World Environment Day

United Nations has designated 5 June as the World Environment Day to encourage worldwide awareness and action for protection of our environment. Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme that focuses attention on a particularly pressing environmental concern.

The theme for 2017, ‘Connecting People to Nature’, urges us to get outdoors and into nature, to appreciate its beauty and to think about how we are part of nature and how intimately we depend on it. It challenges us to find fun and exciting ways to experience and cherish this vital relationship.

Billions of rural people around the world spend every working day ‘connected to nature’ and appreciate fully their dependence on natural water supplies and how nature provides their livelihoods in the form of fertile soil. They are among the first to suffer when ecosystems are threatened, whether by pollution, climate change or over-exploitation.

Nature’s gifts are often hard to value in monetary terms. Like clean air, they are often taken for granted, at least until they become scarce. However, economists are developing ways to measure the multi-trillion-dollar worth of many so-called ‘ecosystem services’, from insects pollinating fruit trees to the leisure, health and spiritual benefits of a hike up a valley.

To commemorate this year’s World Environment Day, EPCO is organizing a two-day event to provide a platform for everyone to connect with nature through exciting activities and attractive prizes.

We are pleased to invite you all to join us in observing, experiencing and celebrating our connections with nature.

The scheme of activities is as follows

June 4, 2017 - Essay and Painting Competition

June 5, 2017 - In Congruence with Nature, Seed of resolution: Mud-seed ball making

Elaborate details of the event are provided on the portal.
