This Environment Day, let’s get really big stuff done for our planet.
We are now entering the 43rd year of a movement that continues to inspire, challenge ideas, ignite passion, and motivate people to action for the sake of protecting the environment of our mother Earth.
In 1973, the year of first Environment Day, the movement gave voice to an emerging consciousness, channeling human energy toward environmental issues. Forty-three years later, we continue to lead with groundbreaking ideas and by the power of our example.
And so it begins. Today. Right here and right now. Environment Day is more than just a single day — June 5, 2016. It’s bigger than attending a rally and taking a stand.
This Environment Day and beyond, let’s make big stuff happen. Let’s plant 7.8 billion trees for the Earth. Let’s divest from fossil fuels and make cities 100% renewable. Let’s take a strong action to curb the illegal trade of wildlife products that are threatening the biodiversity of our precious planet.
Let’s start now. And let’s not stop.
