World Environment Day

World Environment Day is commemorated each year on 5 June. This day is one of the main ways in which the United Nations raises awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action.

The theme for 2009 is 'Your Planet Needs You - UNite to Combat Climate Change'.

Please make a pledge to help improve the environment and combat climate change. There are ideas for making simple changes on our web pages and more ideas on the World Environment Day Do Something Tips web page.

You could also encourage your friends and colleagues to make a pledge!
