ENVIRONMENT DAY
5 JUNE

“Our Earth. Our Care.”

The United Nations General Assembly established World Environment Day in 1972 to commemorate the opening of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment. On the same day, the General Assembly created the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), which is now the United Nations principal agency for environmental action.

Since then World Environment Day has been celebrated every year on June 5.
It has become one of the United Nations primary ways to raise global awareness of environmental issues and to help stimulate political attention, public action, and personal commitment to environmental preservation.
