“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” — Yoko Ono
Each year, on April 22, people across the globe join together to raise awareness about environmental stewardship, biodiversity and climate change issues facing our planet. This global event is known as Earth day. Earth Day was first celebrated in the United States on April 22, 1970. Today the movement has expanded to 193 countries with an estimated more than one-billion people taking part in Earth Day activities.
The theme for Earth Day 2023 is “Invest in our Planet”. On Earth Day, April 22, Sadhguru draws on the wisdom of the yogic sciences to remind us to connect to the Earth – this can lead to greater health & wellbeing and help us hasten our personal growth.
This Earth Day Join the “Save Soil” Movement
The Save Soil global movement is initiated by Sadhguru – a yogi, mystic and visionary.”
Why Save Soil?
A journey to help save the soil on Mother Gaia, Sadhguru launched Save Soil to address the immediate soil crisis. Save Soil unites people from around the world to stand up for Soil Health – supporting leaders of all nations to institute national policies and actions toward increasing the organic content in cultivable land and soil.
Whole Earth Festival
The Whole Earth Festival is an annual event that takes place on Mother’s Day Weekend on the University of California Davis Quad. Approximate attendance at the festival is upwards of 30,000 people for this three-day event (Friday, Sat. and Sunday).
The Whole Earth Festival brings together music, vegetarian food, healing technology and holistic education for an immersive and interactive festival experience. The event is planned and coordinated by volunteer staff – primarily, UC Davis students with support from the Davis community.
The Whole Earth Festival experiential space is designed with the festival attendee in mind. Each year’s showcase is completely unique, ranging from interactive speakers, music, art, and more. Each year, an Experiential Space Coordinator personally designs this interactive experience – inviting festival goers to come and participate in what this experience has to offer.
