Hi, this is World Environment Day 2014!!!
What are you thinking??? Yeah I am talking to you all…. It’s June 5th…. What are you going to do tomorrow on Environment Day?? What have you planned??? I am sure all of you must have planned something!!!
Raise your voice, Not the sea level– yes! This is the theme of 2014…. It’s about global warming this time…..
This is global day for action for the environment…. Have you planned something??? If you have, that’s great….but if you have not planned, no problem…there is time, you have one day, you can do something now…. Just do anything you can… may it be in your home, community, village, city, school, university, office anywhere…wherever you are…you can do something…. take action no matter how small it may be…. Anything you can do…..You can at least talk about it to ten people.
UNEP suggests every action counts, whether it is to organize clean-up campaigns, walk-to-work days, plastic purges, art exhibits, tree-planting drives, concerts, dance recitals, switching off the lights, recycling drives, social media campaigns and different contests — every action counts. Friends that’s why I am saying just do anything, even a small thing….
This year we are celebrating to stop global warming…..stop sea level rise and save small islands nations…
Message of United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon – “This year, I urge everyone to think about the plight of Small Island Developing States and to take inspiration from their efforts to address climate change, strengthen resilience and work for a sustainable future. Raise your voice, not the sea level. Planet Earth is our shared island. Let us join forces to protect it”.
I don’t have to explain about global warming…. We all know the causes of global warming and its impact very well….it is no more a strange word, it’s a global issue now.…. And you know very well how to stop or fight Global Warming….. So stop looking at others…. it’s time for you to act….. Do it Today or never….
We all know its impact on poor and marginalized….. Even though they hardly contribute to global warming, they are the ones, most exposed to its impact…..this is injustice!! Any kind of natural calamity strikes them the most…. Therefore, act for a resilient community and sustainable future….. Stop this injustice against the poor and future generations…Take Action… It’s up to you……
Start it now….from this Environment day…..Everyone, everywhere, everyday…..
God bless you
