams?
We need to know your answers. We’re depending on it. Write it or record a video.
Buzz On Earth was born because of a dream. We, at team Buzz On Earth, dream of living in harmony with nature, industries following circular design and protecting resources and little children learning to farm and composting as they do history and algebra. The first fifty years of Earth Day passed us by. The next 50 are crucial. It will determine the survival of our species. We need all hands on deck. We need all the dreamers out there to act. We’re doing our best and we need you to join us.
