Saturday 5th June this year will mark World Environment Day, and it’s a day which is significant to everyone. It’s a day which marks the importance of the environment and acts as a reminder to everyone that nature should not be taken for granted.
Each year carries a theme and the day is hosted by different countries and this year is Ecosystem Restoration and the global host country is Pakistan. World Environment Day is one of the biggest annual events organised by the United Nations to generate awareness about the significant of nature. It is also an initiative to help understand and establish long term goals and the implementation of strategies and policies that need to be put in place if we are to ensure the preservation of our environment and sustainability.
During the course of the Covid pandemic, with a lot of cities being under lockdown there has been a significant reduction in water pollution and carbon emissions and an improvement to the air quality. The earth and mother nature did see some benefits as nature had time to cleanse and reclaim it’s space however, now that restrictions around the world have been lifted, we are slowly seeing these effects wear off.
If we want to continue to see improvements in the environment around us we have to actively seek ways and put in a conscious effort to look after our surroundings and reduce any negative impacts we may make. If we all pull together we can really make a difference, there are many ways to get involved and plenty of resources out there that can help you to find ways to help restore nature. Join #GenerationRestoration and get active for our planet.
