Why we celebrate World Environment Day?

All living beings on the Earth, including humans, need clean air, water, and healthy food. But due to the anthropogenic activity, these resources dwindle with each year. Industrial waste pollutes rivers and oceans. Deforestation does not only lead to losing the source of oxygen production but also deprives animals of their homes. Our activities violate the ecosystem, and its scale has reached such proportions that now, we are one step away from an ecological disaster. Humankind is threatened by global warming, and, hence, hunger and disease. In order to inform people about the potential disaster and draw their attention to this problem, World Environment Day was created.

The UN General Assembly introduced World Environment Day in December 1972. The official celebration began on June 5, the day of the Stockholm Conference, which addressed the problems of the human environment. This date is celebrated every year around the world.

What Do People Do?

In order to involve the public in environmental issues, states are developing various programs and organizations. This is how the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) was created. The organization’s activities are aimed at restoring the environment, and under their leadership, public events around the world are held annually on Environment Day. For such events, a theme, motto, and venue are chosen. In 2020, Colombia hosted an event themed “Time for Nature”. In 2021, Pakistan held an event called “Restoration of Ecosystems”. Also, in 2021, a large-scale program “The United Nations Decade of Ecosystem Restoration” began. Its goal is to stop nature destruction and restore ecosystems by 2030.

How to Celebrate World Environment Day?

Join UNEP and other similar environmental programs to celebrate World Environment Day. In some countries, instead of a working day, people organize events to clean up and beautify the areas where they study or work. This date is celebrated all over the world.
