Every year on the 5th of June, the world celebrates World Environment Day. On this day, environmental awareness and action activities are held to help and protect our environment. It brings attention about the activities that have a positive and negative impact on the planet and the environment. This day recognises our opportunity to extend our perspectives, views, and obligations in the area of environmental preservation and enhancement. The first World Environment Day was celebrated in 1974. The primary goal was to increase public awareness of emerging environmental concerns. Various campaigns are being organised by businesses, organisations, and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to promote the importance of the environment and to raise awareness about the declining state of the environment on this day. This environment day 2021 we can still manage to raise the same awareness but in a different way i.e. virtually. In these challenging times, we need to involve ourselves in new activities and works and working on our environment can be the best thing one can do.

World environment day 2021 theme
Celebrated every year on 5th June, the environment day 2021 theme is ‘Ecosystem Restoration’. Ecosystem restoration refers to aiding in the regeneration of habitats that have been harmed by pollution or deforestation. Ecosystem restoration may also be supported by the preservation of the remaining habitats.
