All over the world, let us celebrate Nature!

Today, we’re celebrating the day of Finnish nature for the second time, ever! I’m travelling at the moment (indeed, I am in Finland!), so this post is done in a bit of a haste. Despite this, I want to make a post because I very much like the idea of a day for nature, since there are days for so many other important concepts. This is what I wrote last year:
It’s a day for appreciation and maybe a bit of reflection, too – what does nature mean to us, and why are we destroying it? I also hope this day will raise awareness of the natural catastrophes that take place in Finland every year, caused both by companies and individuals. Money comes first far too often.
Days for this and that might not have a direct impact on anything, but I think it’s a good opportunity to nudge people…
