World Environment Day which is held on 5th June every year is an important day in the calendar of the United Nations. It is one of the ways the United Nations uses to advocate for environmental protection and call for political action.
Every year, UNEP (the Environment Program of the United Nations) develops a theme which is used globally to raise awareness and call for support from governments, organizations, and individuals from all over the world.
The theme for 2015 was “Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care”. This would also serve as the slogan for the World Environmental Day 2015. The meaning of this theme and slogan is that we have five continents with more than seven billion people combined. Although we have about 7 billion people, we just have one planet that we live and survive. The surface area is limited, shelter and food also limited. If we continue using the available natural resources as we do today, our future generations may be forced to go hungry and without homes. This is why it is of vital importance to consume whatever food that is available with care. Stop the wastage and use whatever resource that is available according to need, not greed.
“Join the race to make the world a better place” is the theme and slogan for 2016 UN World Environment Day. This slogan carries a clear message and asks everyone to get involved in making the world a better place to live in.
Celebrities and media personalities have encouraged and put a lot of emphasis on the UN World Environment Day. Well-known celebrities such as Gisele Bündchen are known to have to send distress calls to the entire world to come forward, join the team and help fight climate change. Radio and print journalists have also helped in creating awareness campaigns and asking people from all over the world to observe this day and act accordingly.
New Zealand where this day is marked by splendid and colourful ceremonies launched a massive campaign that was called “My Earth, My Duty”. More people could be encouraged to get out of their homes and provide help that is aimed at ensuring that the environment is preserved for the future generations. This has been one of the most successful campaigns to mark World Environment Day 2015.
In some parts of the world, children are a critical part of celebrating the United Nations Environment Day. In the Nepal Republic, for instance, children and students from grade 1 are requested to attend and actively engage in forestry and related programs in their locality. Also, there are many competitions that are organized by the government and at the end of the week for commemorating the World Environment Day, rewards are offered to those offered the most to the program.
