As part of month long Earth Day Celebration and Sustainability, we wanted to kick of the series with three important lessons that we, MIIM Designs, has learned and committed too. Creating a sustainable culture.
Part of what made the first Earth Day so successful was how its founders incorporated the tactics, priorities, and passions of the anti-war movement of the 1960s and rallied these civil rights and anti-war activists to the environmental campaign. An estimated 20 million people participated in the first Earth Day in the United States on April 22, 1970. The day helped change the national agenda, and proved that people in the United States had a deep concern for the state of the environment, and in some ways launched the modern, international environmental movement.
The first Earth Day prompted the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which enjoyed broad political support in Congress in its early years, and the passage of the Clean Air Act, as well as several other enduring pieces of legislation in the years that followed.
Over the course of 3 years, MIIM Designs as part of the UN Sustainable Development has been on the forefront of developing some tactics in ensuring that each project incorporates Environmental Sustainability. Here are some of the agendas that we are deeply passionate about:
1. Integrate the principles of sustainable development into design programs and reverse the loss of environmental resources
2. Reduce biodiversity loss.
