2021 has some fun things coming!

Did you know there are things to look forward to in 2021?

Here are a couple to mark on your calendar,

-The Tokyo Olympics: After being postponed in 2020, they are now scheduled to begin this July. (And remember: New events include skateboarding and surfing!)

-3 Missions to Mars: In 2020, China, the UAE, and NASA all launched Mars missions, all of which are expected to arrive at the Red Planet next month. 2021 will likely be the year of new discoveries on Mars.

-UEFA Euro Championship: The 60th anniversary of the tournament was supposed to be held in 2020, but it was postponed to this year. Instead of one host region, the games will take place in 12 host countries around Europe.

-New climate policies and action: Many climate plans were back-burnered last year due to the pandemic. Now, China has pledged to go carbon neutral by 2060. Japan, South Korea and Canada have all made similar promises. And we may see more positive news at the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow this November.

New TV shows and movies: The “Friends” reunion is set for March. A “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” reboot will arrive, and the movies “Cinderella”, “No Time to Die” and Black Widow are all set to be released. Plus, a new “Coming to America”, a new “Fantastic Beasts” and a new “Dune” with Timothee Chalamet.
