World Environment day | Nigeria joins the world to celebrate on June 5, 2017. Today is World Environment Day and, gloomy though we all may be over the US pull out of the Paris climate deal, we are all encouraged to come together, reconnect with nature and celebrate the places that matter most to us. Nigeria also joins in the celebrations with a few activities lined up.
The event, a UN initiative, aims to encourage worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment.
This year’s host country is Canada, where there will be lots of official celebrations. It coincides with Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations and represents the pride and sense of identity the Canadian people draw from their incredible natural heritage.
In The News:
The theme of this years’ Word Environment Day is to reconnect with nature. Just one of the many ways to do this is by staying up to date with the latest environment news and supporting groundbreaking research occurring worldwide. Together, we can work to better preserve and understand our world.
