February is the month of love, of Valentine’s Day. The day before Valentine’s Day is World Radio Day and a week after Valentine’s Day is International Mother Language Day. Thanks, moms! February commemorates the Waitangi Treaty, first Sámi congress, the Jokkmokk Winter Market, the RAMSAR convention, and the Mexican constitution. In the USA: Superbowl, Super Recycle, and a month-long reflection on Black History.

Birthdays include Charles Darwin, George Washington, and Bob Marley, whose circles around the sun were musical earthstrongs. Our Marley Party takes place February 6.

Planeta.com kicks off the new year in February by hosting our annual Responsible Travel Week Conference which wraps around Valentine’s Day (Monday-Sunday). Everyone is invited.
