World Environment Day 2008

Every year since 1972 this day is celebrated on June 5 in a different host country featuring a different theme. The World Environment Day slogan for 2008 is Kick the Habit! Towards a Low Carbon Economy with the emphasis on taking action towards reducing greenhouse gases . The main international celebrations of World Environment Day 2008 will be held in New Zealand.

People are being encouraged to be environmentally friendly to live a greener life. We've heard a lot about global warming, recycling, reducing wastes and ways to conserve the environment. Stand up to Climate Change are asking people to select which change to their routine they will be making to help prepare for Climate Change – from saving water to helping prepare against floods.

Let us all do our part to combat global warming. The future of all life on earth depends on us. Each of us can bring an important role in adopting a more responsible and healthy lifestyle by doing basic things such as turning off the lights or appliances when not in use. That's one of the reasonable ways to save our earth, before it is too late.

Remember the three R's - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Check out the World Environment Day website for more details and activities.
