Happy World Ocean’s Day!
On World Ocean’s Day people around the planet celebrate and honor the body of water which links us all, for what it provides humans and what it represents.
World Ocean’s Day is an opportunity every year to honor the world’s ocean, celebrate the products the ocean provides such as seafood as well as marine life itself for aquariums, pets, and also a time to appreciate its own intrinsic value. This year, we encourage you to reach out to young people in your community and help inspire them for the 2012 theme Youth: the Next Wave for Change
It’s up to each one of us to help ensure that our ocean is protected and conserved for future generations. World Ocean’s Day allows us to:
- Change perspective – encourage individuals to think about what the ocean means to them and what it has to offer all of us with hopes of conserving it for present and the future generations.
- Learn – discover the wealth of diverse and beautiful ocean creatures and habitats, how our daily actions affect them, and how we are all interconnected.
- Change our ways – we are all linked to, and through, the ocean! By taking care of your backyard, you are acting as a caretaker of our ocean. Making small modifications to your everyday habits will greatly benefit our blue planet.
World Environment Day is the biggest and most widely celebrated global day for positive environmental action. World Environment Day activities take place all year round but climax on June 5. It has grown to become the one of the main vehicles through which the United Nations (UN) stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment as well as encourages political attention and action.
Through World Environment Day, the UN Environment Programme is able to personalize environmental issues and enable everyone to realize not only their responsibility, but also their power to become agents for change in support of sustainable development; to come together to ensure a cleaner, greener and brighter outlook for themselves and future generations.
The 2012 theme for World Environment Day is Green Economy: Does it include you?
In its simplest expression, a green economy can be thought of as one which is low carbon, resource efficient and far more sustainable way of doing business. Everyone counts in this initiative and World Environment Day calls for action – organize a neighborhood clean-up, stop using plastic bags and get your community/coworkers to do the same, plant a tree, print less, walk to work, start a recycling drive…the possibilities are endless!
Are you included in the green economy?
