Go Wild For Life
World Environment Day is a great day that we can all get together and learn about our environment. Areas are doing this through arts and crafts exhibitions, film festival, competitions, demonstration activities, drama, poetry, as well as on social media.
You may be wondering what World Environment Day or WED is The United Nations created a day to encourage a worldwide awareness and action for protection to take care of our environment. Starting in 1974 a global platform for public outreach was created that is now celebrated in over 100 countries
Attention is drawn to the fact that we can all make a change. A change to take care of our Earth in local, nationally or globally environments. It does not matter if you stand alone or join in a group. It is your choice to choose to participate what you will do. The WED theme for 2016 is 'GoWild for Life'. Attention is focused on illegal trade in wildlife. Each year along with a theme a country is selected as well. This year the country of Angola has been chosen.
