World Environment Day is June 5


World Environment Day is designated and organised by UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme).

The UNEP website explains, “World Environment Day is an annual event  that is aimed at being the biggest and most widely celebrated global day  for positive environmental action. World Environment Day activities take place all year round but  climax on 5 June every year, involving everyone from everywhere.”

“World Environment Day celebration began in 1972 and has grown to  become the one of the main vehicles through which the UN stimulates worldwide  awareness of the environment and encourages political attention and action.”

This year’s WED theme is “Green Economy: Does it Include You?”
