Celebrate WED 2013

World Environment Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly to mark the opening of the 1972 Stockholm Conference

Environmental Protection Organization is celebrating World Environment Day from the past 3 years and gathering a lot of appreciation

Celebrating World Environment Day is about the inspirational power of individual actions that collectively become an exponential force for positive change.

Past World Environment Day thematic celebrations included caring for the forests, the ozone layer, desertification and sustainable development, to mention a few.

World Environment Day is celebrated around the world in many ways, including street rallies, bicycle parades, green concerts, essay and poster competitions in schools, tree planting, recycling efforts, clean-up campaigns and much more.

Why celebrate World Environment Day?

When we see or experience the negative effects of climate change and environmental degradation, it is easy to blame others - governments for not prioritizing environmental policy; corporate organizations for raising greenhouse gas emissions; NGOs for not lobbying strongly enough for the environment; and individuals for not taking action. World Environment Day however is a day we put aside our differences and instead celebrate achievements made towards protecting the environment.

By celebrating World Environment Day, we remind ourselves and others of the importance of caring for our environment. Remember that every action counts, so join us: every year, everywhere, everyone!
