World Environment Day

Since 1974, World Environment Day has been celebrated every year on 5 June; engaging governments, businesses, celebrities and citizens to focus their efforts on a pressing environmental issue.

Every World Environment Day is hosted by a different country, in which official celebrations take place. This year's host is Colombia in partnership with Germany. The theme is biodiversity – a concern that is both urgent and existential.
