June 5th is the United Nations annual World Environment Day and the focus this year is air pollution and its impact on our environment. Get involved!
World Environment Day will see events taking place across the globe, from the official celebrations in China to your own back yard. UN will have a 24-hour live feed – full of articles, pictures and videos – will help you engage and learn from what is going on around you. Follow the feed to join the celebrations virtually and find out what people in your region are doing to #BeatAirPollution.
Yet another great article from The Ecologist — this time, the quest by recently passed Polly Higgins (barrister turned environmentalist) who worked to get laws in order to create the new crime of ecocide — – the mass destruction of ecosystems – mirroring the existing international law against genocide – the mass destruction of peoples.
Everyone has something to offer in the quest to save and protect our environment.
Get involved — from volunteering on eco projects, cutting back on consumption, helping educate others on what they can do to help — or in Polly’s case: change laws to support progress… EVERY bit helps!
