GN Bureau | June 5, 2015
Protection of environment is proactive and continuous endeavour. June 5 is the day when the humanity observes World Environment Day.
Under the United Nations’ the day is to bring awareness and action for the environment. It is the ‘people’s day’ for doing something positive for the environment, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.
The theme of environment day this year is “Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care.” Consuming with care means, living within the planetary boundaries for a healthy future.
The well-being of humanity, the environment, and the functioning of the economy, ultimately depend upon the responsible management of the planet’s natural resources. But every study and statistics speak of alarming levels of consumption of renewable and non-renewable resources.
On #WorldEnvironmentDay let us pledge to respect nature.(1/2)— Office of RG (@OfficeOfRG) June 5, 2015
