World Environment Day 2020

Michelle Mak Community, Daily Life, Fun Facts, Newcomer Information

June 5, 2020 is  World Environment Day, a day to appreciate nature and to reflect on the positive actions we can take to leave a cleaner, healthier planet for generations to come.

“This year’s theme is Biodiversity, “it demonstrates the importance of our natural world, from the insects in our backyards and the birds in our neighbourhood parks, to the water lilies in our lakes and the trees in our forests.” It is important to understand what we can do to protect plant and animal species and help sustain our planet.

To support this day, you can browse through an extensive list of events hosted by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and supporters, featuring high level speakers, expert panels, virtual tours of products and places, Goodwill Ambassadors, Young Champions of the Earth, film screenings, music sessions and other events taking place in Colombia, the World Environment Day host country.
