Ladies and gentlemen...
Yesterday, 22nd of April, it was..THE EARTH DAY!
We celebrated it at the Science lesson talking about the real Afrika size.
Africa is too often the forgotten continent, but it shouldn't be, and humanitarian problems should make us forget environmental issues because both go hand in hand. The degradation of the environment will affect the most vulnerable people there.
Africa is big. But did you realize exactly how big? Africa is bigger than China, India, Europe, and the USA COMBINED!
Did you know that the size of this continent on world maps and globes is not the real one?
Don't Overlook Africa!
Because of the way flat maps distort the size of countries most people don't really know just how big the African continent is. This leads many people to underestimate Africa's importance.
As you can see the geographical truth of the continent is much more vast.
“It contains the entirety of the USA, all of China, India, as well as Japan and pretty much all of Europe as well — all combined!”
And now, here you are a beautiful video about our AMAZING PLANET.
Let´s protect the Environment for a better future!
Happy Earth day!
