Today is World Environment Day (WED)! On this day every year people from all over the world come together to raise global awareness of the need to take positive environmental actions.
The first ever WED was nearly 40 years ago! WED is hosted every year by a different city with a different theme and is commemorated with an international exposition in the week of June 5th.
Last years theme was “Forests- Nature At Your Service” and the global host was India- a county of wide biodiversity. In 2011 thousands of activities were organized worldwide, which consisted of beach clean-ups, exhibits, concerts, film festivals and many more other community events.
This years theme is “Green Economy: Does this include you?” and is being hosted by Brazil.
