WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY – JUNE 5

20th May 2015

World Environment Day 

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.”

World Environment Day – Mr Ban Ki-Moon 

"Although individual decisions may seem small in the face of global threats and trends, when billions of people join forces in common purpose, we can make a tremendous difference." – UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon

Mercy Partners is looking at environmental sustainability and the future of the earth in our 2015 Annual Gathering on July 17-18.
