Background

World Environment Day is held each year on June 5. It is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations (UN) stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action. It is the biggest annual event for positive environmental action for the Earth i.e. for taking care of biodiversity, natural resources, water, food & air, and much more.

World Environment Day was established in 1972 during the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, which led to the creation of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Its aim is “encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment”. Since its inception, WED has developed into a global platform for public outreach to raise awareness and taking action and it is celebrated in over 100 countries. Every World Environment Day has a different global host country, where the official celebrations take place and every year a new theme is selected and global actions implore upon the same.

Objectives of the world environment day campaign are mentioned below:

  • It is celebrated to make aware the common public about the environmental issues.
  • Encourage common people from different society and communities to actively participate in the celebration as well as become an active agent in developing environmental safety measures.
  • Let them know that community people are very essential to inhibit negative changes towards the environmental issues.
  • Encourage people to make their nearby surroundings safe and clean to enjoy safer, cleaner and more prosperous future.
