The date was selected because it was opening day of the UN Conference on Human Environment that led to the establishment of United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) since then each year 5th June is celebrated WED in different locations of the globe with a specific theme. This year’s theme for World Environment Day 2022 theme, ‘Only One Earth’, focuses on living sustainably in harmony with nature. The Government of Sweden will host Stockholm+50 , an international meeting to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1972 Stockholm Conference and to accelerate implementation to deliver on the 2030 Agenda and achieve sustainable recovery from COVID-19.

Stockholm+50 will provide an opportunity for the international community to strengthen cooperation and show leadership in the transformation towards a more sustainable society, in line with the declaration that was recently adopted in conjunction with the marking of the 75th anniversary of the UN.

WED needs not to be seen just a day set aside in a year to discuss, undertake and solve environmental issues as they affect the world but the day must continue every day. It should not be just one day in a week, month, year or a decade but every day of our lives. We should celebrate with zeal and zest our accomplishments of WED and do so with the renewed sense of energy. The challenge is how can we discuss,experiment and improve the environment through a single day set aside in a year. To most of us, if the day is over and environmental issues suspended till the next WED we need to change such a callous attitude towards our environment rather we need to examine critically the state of our environment and to consider carefully the actions which each of us must take, and then address ourselves, to our common task of preserving life on Only One Earth. let's Go For safety of Life!
