The World Environment Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972 to mark the opening of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment. Another resolution, adopted by the General Assembly the same day, led to the creation of UNEP.
The World Environment Day can be celebrated in many ways, including street rallies, bicycle parades, green concerts, essay and poster competitions at schools, tree planting, recycling efforts, clean-up campaigns, etc. In many countries this annual event is used to enhance political attention and action. Heads of State, Prime Ministers and Ministers of Environment deliver statements and commit themselves to care for the environment. More serious pledges are made which lead to the establishment of permanent governmental structures dealing with environmental management and economic planning. This event also provides an opportunity to sign and ratify international environmental conventions. On the World Environment Day we can examine the state of our environment and consider carefully the actions which each of us must take.
Every year the World Environment Day is celebrated all around the world. In 2001 some 100 countries undertook thousands of activities, not only on the World Environment Day itself, but often for an entire week and sometimes even a whole month. Activities organized involved all sectors of society, including governments, non-governmental organizations, business, industry, inter-governmental organizations, civic societies, media and schools.
