Today marks World Environment Day. It is celebrated through various activities and campaigns, all with the aim of drawing attention to numerous environmental problems and the need to preserve the environment.
The date of June 5 was set by the UN General Assembly because the Conference on Environmental Protection was held in Stockholm in 1972. The conference brought together 113 countries, which prepared a joint statement on the need for international cooperation in order to protect the environment.
The theme of this year’s World Environment Day is ecosystem restoration. The UN Environment Program (UNEP) has prepared a handbook on ecosystem restoration to help anyone interested in joining the Generation of Renewal movement. The handbook contains practical advice for specific activities, changing personal habits and spreading the idea of ecosystem renewal to the public.
On this day, numerous activities are initiated in the world, in which the public is involved, and which propagate a responsible attitude towards the environment. Every year, another city is chosen as the main place of celebration. This year, it is Pakistan, which is implementing an ecosystem restoration project – planting ten billion trees. The project was launched two years ago, and so far about a billion trees have been planted, and the plan is to plant all ten billion by 2023.
