World Earth Day 2020

World Environment Day 2020 | Significance | Theme | Hosting| Steps we can take

And the time arrived,
when nature began to pull you down,
from the throne,
you built over love.

She gave you her breath,
gave her water,
gave her heart and soul,
to make you happy.

But you,
conquered all her blessings,
took power in your hands,
and established your kingdom.

Not anymore!!

Wakeup!!
It’s Time for Nature!!

Notice
Raise your voice
Let’s build back her together

For a better future
A better planet!!

The UN General Assembly designates 5 June as World Environment Day, marking the first day of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment.
Another resolution, adopted by the General Assembly the same day, leads to the creation of the UN Environment.

The theme of world environment day 2020

Each year there will be a theme and one of the world countries will host the celebration.
The theme of 2020 is Protecting Biodiversity which is hosted by Colombia with the support of Germany.

What is biodiversity and how it’s important?

Biodiversity, or biological diversity, is the variability of living things that makes up life on Earth.

Decrease in biodiversity due to environmental causes such as pollution, alien species, global warming so on will result in the reduction in nature’s capacity to provide its resources in the best ways.

What we can do to protect biodiversity?

There are so many ways through which we can adopt biodiversity protection as an individual or firm, business, educational institutes, leaders, even as cities.
Either it’s a tiny little step or a big leap, every efforts matter.
COVID has taught us a lot of things that will hopefully pave the wave for a new earth.

steps we can take as an individual

  • Build a home garden.
    No need to be a fancy one, but a realistic one.
    How awesome is to have your veggies in your garden?
  • Stop throwing wastes here and there. Let them end up in their home; the waste bin.
  • Carry a cloth bag with you when you go out.
    If you buy something, you don’t have to run to the single-use plastic bags.
  • Clean your refrigerator once a week.
    By cleaning, you can find those veggies or fruits hiding behind other stuff in your refrigerator.
    Use it before it gets spoiled, and also save some bucks by avoiding wasting groceries.
  • Conserve energy whenever possible.
    Turn off your lights, fans, and AC after use.
    Make use of natural light when its available.
