World Environment Day 2020
June 5 is celebrated as World Environment Day every year. The theme for World Environment Day 2020 is `Biodiversity` - a concern that is both urgent and existential.
The environment in which we live can be understood as a blanket that keeps life on the planet sage and sound. It plays a vital role in keeping living things healthy. It provides food, shelter, air, and fulfils all the human needs. Likewise, it maintains the ecological balance on earth.
The whole life support of humans depends solely on environmental factors. Without environment we cannot imagine life on this planet.
But today, when there has been a lot of technological development in the world, the environment in which we are living is becoming increasingly contaminated.
Therefore, to spread awareness and to make people understand that they have a role to play in preventing the loss of biodiversity and preserving nature for our future. World Environment Day is celebrated every year.
Robert Swan once said, "The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it."
And we need to listen closely.
Every year, on this day, people usually people go out to the field to plant saplings and other various events are organised. But this year, as people are confined to the four walls of their homes due to Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, the World Environment Day celebration would be different.
Amidst the lockdown, instead of going out, people can promote the day and raise awareness through online activities, as we do ;)
Happy World Environment Day 2020 to you!
