World Environmental Day 2017

World Environmental Day 2017

Since 1974, every year on the 5th of June marks World Environment Day (WED), implemented by the UN to raise worldwide awareness on environmental issues and what we can do to protect our environment. This is the day to actually do something about it and not just think and talk about it.

It has become the biggest global environmental outreach programme with over 143 countries partaking annually in it, with every year having a new theme to it, of pressing issues that are to be advocated by all NGO’s and governments, from organising things such as picking up litter in parks, cleaning up neighbourhoods and even planting trees.

WED is a day to show that everyone young or old, can make a difference if they truly attempt to, as it is our responsibility to make a better future for our children and future generations. WED has a spacific theme each year and this year’s theme is ‘connecting people with nature.’ This is to encourage people to spend more time outside and take advantage of the planet’s beauty. Canada is this year’s host country, which will be the centre of World Environment Day activities, the host country also picks the theme.
