People across the globe will mark World Environment Day today. Held annually since 1973, it is the biggest observance related to the environment. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) leads the observance of World Environment Day. The event will be hosted by Sweden. The theme for World Environment Day this year is “Only One Earth”, with focus on “living sustainably in harmony with nature”.
“The 2022 World Environment Day campaign #OnlyOneEarth calls for collective, transformative action on a global scale to celebrate, protect and restore our planet,” UNEP said. UNEP has called on individuals, businesses and governments to share with the world what they are doing to help the environment.
