About World Environment Day

The celebration of World Environment Day began in 1972 and has grown to become one of the main ways in which the United Nations encourages positive action for our environment. Through World Environment Day, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) encourages everyone to realise not only the responsibility to care for our earth, but also reminds us of our individual power to become agents of change. Every action counts, and when multiplied by a global chorus, the impact is exponential.

The theme for 2015 is ‘Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care’ – as living within our boundaries is the most promising strategy for ensuring a healthy future.
