Earth Day Message from Carpathian Adventure

Earth Day was first proposed by activist John McConnell in 1969 and was introduced to the world in 1970. 51 years on we have utterly decimated the planet but still hold environmentally-friendly activities on Earth Day. It’s like having a Save The Wildlife Day once per year and then hunting every species to extinction for the other 364. Oh, wait…. we do that.
In this video I explain the need – especially during the pandemic – for people to reconnect with Nature and Mother Earth, and give some suggestions on how to do so. I live with Nature every day, in a rural cottage in the Carpathian Mountains, surrounded by wildlife and forested hills, yet I am still extremely grateful every day for such a privilege. My hope is that those living in cities and urban environments can spend time in the country, even move away from the city, and get back to their roots – understand and feel how their ancestors did. We have become separated from our natural selves and it would be extremely healthy – both mentally and physically for us to experience the beauty of the wilds once more. And it would also be healthy for Mother Nature and Planet Earth, Gaia, as we as humans would be less likely to continue damaging Her if we really understood how much we need Her

My name is Edward O'Toole and I live in one of the wildest, most beautiful parts of Europe, in the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Slovakia. Life is an adventure - both physically and metaphysically... I've been living out here for the last 22 years, along with my wife, 3 kids and Jack Russell. My main interests involve bushcraft, prepping, survival and wilderness living (self-sufficiency and self-reliance), ecological, green, smart and natural solutions, motorcycles and motorbike club life, writing and art (I have 7 published books), and exploring the paranormal.
