Every year on April 22, more than one billion people around the world celebrates Earth Day, to demonstrate support and raise awareness in protecting our planet’s environment. Taking part doesn’t require a lot of effort. Picking up litter, turning off the lights, or spreading the message – a small contribution from each and every one of us will accumulate into great strength and create a lasting impact.

The theme for Earth Day 2022 is “Invest In Our Planet“. Investing in our planet is not just about money. As individuals, our voices, actions, and interactions for a healthy planet will pay off. What each of us does, and how we do it, has a huge ripple effect on our ecosystems, and on the pace of corporate and government action.

Share with us your ideas of investing in our planet: what can you do? what have you done? We invite you to unleash your creativity to share with us your answer to these questions through writingartphotographyvideography or any type of creative media. We will match your efforts by pledging to plant 30 trees at locations across the Pacific Rim for each submission received. Selected entries will be featured on the VSE website, social media and email newsletters that could be seen by thousands of students and education professionals across the Pacific Rim. Three best entries will be selected and will be each awarded with an Amazon Kindle e-book reader.

Submit your entries by April 30 and turn your creativity into meaningful action to invest in our planet!
