  • World Environment Day World Environment Day ('WED') is celebrated every year on June 5 to raise global awareness to take positive environmental action. To protect nature and the planet Earth. It is run by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
  • World Environment Day WED was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972 on the day that United Nations Conference on the Human Environment began. The first World Environment Day was celebrated in 1973. Since then it is hosted every year by a different city with a different theme.
  • World Environment Day World Environment Day falls in spring in the Northern Hemisphere and fall in the Southern Hemisphere, and midsummer in the Tropical regions.
  • World Environment Day 1972, It was the first occasion on which the political, social and economic problems of the global environment were discussed at an intergovernmental forum with a view to actually taking corrective action. The first World Environment Day was celebrated in 1973. Since then it is hosted every year by a different city with a different theme.
  • WED: Earth Anthem
  • WED: Earth Anthem "Earth Anthem" by poet-diplomat Abhay K was launched in June 2013 on the occasion of the World Environment Day by Kapil Sibal and Shashi Tharoor, Union Ministers of India at a function organized by the Indian Council of Cultural Relations in New Delhi. It is in eight languages including all official languages of the United Nations viz. Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, Spanish. The other two languages are Hindi and Nepali.
  • WED: Earth Anthem Our cosmic oasis, cosmic blue pearl the most beautiful planet in the universe all the continents and the oceans of the world united we stand as flora and fauna united we stand as species of one earth black, brown, white, different colours we are humans, the earth is our home.

  • WED Theme, 2014 Small Islands and Climate Change
  • WED Theme, 2014 The 2014 theme for world Environment Day: 'Small Islands and Climate Change. The official slogan for the year 2014: 'Raise Your Voice , Not The Sea Level. This is in support of the UN's designation of 2014 as the International Year of Small Island Developing States (SIDS).
  • WED:SIDS as its Theme The objectives are to help build momentum towards the Third International Conference on SIDS in September 2014 and encourage a greater understanding of the importance of SIDS and of the urgency to help protect the islands in the face of growing risks and vulnerabilities, particularly as a result of climate change.
  • Small Island Developing States (SIDS) These are low-lying coastal countries that tend to share similar sustainable development challenges, including small but growing populations, limited resources, remoteness, susceptibility tonatural disasters, vulnerability to external shocks, excessive dependence on international trade, and fragile environments.
  • Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Their growth and development is held back by high communication, energy and transportation costs, irregular international transport volumes, disproportionately expensive public administration and infrastructure due to their small size, and little to no opportunity to create economies of scale.
  • Small Island Developing States (SIDS) The SIDS were first recognized as a distinct group of developing countries at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in June 1992. The Barbados Programme of Action was produced in 1994 to assist the SIDS in their sustainable development efforts. The United Nations Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States represents this group of states.
  • Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Many SIDS now recognise the need to move towards low-carbon, climate resilient economies, as set out in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) implementation plan for climate change-resilient development. SIDS often rely heavily on imported fossil fuels, spending an ever-larger proportion of their GDP on energy imports. Renewable technologies have the advantage of providing energy at a lower cost than fossil fuels and making SIDS more sustainable.
  • List of SIDS Currently, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs lists 52 small island developing states. These are broken down into three geographic regions:(1) theCaribbean; (2) the Pacific; and (3) Africa, Indian Ocean, Mediterranean and South China Sea (AIMS)

  • Children's efforts In 2012, Project Earth, an Online Eco Platform teamed up with Rio+20 and Launched ' World Environment Day Global School Contest 2012 ' to promote awareness among today's youth. Every country had a winner. Project GreenOman,The winner from Oman, was an Eco organization founded by Hridith Sudev and is a full fledged kid's Eco Organization now.
  • Events associated with WED Eco Action Day: It is celebrated since 2007 in Singapore to inspire individuals to reduce energy use at the workplace.
  • SEA LEVEL RISE
  • REASONS OF SEA LEVEL RISE GLOBAL WARMING :a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, CFCs, and other pollutants. Another term for "global warming" is "climate change."
  • Reasons of sea level rise There are two main causes of sea level rise: 1. As air temperatures rise (due to climate change) the water in the oceans is warmed and expands. This process is called thermal expansion. 2. As ice sheets and glaciers melt, they increase the amount of water in the oceans.
  • Current sea level rise Current sea level rise is about 3 mm/year worldwide. According to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(NOAA), "this is a significantly larger rate than the sea-level rise averaged over the last several thousand years", and the rate may be increasing. Sea level rises can considerably influence human popula
