5th June, World Environment Day is organized to encourage people to get outdoors(out of their comfort zones) and appreciate the beauty of our planet and promote awareness among our future generation about the significance and protection of healthy environment.
But an integral question is: Is 5th June just a day to turn our attention towards cleaning our planet or planting saplings?
Maybe it is. Because we are too reluctant with our environment and too busy with our daily hectic schedule that we don’t get time to focus our attention towards the environment. So, June 5th is not just a day to read about the problems affecting the countryside instead it is a day which makes us get off from our place to do something that helps to preserve nature like litter picking outing, hiking in your local park, planting trees etc.
The World Environmental Day is also celebrated to inculcate new seeds of thought and opinion regarding our environment in the minds of people. We are living in smart era so, why not we promote the importance of healthy environment through our smart technologies like snapping some beautiful shots of the great outdoors and sharing them online.
This year is all about connecting people to nature. The theme was chosen by this year’s host country CANADA which will be the center of World Environment Day activities. Celebrating World Environment Day began in 1972, global citizens have organized many thousands of events. But this year the theme itself is so lively that it motivates the people to plant more trees, for cleaning up their neighborhoods and taking action against wildlife crimes.
Make your environment pollution free by planting saplings in your garden or in your nearest parks that directly links you up with nature. Don’t think much just go out of your house to your local parks and don’t enjoy the beauty by watching idly. Connect yourself with the nature by jumping straight into the lake. Get off your shoes and enjoy in the mud, let your feet and hands get dirty and sense the amaglamation of mud with water, and feel it’s pleasant smell. Decorate your home with beautiful fresh flowers at different places .
And all these steps are not only for 5th June, try to do this whenever you get time and feel aesthetic!
