The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature.

Yet, these are exceptional times in which nature is sending us a message.
Nature is showing that we are on the verge of a breakdown.

It’s time to wake up. To take notice. To reimagine our relationship with nature.

It’s time to raise our voices to tell the world that we need action now.
This World Environment Day, it’s Time for Nature.


A Platform for Action
World Environment Day is the UN’s most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Since it began in 1974, it has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.

The People’s Day
Above all, World Environment Day is the “people’s day” for doing something to take care of the Earth. That “something” can be focused locally, nationally or globally; it can be a solo action or involve a crowd. Everyone is free to choose.

The Theme
Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme that focuses attention on a particularly pressing environmental concern. The theme for 2020 is Time for Nature.

The Host
Every World Environment Day has a different global host country, where the official celebrations take place. The focus on the host country helps highlight the environmental challenges it faces, and supports the effort to address them. This year’s host is Columbia.

 

         

This World Environment Day, learn how all living things on Earth are connected in the web of life and how we can act #ForNature
