World Environment Day 2020
Colombia to host 2020 World Environment Day on biodiversity
World Environment Day is the biggest annual event for positive environmental action and takes place every 5 June. Since it began in 1972, global citizens have organized many thousands of events, from neighborhood clean-ups, to action against wildlife crime, to replanting forests. This year’s theme invites you 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.
The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature. Yet, these are exceptional times in which nature is sending us a message. Nature is showing that we are on the verge of a breakdown. It’s time to wake up. To take notice. To re-imagine our relationship with nature. It’s time to raise our voices to tell the world that we need action now.
This World Environment Day, it’s Time for Nature.
