Your planet needs you – Consume with Care – Celebrate Nature
World Environment Day first held in 1972, by the UN General Assembly has given a human face to environmental issues. In 1974, two years later the first World Environment Day was held with the theme "Only One Earth". WED became a worldwide platform for community outreach in raising awareness on environmental issues among the inhabitants of earth. World Environment Day is for everyone, everywhere, to appreciate and explore nature. Each year, World Environment Day has a new subject that major establishments, NGOs, companies, governments, communities, and celebrities worldwide adopt to support environmental causes. This year the host nation is Canada and the World Environment Day theme for 2017 is 'Connecting People to Nature – in the city and on the land, from the poles to the equator'.
Whether you’re a school child, a citizen, a government, or a corporate, there are World Environment Day ideas for everyone. Celebrations of WED include thousands of outdoor events such as treks, picnics, walking in your local park, neighbor-hood clean-ups, planting trees, organizing a litter picking outing, snapping beautiful pictures of the exceptional outdoors and sharing them online etc. Did something nice to protect the environment?
