World Environment Day, which is celebrated on 5th June every year is celebrated this year as well in the whole world including India. Every year environment day is being celebrated with a theme and this year’s theme is “Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care”. This year, through this theme the message which is being sent to every human on this planet is to protect it. Earth is the only place for our survival with limited resources and limited land to live on. We are seven billion people now on earth, so each of us owes a responsibility towards it.
If we will not respect our earth and it’s resourced everything would come to an end. If we will keep using it without giving a second thought, then our survival on our lovely planet will be difficult. If this will continue for long then there will be a time when our grandchildren will strive for food.
So, this day whole world will be celebrating the environment day by planting a lot of plants and cleaning river. Greenhouse effect and climate change are becoming more serious these days. Every year nature shows it’s side effects in one or another part of the earth in the form of flood or drought. Summers are becoming more hotter and winters are becoming more cooler year by year. The situation is alarming and if not paid attention to the environment it will worsen.
Growing trees are the best way to keep our earth cycle normal. Forests need to be protected as the flora and fauna of earth play an important role in keeping the earth worth living. If the natural species would extinct then the balance would not be possible on earth. So every person should plant trees and protect them Use resources thinking that they will last only a few days and need to be used carefully.
Many organizations are becoming aware of protecting the earth and playing an important role in saving it. For example, Zee News launched ‘My Earth, My Duty’ campaign and entered the Limca Book of Records for planting more than 7,300,000 trees in one single day across 34 cities and 250,000 villages on 25 August 2010.
World environment day focuses on issues which need to be tackled to save the earth and avoid harmful consequences. For example, countries like Beijing have smog amount 20 times more than permitted according to World Health Organisation. India’s capital New Delhi is among the most air polluted cities of the world carrying hazardous diseases in its air. A lot of people suffer from breathing problem in Delhi. This air polluting environment is life taking as outdoor air pollution was estimated to cause 3.7 million premature deaths worldwide in 2012.
So, we should all pledge to save our planet earth from further loss of soil, water and air quality. This degradation in quality would kill each of us one day. So before that happens it is essential to take some steps. Prime Minister of India Mr Narendra Modi planted a tree today and spread a message of saving the earth and planting trees. Schools have organized rallies and campaigns to plant saplings in school premises all over India.
