Earth Day 2016 Celebration in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Earth Day Celebrations 

In case Google’s home page –featuring an earthy forest design — didn’t tip you off, today is Earth Day! It’s the one day of the year where we’re reminded to think about our impact on the environment and educate ourselves on sustainability, and Buenos Aires is taking note. The city will be celebrating its annual “El Dia de Tierra” in style on Saturday with activities all throughout the day, from live musical performances to “eco conferencias” on sustainability, to arts and crafts for toddlers.

The live musical performances will feature local artists such as “Falsos Profetas,” “Aztecas Tupro,” and a host of other indie rock and eclectic artists. The earliest set starts at 1:20 P.M. and artists will be performing all throughout the evening until 11:20 P.M.

The Earth Day celebration agenda also includes plenty of activities for families and children, such as musical performances, juggling acts, and face-painting.
Skiing in Bariloche is a fantastic way to relax and take a break when you're learning Spanish in Argentina.

The Centro de Educación Ambiental will also be sponsoring workshops that promote greater awareness of the environment and the value of our natural resources. The eccentric workshops range from sessions on dying wool with vegetable products and traditional methods, or how to create a wallet from leftover cardboard!

For even more explicitly environment-related activities, you can attend one of the eco talks focusing on the current projects and objectives of local NGOs. Topics include environmental education and investment in sustainable energy sources, as well as more Argentina-specific projects like saving native forests in Argentina from deforestation.
