The stars shone in the night sky, The moon was sitting bright and high, The sun shone in the morning sky, The birds were flying, The rubbish sways in the cool breeze, So take your litter home please, We keep the forest neat and clean, So there is no pollution to be seen, The tall grass is spiky and green, When the wind blows it is clearly seen, Upon the mountain the trees sway, The leaves blow way -Amelia Bester
The celebration of the World Environment Day began in 1972 and has developed to become one of the main platforms through when the United Nations encourages positive action for the environment. Through the World Environment Day, it enables everyone to realize the task to care for the Earth and reminds all individuals about their power to become agents of change. Remember that every action of an individual counts, and when it is multiplied by a global chorus, it becomes exponential in its impact.
The World Environment Day is a big celebration, engaging millions across the globe through events such as clean-up campaigns, art exhibits or even tree-planting events on the ground in over 70 countries. It is celebrated on 5th day of June 2014 and marked as a day that braces awareness of the environment and enhances both public attention and action. The agenda for this day includes advocating partnership which will grant all nations and people a safer and more prosperous future environment, promoting an understanding about the pivotal role of communities towards environmental preservation and empower people to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development of environment.
