World Environment Day

World Environment Day is celebrated each year on June 5 to stimulate worldwide awareness of the environment and enhance political attention and action. World Environment Day is a people’s event with colorful activities such as street rallies and green concerts. The day’s agenda is to give a human face to environmental issues and empower people to become active agents of sustainable development. The theme for World Environment Day in 2012 was the Green Economy which is defined as improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. A green economy can be thought of as one which is low carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive.
