WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY – JUNE 5
World Environment Day
The world celebrates World Environment Day on June 5. We are all asked to stop and ask ourselves how we live and how it impacts our living planet; to evaluate our consumer habits: how we shop,eat and travel.
The UN Environment Programme says creating more sustainable lifestyles is crucial: “By 2050, if current consumption and production patterns remain the same and with a rising population expected to reach 9.6 billion, we will need three planets to sustain our way of life. Living well within planetary boundaries is the most promising strategy for ensuring a healthy future.”
