Health Days 2021

World Environment Day

​​Overview:

The world celebrates the World Environment Day on 5 June of every year. It was first observed in 1974 in Stockholm, and ever since, it has become a global opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of preserving the environment and controlling global warming.  This year, the World Environment focuses on “Ecosystem Restoration”, to avoid the emergence of a new pandemic. It will shed light on various kinds of restorations, such as:  growing trees, greening cities, rewilding gardens, making food systems more sustainable, cleaning up trash alongside rivers and coasts, and stopping the deterioration of ecosystems at a time when the world loses enough forests to cover a football pitch every three seconds. 

Objectives:  
  • Reimage, recreate, and restore the affected ecosystems to revive them.   
  • Raise awareness about the importance of preserving the environment.   

Official date: 
  • Globally: 5 June 2021
  • Locally: 24 Shawwal 1442H.
Theme: 
«Reimagine. Recreate. Restore.»
