On 22nd of April we celebrate Earth Day and Restore Our Earth is this year's theme. On this occasion, here’s a song worthy of listening to. The song is from “The Rain” band, dedicated to inspire everyone to fight the climate crisis and take action on many fronts to protect our planet. The Rain band comprises four members: Indra Prasta (vocal, guitar), Iwan Tanda (guitar), Ipul Bahri (bass) and Aang Anggoro (drum). The Rain band performed this song for the first time in 2019 at the EU Climate Diplomacy Week.


Today for Our Tomorrow



Hoy saludamos la entrada en vigor del nuevo Acuerdo Regional sobre el Acceso a la Información, la Participación Pública y el Acceso a la Justicia en Asuntos Ambientales negociado por todos los treinta y tres países de América Latina y del Caribe. En un momento donde el multilateralismo está sujeto a críticas y donde vuelven a levantar las cabezas los fantasmas del nacionalismo es una señal esperanzadora que treinta y tres países se federen en nombre de la protección del medio ambiente y de sus defensores.


Today we welcome the entry into force of the new Regional Agreement on Access to Information, Public Participation and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters negotiated by all thirty-three countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. At a time when multilateralism is subject to criticism and where the ghosts of nationalism raise their heads again, it is a hopeful sign that thirty-three countries are federating in the name of protecting the environment and its defenders.
