World Environment Day is also known as the Environment Day, Eco Day or short form WED. World Environment Day is held each year on June 5. It is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations (UN) stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action.
World Environment Day is celebrated in many ways. Activities include street rallies and parades, as well as concerts, tree planting, and clean-up campaigns.
The main colors featured in many promotions for this event are natural colors depicting nature, the Earth and its natural resources. These colors are often softer shades of green, brown and blue. Images of natural the Earth’s features, such as snowy mountains, clean beaches, unpolluted rivers, and photos of natural flora and fauna, including fern leaves, are used to promote campaigns supporting the day.
What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.
We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
