WED - World Environment Day 2016
The 5th of June is World Environment Day !
Since it began in 1974, WED is the United Nations' most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Above all, WED serves as the 'people's day' for doing something to take care of the Earth or become an agent of change.
WED 2016 is themed on the illegal trade in wildlife under the slogan 'Go Wild for Life': the aim is to celebrate all those species under threat and safeguard them for future generations.
Why not engaging your class in the celebration? On the website you can find a toolkit
about the five quick steps to consider in making your day a success, complete with materials and figures about illegal trade in wildlife.
