Our planet is a marvellous, vibrant living entity that supports a rich diversity of life. Every day of the year is an opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the natural world. Here's an Eco Calendar for 2023 with a variety of environmental and sustainability events to mark in your schedule.

January: Kickoff with Nature

Begin the year by honoring Greta Thunberg's birthday on January 3rd. This young environmental activist has inspired millions with her courage and dedication to climate change awareness. Following that, January 5th marks National Bird Day—a perfect excuse to observe the avian wonders in your surroundings. And let's not forget Dian Fossey's Birthday on January 16th, paying tribute to her pioneering work in gorilla conservation.
