World Environment Day is observed annually on June 5. It is led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and will be hosted by Sweden for this year.
World Environment Day was first celebrated in 1973 by millions of people across the world. Over the years, it has grown to be the largest global platform for environmental outreach.
“Only One Earth” is the campaign for World Environment Day 2022. It was the slogan for the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, held in Stockholm in 1972. With the focus on ‘Living Sustainably in Harmony with Nature,’ it calls for collective, transformative action on a global scale to celebrate, protect and restore our planet.
- “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.”
- “What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?”
- “A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people. ”
- “It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.”
- “People ‘over-produce’ pollution because they are not paying for the costs of dealing with it.”
- “To waste, to destroy our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.”
- “Nature shrinks as capital grows. The growth of the market cannot solve the very crisis it creates.”
- “You wouldn’t think you could kill an ocean, would you? But we’ll do it one day. That’s how negligent we are.”
- “Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans.”
- “Love is in the air but the air is highly polluted”
- “Talking about pollution, nobody’s holy.
They who pollute, sinned against nature.”
