World Environment Day is the United Nations day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment. Since it began in 1974, the event has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.The theme for World Environment Day 2020 is, 'Time for Nature,' with a focus on its role in providing the essential infrastructure that supports life on Earth and human development.
Just think about this tomorrow, World Environment Day, June 5th, 2020. Don't be distracted by what or where you are and consider who you really are, what this life really means. We are one great consciousness and we are all responsible for tomorrow, like it or not. We are all in this together, in an intricately connected web of life. This is what this viciously confused reality right now is saying. Look at the diversity of the global crowds that have risen in our streets, the unity of their message and it's haunting familiarity. Let our shared hope not be wasted on empty rhetoric this time. What we fail to resolve we are cursed to relive. Spirit and vision, Once more Lads and Lassies into the breach.
World Environment Day is celebrated every year on June 5, to remind people to not take nature for granted, and to read the signs, understand them, and act accordingly to protect the earth’ environment. By doing so, humans must realise that they are securing their own future and the future of the coming generations. It is one of the biggest annual events in the world run by the United Nations to raise awareness amongst humans. It is believed that the day was designed by the UN General Assembly in the year 1972, on the first day of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment. With all of us fighting COVID -19, a fierce pandemic that the modern times have known together, as most countries observed lockdown, earth’s environment may have benefitted slightly. Rightfully, when human activity got restricted, nature seems to have been busy reclaiming its spaces. Humans are breathing fresh air after such a long time. But Nature, among other things, it is getting to breathe and cleanse itself a bit. Humans must rethink their ways. It is time to realise that we need to continue to protect earth’s environment by changing our life style, by changing the way we work, we consume, we treat each other and the earth’s resources. There is no room for complacency; time is running out very fast. We need to do whatever we can to save the precious environment, the biosphere that sustains all life.
We need Sunshine for Food, pristine Water to drink, clear Air and beautiful Weather to enjoy healthy Life and all this comes from Nature.
Nature is sending signals to us, time to take or Nature for ours and all other species on the Earth, Nature doesn't need us but we need Nature.
It’s time to wake up and protect our Nature, for our well-being, learn to co-exist with all beings peacefully. For Palm-oil we are driving Orang-utans homeless, for railway lines and roads clearing forests, and mining too taking its toll on our forest, polluting the Nature carelessly, it’s time to build better people and better action before its loo late take environmental friendly action.
