BUENOS AIRES, Argentina—April 22 marked Earth Day 2022, which bore a theme of “Invest in Our Planet.” In Argentina, various social and political groups, advocacy organizations, indigenous communities, and individuals mobilized to protest for better environmental protections and actions from the government.

Recent environmental issues and concerns in the country include extreme weather events, such as increased wildfires and flooding; large-scale mining activities by international companies that are causing pollution and water scarcity for indigenous communities; and long-delayed approval of the Wetlands Law, which would “regulate, protect and conserve” Argentina’s biodiverse wetlands.
