In 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco, peace activist John McConnell proposed a day to honor the Earth and the concept of peace, to be celebrated on 21 March 1970, the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. A month later a separate Earth Day was founded by United States Senator, Gaylord Nelson, at an environmental teach-in held on April 22, 1970. Earth Day 1970 capitalized on the emerging consciousness, channeling the energy of the anti-war protest movement and putting environmental concerns front and center, see Earth Day: The History of a Movement.
DOVER on SEA B&B: “Magnificent views, friendly hosts, delicious food and great ethics. We stayed at Dover-on-Sea as part of our honeymoon as a key place due to its ethics and loved it here and fully recommend it. We are hoping to return. Genuinely fantastic people and beautiful relaxing place.” – Zoe | 09/07/2018
