“The Biggest Myth to our environment is the belief that someone else will save it”
THE WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY, this day is one of the biggest events which is celebrated around the whole globe every year. It has been seen that during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, the sky seen clear, the air felt less polluted, in result the environment gets benefitted slightly.
This World Environment Day was established in 1972 by the United Nations (UN) on the first day of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment, resulting from discussions on the integration of human interactions and the environment. Two years later, in 1974 for the first time, World Environment Day was held with the theme “Only One Earth”. Even though world environment day celebrations have been held annually since 1974, in 1987 the idea for rotating the center of these activities through selecting different host countries began. Every year there is a theme of the world environment day.
The theme for 2020 is “Time for Nature”, and will be hosted in Colombia in partnership with Germany. Actually, this day is “People’s Day” to do something to protect and to preserve the earth and the environment. It is to take care of the environment and to do needful for its protection.
Before doing anything we must know how we can protect the environment:-
For our healthy living on earth, the environment plays a vital role. It provides us fresh air, organic food, etc, and everything which is necessary to survive. Here most important we can differentiate animals and humans as by this thought “animals change themselves for the environment, but humans change the environment for themselves”. The environment is just like our home, neighborhood, society. The condition of the environment influence human and also change the development and growth. The development and growth of us always depend on the surroundings and environment provides us these surrounding conditions which make our growth and development better and best.
It’s time to appreciate the benefits that nature provides us. It’s time to take action for the protection and restoration of our natural world. It’s time #FOR NATURE. With the change in our modern lifestyle, the situation of the environment has defaced on a day-to-day basis. The people had made their life more comfortable with the technology, due to which environment has suffered negative consequences. On this World Environment Day 2020, we take action in some ways by which we can contribute our role to preserve and protect our environment.
