WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY 2022: This year’s theme of World Environment Day calls for collective, transformative action on a global scale to celebrate, protect and restore our planet.
The first World Environment Day was held in 1973 and since then it is being observed every year on June 5. The day is observed to raise awareness about the need to protect our environment and to create a platform for collection action to conserve nature.
Every year there is a different theme that is used to celebrate the day. The theme for this year’s event is Only One Earth, which was used at the first global environment conference held in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1972. According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), this year’s theme calls for collective, transformative action on a global scale to celebrate, protect and restore our planet.
It will focus on the importance of living sustainably and in peace with nature. Planting trees, reducing carbon footprint, changing diets and cleaning up rivers as well as coasts have all become very essential to save our environment.
Here we’ve compiled a list of messages, quotes and greetings to send to your friends, colleagues and relatives on World Environment Day 2022 in order to raise awareness.
