Introduction to World Environment Day


World Environment Day (WED) is a day aimed to increase local awareness and promote green issues. WED is the United Nations flagship environmental event, celebrated every year on 5th June in more than 100 countries around the world. WED is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action. WED was celebrated for the first time locally in 2004.  It has now become an annual feature in the Department’s Agenda.
