When we see or experience the negative effects of climate change and environmental degradation, it is easy to blame others – governments for not prioritizing environmental policy; corporate organizations for raising greenhouse gas emissions; NGOs for not lobbying strongly enough for the environment; and individuals for not taking action. World Environment Day, however, is a day we put aside our differences and instead celebrate achievements made towards protecting the environment. By celebrating World Environment Day, we remind ourselves and others of the importance of caring for our environment. Remember that every action counts, so join us: every year, everywhere, everyone!
