World Environment Day (WED) is an annual event that is aimed at being the biggest and most widely celebrated global day for positive environmental action.
WED celebration began in 1972 and has grown to become the one of the main vehicles through which the UN stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and encourages political attention and action.[snip]
This year’s theme ‘Forests: Nature at Your Service’ underscores the intrinsic link between quality of life and the health of forests and forest ecosystems. The WED theme also supports this year’s UN International Year of Forests.
