World Environment Day

On World Environment Day people from countries all around the world come together to take action to preserve our planet. We find out about some of the things people are doing to celebrate this special day.

People celebrate World Environment Day in several different ways all over the world:

planting trees

cleaning up local beaches

organising meetings,

joining online protests

Each year the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) chooses a particular issue to focus on. One year it might be forests, another year it might be wildlife. And each year there is a new host a city which is the centre point for all the celebrations.
