World Environment Day

Every year 5th June is celebrated as World Environment Day (WED). This is the initiative of United Nations Environmental Programme. This day stimulates the global awareness of the environment and promotes positive actions to save the planet Earth.

The theme of the WED of 2015 is “Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care.” This theme underlines on the sustainable use of the resources to ensure a healthy future. Many of the resources are at the verge of depletion as people are consuming the natural resources at a faster rate than what the planet can sustainably provide. This situation demands the responsible use of resources to ensure the well-being of humanity and the environment.
