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 and climax on 5 June every year, involving everyone from everywhere.
World Environment Day is also a day for people from all walks of life to come together to ensure a cleaner, greener and brighter outlook for themselves and future generations.
The World Environment Day celebration began in 1972 and has grown to become one of the main vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and encourages political attention and action.
