Take a Green Pledge – Let’s Celebrate World Environment Day!

World Environment Day is on 5 June.

This day is used by the United Nations to stimulate worldwide awareness of environmental issues. On this day people from all over the world  do something positive to help our planet. What could you do? Lots of little things can make a big difference.World Environment Day is all about working together to take action for the planet. Something as small as making sure people have a way to recycle in your school / community can make a difference. You could also try beautifying your neighborhood by planting gardens, learn about organic and local foods, or simply learning about the effects of different products we use everyday, on the earth.

What can we learn and why is it important to participate and celebrate this day?

We want the world to be safe, clean and beautiful for you as you grow up, and we want your children and their children to have a beautiful world to live in. For that to happen we have to work together to take care of our planet Earth. Here are themed activities to celebrate World Environment Day without much ado and just by taking care of your surrounding environment by yourself.

Remember, we only get one planet, so let’s keep it clean and beautiful for generations to come!
