World Environment Day observed on 5 Jun

Every year on June 5th, World Environment Day is celebrated to encourage worldwide awareness and action to protect the environment.

World Environment Day was established by the UN General Assembly in 1972 on the first day of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment, resulting from discussions on the integration of human interactions and the environment. 

In 1974 the first World Environment Day was held with the theme "Only One Earth"

The theme for World Environment Day 2020 is celebrating biodiversity – a concern that is both urgent and existential as per the United Nations official website.

The theme focuses on 'time for nature' and providing the essential infrastructure that supports life on Earth and human development. 

This year's host is Colombia in partnership with Germany. This year, millions of people will be celebrating digitally due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
