Nowadays, the environment is getting polluted due to the standard lifestyle and many reasons. In such a situation, it is very important to protect the environment from getting polluted to give a safe life to the coming generations. In such a situation, World Environment Day is celebrated every year with the aim of raising awareness about it.

To live a better life, it is very important to have a good environment. But nowadays pollution is increasing day by day. Not only the smoke coming out of factories and industries, there are many reasons behind this increasing pollution. In such a situation, it is very important to reduce it and protect the environment. Because in today's time, due to pollution, many respiratory diseases like asthma are increasing day by day.

World Environment Day is celebrated every year on 5 June to make people aware about the problems related to nature. On this occasion, programs are organized at various places to increase awareness among citizens about the environment. On this occasion, people are told about the damage being done to the environment.

History of World Environment Day

The decision to celebrate World Environment Day was taken in the Stockholm Conference by the United Nations in 1972. Its theme was environmental protection.

Every year a different theme is decided for this special day. This year the theme focuses on land restoration, desertification and drought like the slogan Our Land. Last year the theme of World Environment Day 2023 was based on solutions to plastic pollution.

Apart from factories, there are many other reasons for increasing pollution these days. Bad habits of humans like wasting water, polluting it and cutting trees affect the environment. The result of which humans have to suffer later by facing natural disasters.

If you are fond of travelling, then you must have seen that people go to places with mountains and rivers and throw garbage there. Plastic causes the most damage to the environment. Therefore, to save the environment, first of all, there is a need to be aware and bring about a change in oneself.

World Environment Day inspires us to think about nature not just for one day but to be aware of the environment every day and understand our responsibilities to save it and become a responsible citizen. If every person takes small steps like planting trees, reducing the use of vehicles, saving water and takes the responsibility of protecting the environment, then the environment can be kept safe with these small efforts and this is very important for the coming generations.
