Like every year, 5th June marks the World Environment Day. While 2018, saw India hosting the global World Environment Day, 2019 will witness China hosting celebrations on the theme, ‘Air Pollution’. United Nations is taking the initiative to celebrate this day to disseminate knowledge among individuals and promote them to take action to safeguard the environment. The campaign is raised every year with some environmental issues such as global warming, marine pollution, overpopulation of humans, etc.
This year’s theme for World Environment Day – Air Pollution
We often miss out crucial details and best practices that can help us fight the increasing Environmental concerns. The reality is scary, we understand. But for how long are we going to avoid it? We have only one planet and considering the rate at which we are degrading it, the future looks horrific.
We live in a society where every time when a problem arises we hear one reply, “Be the change you want to see in the world”. Then, why are we waiting for a miracle? Why are we depending upon the government, climate control bodies and the NGO’s to find out a solution? Aren’t we responsible for bringing this menace on earth?
