Sustainability and conservation of the environment are some of the most important issues that we face in the world today and as a part of the private sector in the environmental and horticultural industry, we believe that it is our duty to try to inform and raise awareness as well as celebrate environmental action.
Our planet, Earth, is the only livable planet we have so we as communities and individuals must do all that we can to preserve the Earth for future generations. Don’t think that it’s all up to the government, it is also up to us to do our part!
World Environment Day is the biggest international day for the environment and has grown to be the largest global platform for environmental outreach with millions of people from across the world engaging to protect the planet.
Over 150 countries are participating and the UN engages governments, businesses, civil society, schools, celebrities, cities and communities to raise awareness to these matters.
This year’s host country is Sweden and the official theme is Only One Earth.
Most local councils will be doing something to celebrate World Environment Day, check your local listings online for more details.
