World Environment Day is held each year on June 5. It is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations (UN) stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action.
‘Connecting People to Nature’, the theme for World Environment Day 2017, implores us to get outdoors and into nature, to appreciate its beauty and its importance, and to take forward the call to protect the Earth that we share.
"Nature, the First People, and the spirit of our ancestors are giving great warnings. If we human beings do not wake up to the warnings, the great purification will come to destroy the world - just as the previous worlds were destroyed." ~ Thomas Banyacya, Hopi Elder
