June 5 - World Environment Day

World Environment Day (WED) is celebrated on the 5th of June every year. WED was established by the UN General Assembly in 1972 on the first day of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment, resulting from discussions on the integration of human interactions and the environment. The protection and improvement of the human environment is a major issue, which affects the well-being of people and economic development throughout the world. The aim of the Day is to raise global awareness about the significance of a healthy environment and to solve various environmental issues by implementing some actions to protect nature and Earth.
