World Environment Day (WED) 2011, in support of the UN International Year of Forests (IYF), is aimed to be the biggest and most widely celebrated global day for positive action for the environment. This year’s theme – Forests: Nature at Your Service – underscores the variety of life-sustaining services that forests provide and calls us all to take action to protect these resources and move towards a green economy.
Every activity matters – organize a neighborhood clean-up; announce an environmental initiative for your city, state or country; adopt targets for environmental improvements in your company; use cloth bags and motivate your school mates and teachers to do the same; plant a tree or better yet organize a collective tree-planting effort for your family; walk to work, start a recycling drive among your friends… the possibilities are endless.
