World Environment Day – June 5th
"Connecting People to Nature"

The theme for World Environment Day 2017, implores us to get outdoors and into nature, to appreciate its beauty and its importance, and to take forward the call to protect the Earth that we share. This year’s theme invites us to think about how we are part of nature and how intimately we depend on it. It challenges us to find fun and exciting ways to experience and cherish this vital relationship. World Environment Day is the opportunity for everyone to realize the responsibility to care for the Earth and to become agents of change by focusing on the forest management, reducing greenhouse effects, promoting bio-fuels production, by planting on degraded lands, use of hydro-power to enhance electricity production, encourage common public to use solar water heaters, energy production through solar sources, developing new drainage systems, promoting coral reefs and mangroves restoration in order to get prevented from flooding and erosion. Some of the objectives of the world environment day campaign are mentioned below:

It is celebrated to make aware the common public about the environmental issues.

Encourage common people from different society and communities to actively participate in the celebration as well as become an active agent in developing environmental safety measures.

Let them know that community people are very essential to inhibit negative changes towards the environmental issues.

Encourage people to make their nearby surroundings safe and clean to enjoy safer, cleaner and more prosperous future.

The condition of our environment is getting declined day by day because of the pollution and global warming. We should celebrate and promote eco-friendly development in our country in order to save the environment for better future.
