Established in 1970 and now observed by more than one billion people across more than 190 countries, World Earth Day presents an opportunity to demonstrate support for environmental responsibility and sustainability.
The 2020 celebration that took place on 22 April, marked the 50th anniversary of this unified response to environmental concerns, with the theme of Earth Day 2020 being climate action. Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable.
As the ninth most visited tourist destination in the world, Thailand welcomes more than 39 million visitors per annum of which over 500,000 come from the MENA region.
