World Environment Day

June 5

World Environment Day is an international environmental awareness day celebrated every 5th of June. It is organised by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to encourage global awareness for the protection of the environment, as well as call for actions to promote environmental sustainability.

As the biggest annual event for positive environmental action, the day focuses on environmental concerns ranging from pollution, global warming, sustainable food production and protection of wildlife.

Every year, we use the event to shore up public engagement and advocacy about the state of the environment and deliberate on what local actions are necessary to ensure global environmental sustainability.

Some of the activities carried out during World Environment Day are:

  • Waste management;
  • Beach/Market clean- up;
  • School/community gardening and a-forestation programme
  • Climate Change Campaigns.
  • Flora and fauna drama by students.
  • Inter school competition
  • Community awareness and sensitisation
  • Poetry, etc.

We will be engaging more communities along the Nigerian coastline as a way of protecting other species such as the African Manatee Trichechus senegalensis, as well as whales that sometime beach (Cetacean stranding).
