World Environment Day 2011

world environment day 2011

















Mankind has scaled to new heights. Today we have everything we ever dreamt off. But we have attained all this at the cost of environment. Clean water, fresh air all these are our necessities, but would our future generations be fortunate enough to enjoy these or would they be deprived of their basic rights to a clean environment. Our acts have damaged the environment, but not beyond repair. We have to start today so as to have a tomorrow. It is now up to us to reconstruct, to reconstruct for a greener, lively and healthy tomorrow.

Observe World Environment Day 2011

World Environment day is observed on June 5th every year. This day is observed so as to protect our nature and to protect our bio-diversity and to provide protection against any harm caused to the nature. This day is observed so as to tackle various environmental problems such as global warming, climatic changes, disasters and conflicts etc.

The eminence of nature is dipping day by day. This has been a problem even in earlier times but now it has become a major concern. There are many quotes on World Environment Day namely:-
