In 1972, the UN General Assembly designated 5th June as World Environment Day (WED). Every year the day is celebrated with a theme to create awareness among the people on various topics like climate change, global warming, ozone, pollution, sustainability etc. The year 2022 marks 50 years since the first United Nations Conference on the Human Environment – the 1972 Stockholm Conference that led to the creation of UNEP and designating 5 June every year as World Environment Day.
What is the theme/slogan of World Environment Day 2022?
The theme for the World Environment Day in 2022 is ‘Only One Earth‘. The global campaign #OnlyOneEarth calls for transformative changes to policies and choices to enable cleaner, greener, and sustainable living in harmony with nature.
The human mind knows no boundaries. But our planet does. We have created so much. But often at the cost of nature. We can no longer continue down a path of irreversible harm to the environment. Let’s renew our resolve and our climate. Let’s strengthen our commitments and our biodiversity. Let’s rethink how we consume, revive what we destroyed and reconnect with what sustains us. Our home. #OnlyOneEarth. (Source: https://www.worldenvironmentday.global/)
