Today leaders from 160 countries will officially sign the Paris Climate Agreement on Earth Day 2016.
The deal was thrashed out in Paris last December in order to stem global warming.
The signing makes this year’s Earth Day one of the most important in years, and the organisers will be attempting to build on the momentum created by last year’s Paris Climate Summit.
“Earth Day is the largest, most recognizable face of the environmental movement,” said Kathleen Rogers, president of the Earth Day Network.
During the Paris talks world leaders agreed to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius, with developed countries providing $100 billion of public and private finance to help developing countries by 2020.
The organizers behind Earth Day, which occurs annually on April 22, are hoping to use the 2016 celebration to plant 7.8 billion trees, divest from fossil fuels and make cities 100 per cent renewable.
“Let’s take the momentum from here and build on it. Let’s start now. And let’s not stop.”
Activities associated with the day often include planting trees, raising awareness about recycling, volunteering for green projects, and reducing the amount of energy people consume.
Earth Day is supported by a host of celebrities, including Oscar Winner Leonardo Di Caprio, Emma Watson, Miley Cyrus and Matt Damon.
