World Environment Day

11:00 PM

World Environment Day ('WED') is celebrated every year on 5th June to raise global awareness of the need to take positive environmental action. It is run by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Each year, World Environment Day is hosted in a different city with a different theme for one week that kicks off on June 5. A World Environment Day theme is selected along with an Environment Day slogan, which aims to emphasize the importance of protecting our planet and promote an understanding that they each individually can play a significant and effective role in tackling environmental issues. 

The theme for this year’s world environment day is ‘‘THINK, EAT, SAVE’’. The extension to this is REDUCE YOUR FOOT PRINT. The theme mainly talks about Anti-food waste and about the growing population of the world. We eat food and the left overs we throw away. That thrown away food could feed a person or two. There is another way to think through this, if we limit our consumption to our needs, it saves money. Let’s think about our future generation. Every grain that you throw away spills blood of a child.
Our school is celebrating the day by cleaning the town in the afternoon.
