A number of countries consider Mother Earth as the source of all life and nourishment. Cultures and religions from different part of the world honour the Earth at highest esteem. Mother Earth is a common expression for the planet earth, which reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit. United Nation designated 22nd April as International Mother Earth Day. Since 2009 all the member states of United Nation are celebrating the day to advance the relationship of nature and the earth.
Last year on 22nd April 2013, United Nation General Assembly hold an interactive diologue to commemorate International Mother Earth Day and discussed different economic approaches in the context of sustainable development to explore a more ethical basis for the relationship between humanity and earth. It is proposed to hold a regular and interactive dialogue during the forthcoming International Mother Earth Day on 22nd April 2014, to advance discussions on Harmony with Nature in order to promote a balanced integration of the economic social and environmental dimension of sustainable development.
