World Environment Day is June 5 every year. It reflects the understanding and attitude of people all over the world towards environmental problems and expresses human yearning and pursuit for a better environment. It is one of the main media for the United Nations to promote global environmental awareness, raise government attention to environmental issues and take action.
In October 1972, the 27th United Nations General Assembly adopted the recommendations of the United Nations Conference on the human environment, stipulating June 5 of each year as "World Environment Day", so that people all over the world can commemorate it forever. The United Nations system and governments should carry out various activities on this day every year to remind the world of the global environmental situation and the harm of human activities to the environment, and emphasize the importance of protecting and improving the human environment.
Many countries, groups and people carry out various activities on world environment day to emphasize the importance of protecting and improving the human environment. At the same time, the United Nations Environment Programme publishes the annual report on the state of the world environment and takes practical steps to coordinate the relationship between human beings and the environment. World Environment Day symbolizes the development of the world's human environment to a better stage and the positive contributions of governments around the world to the protection of human living environment.
