It is time #ForNature [fr]
The oceans, the land, the forests, the water, the air we breathe constitue our environment. Protecting and improving the environment is a major issue that affects people’s well-being and is the keystone to a sustainable future.
Climate change, water and air pollution, biodiversity and soil degradation, the environment is undergoing unprecedented degradation, threatening our survival. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has also served as a reminder of the interdependence between the health of the planet and our health.
It is more necessary than ever to rethink our relationship with living things, natural ecosystems and their biological diversity.
Established by a resolution of the UN General Assembly on 15 December 1972 and celebrated each 5 June, World Environment Day provides an opportunity to raise awareness and encourage initiatives to take action on these urgent issues.
This year, the theme of the World Environment Day is BIODIVERSITY.
Biodiversity is the foundation that supports all life on land and below water.
Yet, one million plant and animal species are threatened with extinction, largely due to human activities. This World Environment Day should be an opportunity to rethink the way our systems have evolved and the impact they have on the environment.
It’s time to build back better for People and Planet. Together, we can act now #ForNature.
You too can act by getting involved and making your voice heard!
