So What Are You Going to Do
for World Environment Day?
World Environment Day is an annual, international event that falls on the fifth day of June that involves anyone and everyone from anywhere. The celebration promotes worldwide awareness of the environment and encourages political attention and action.
Other than Earth Day, World Environment Day is known for being the biggest, and most widely celebrated global day for positive environmental action. It began in 1972 and has widely grown since. The United Nation Environment Program personalizes environmental issues while enabling people to realize not only their responsibility, but their power to become agents for change in support of sustainable and equitable development.
Through World Environment Day, people can come together to ensure a cleaner, brighter and greener outlook for themselves and future generations.
So, how do you take immediate action? We rely on anyone and everyone to make this happen. You have numerous options to participate in. Organize a neighborhood clean-up, get your community or yourself to stop using plastic bags, plant a tree, walk to work, start a recycling drive, cut your shower time in half, and the list of activities doesn’t end!
Whatever activities you decide to participate in, let us know here: www.unep.org/wed/aroundtheworld/. We will post your activities on our website to share and inspire others!
