Connect with Nature this World Environment Day
Are you celebrating World Environment Day today? Did you even know it was World Environment Day today? We should really be appreciating the environment everyday, and I know that most of our readers will strive to do just that, through their lifestyle, purchases and daily activities.
What is World Environment Day?
The United Nations started celebrating World Environment Day in 1974 to raise awareness around the world for the protection of the environment. It has since become a global platform for public outreach and is observed in over 100 countries.
Each year there is a different theme associated with World Environment Day focussing on a pressing environmental concern. This year the theme is connecting people to nature, and the host country is Canada. Focussing on a host country helps to highlight the environmental challenges it faces and supports the effort to address them.
