World Environment Day is a day to focus on the need to protect the environment.
The World Environment Day was first celebrated in 1974 and is held every year on June 5th. The day is intended to focus attention on the need to protect and improve the environment. The day was founded by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972, following concerns about growing levels of pollution and damage to natural resources. Since then, it has grown into a global event with thousands of events taking place around the world each year.
In recent years, World Environment Day has also been used as an opportunity for people to reduce their carbon footprint. For example, people might take public transport instead of driving or plant trees or flowers in their garden.
