For the world environment day today with the theme “Connecting people to nature“.
This year’s host is Canada.
On a lighter note, how nice would it have been if it were the France. And we had sloganeerings along the lines of…
“Make our planet great again”: E.Macron
Back to topic here in India, the Ministry in Government of India is also sending out message to let the intent of the day live throughout year till next June the Fifth arrives and elongate the one day affair to a year long ones.
There is also a realisation that “Nature protects, if she is protected” and fittingly it is what the Ministry’s logo reads.
About the World Environment Day.
World Environment Day on June 5 is a collective call for preserving and conserving nature and environment. The day reminds us of our responsibility towards sustainable use of resources. It is celebrated every year to raise global awareness for taking positive environmental action. It was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972 on the day the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment. The first World Environment Day was celebrated in 1973 at Stockholm. Since then it is hosted every year by a different city with a unique theme. (pib). & pic: moefccc-goi
A quote from Translated works of Rabindranath Tagore.
Our matra is simple.
Each time we feel in need something (materials to start with) let’s chant “refuse,reduce and reuse“.
