June 5, United Nations World Environment Day





Small Changes Make a Big Difference

World Environment Day (WED) is a day that stimulates awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and public action. It was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972. World Environment Day is hosted every year by a different city with a different theme.

Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme that focuses attention on a particularly pressing environmental concern. The theme for 2022...

Only One Earth - In harmony with nature, or A single earth - to live sustainably in harmony with nature. The theme highlights the importance of living sustainably in harmony with nature and opportunities to switch to cleaner, greener lifestyles.

WED Mission: To provide leadership and encourage partnership in caring for the environment by inspiring, informing, and enabling nations and peoples to improve their quality of life without compromising that of future generations.

"Remember it is people that propel social progress, develop science and technology, and, through their hard work, continuously transform the human environment. We are both creature and moulder of our environment."

These words are spoken directly from the 1972 Declaration on the Human Environment, which was adopted by the #UnitedNations Conference on the Human Environment, Stockholm, 16 June 1972.
