The day's agenda is to give a human face to environmental issues; empower people to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development; promote an understanding that communities are pivotal to changing attitudes towards environmental issues; and advocate partnership, which will ensure all nations and peoples enjoy a safer and more prosperous future. Leaders often deliver statements and commit themselves to care for the Earth on this day with serious pledges of permanent resource commitment.

"We are born into this world with limitless potential, unbridled creativity and the capacity to love without measure. Long before our first breath we are a part of something grand and have an infinite array of options before us. Not only is our birth a miracle of amazing proportions, we continue to develop throughout life from that first cell with every option, path and possibility built right in. Who and what we become is up to the choices we make over the span of our lifetime. The beauty of life is that we can always change our perspective. We are free to choose what we wish to believe, and with courage, we can chart our own course in life. It is true that many different ideas, circumstances and conditions can influence what direction we go in, yet none of them are absolute determiners of our journey we are. Many may attempt to dictate what we should think and feel in the present moment or suggest their limited notions for our future. We know in the quiet recess of our inner sanctuary what we wish to create for ourselves. Our incredible potential is in our ability to imagine a variety of different realities and our corresponding willpower to make them manifest for us. It is our personal thoughts and feelings that we need to pay attention to, not just our outer reality. Going within and connecting to our love and wisdom is how we learn to trust and believe in ourselves and our ability to create our dreams. It is our freedom to love that can never be taken away from us. In each breath we begin again. Every moment we are capable of a new thought, a fresh feeling of joy and a world filled with opportunities that know no limit or bounds. These are the same choices we wish for everyone else as we understand the universal nature of our eternal bond with one another. We know we are but a cell in the body of humanity with the potential to fulfill a collective dream too. What we dream for ourselves we dream for our world. Never underestimate your brilliance to make this a better world for yourself and all of us around you."

"It's an idea that most of us would rather not face -- that within the next century, life as we know it could come to an end. Our civilization could crumble, leaving only traces of modern human existence behind. It seems outlandish, extreme -- even impossible. But according to cutting edge scientific research, it is a very real possibility. And unless we make drastic changes now, it could very well happen. Experts have a stark warning: that unless we change course, the "perfect storm" of population growth, dwindling resources and climate change has the potential to converge in the next century with catastrophic results. Watch "Earth 2100," a two-hour television event, Tuesday, June 2, at 9 p.m. ET. In order to plan for the worst, we must anticipate it. In that spirit, guided by some of the world's experts, ABC News' "Earth 2100," hosted by Bob Woodruff, will journey through the next century and explore what might be our worst-case scenario."

"According to the plans drawn up after the Earth Concert, the combined efforts of all humanity are in the process of restoring to health Gaia, the planetary organism, badly mistreated by more than a century of blind industrialization and uncontrolled development. At last, we are beginning to see everywhere the results of all the efforts exerted to repair the incalculable damage inflicted on the forests, the lakes and rivers, the oceans and, in general, on all that lives on this Earth. We have come a long way. Humanity could never have imagined at the end of the twentieth century the scope of the disaster that was happening before their very eyes without their fully realizing what was going on. Oh! Of course, many cries of alarm had been raised about the encroaching deserts, the toxic, nuclear and acid pollution of the entire environment, the destruction of the protective ozone layer, the accelerated extinction of plant and animal species—in short, the erosion of all that enables Life to exist and thrive. But it was only relatively late that we realized that it was above all the combined effect of all these apparently isolated crises that was wreaking the most devastating consequences on the biosphere. It was the very survival of all Life on Earth that was in danger... Fortunately, it was not too late... But how near we came to losing everything!... No doubt, such a common threat affecting everybody without exception was the only way to awaken the consciousness of humanity and unite all human beings in a single common goal transcending all selfish and nationalistic interests. No doubt, in a way we needed to have our backs to the wall before we finally understood that we are all united in the same great and wonderful adventure of Life on "spaceship Earth", in the words of the late Buckminster Fuller... No doubt! However, what I am sure of now is that all the ceaseless efforts of thousands of volunteer organizations in all spheres of human activity have also played a crucial role in the success we have achieved today."
