0


World Environment Day, celebrated annually on June 5, is the United Nations’ main tool for promoting awareness and action for environmental protection.

World Environment Day has become a global platform for public awareness, with more than 143 countries participating each year. First organized in 1974, it has been a major campaign for environmental issues ranging from marine pollution to human proliferation and awareness of global warming, sustainable consumption and wildlife crime.

Each year, a different country hosts the day. This year, Pakistan announced that it will host World Environment Day 2021 in partnership with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). The celebration of World Environment Day this year will be themed “restoring ecosystems” and will focus on resetting our relationship with nature. It will also mark the official launch of the United Nations Decade for Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030.

World Environment Day 2021 is widely celebrated in more than 150 countries. It is popularly called “People’s Day” to show their care and support for the Earth and its environment.

World Environment Day can be celebrated in several ways; raising awareness among locals about increasing environmental conditions and suggesting ways to prevent them, organizing plays, quizzes, tree plantings, lectures and a children’s poster contest are very popular on this day.

World Environment Day urges all of us to protect our natural environment. Why? Because an estimated 7 million people die each year from air pollution-related causes, the majority occurring in the Asia-Pacific region. This day encourages global activism. It means everything from waste to climate change. World Environment Day is both a global celebration and a platform for public awareness.

China, which now owns half of the world’s electric vehicles and 99% of the world’s electric buses, hosted the 2019 event. “The country has shown tremendous leadership in tackling air pollution at the national level. UN Environment Acting Director Joyce Msuya told NationalToday.com. “It can now help inspire the world to do more. “

The day has been embraced by people all over the world, so much so that it is even slowly creeping into pop culture. Celebrities around the world are encouraging all people, in their own way, to do their part and “save the world”. Fan favorites Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl Streep are just a few of the many who are constantly talking about environmental awareness.

So it doesn’t matter if you are a famous actor, athlete or college student: gather your friends and spend a day outdoors doing fun activities to preserve this beautiful planet.
