World Environment Day is celebrated annually on June 5 by the United Nations under its United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The aim of World Environment Day, also know as 'Eco Day' or'Environment Day', is to spread awareness about the importance of the environment and also the need to protect it for the future generations.
Why World Environment Day is celebrated
The first World Environment Day was celebrated in 1972 by the UNEP to highlight the importance of a green, clean and healthy environment for all human beings. The day witnesses various campaign being organised by companies, organisations and NGOs to promote the importance of the environment and to spread awareness about the deteriorating condition of the environment. This year the theme of World Environment Day was decided as 'Time for Nature'.

Time for Nature
The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature.
To care for ourselves we must care for nature.
It's time to wake up.
