About World Environment Day

World Environment Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972 to mark the opening of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment. Another resolution, adopted by the General Assembly the same day, led to the creation of UNEP.

World Environment Day, commemorated each year on 5 June, is one of the principal vehicles to stimulate worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action.

In 2020, the theme is biodiversity – a concern that is both urgent and existential. Biodiversity provides the essential infrastructure supporting life on Earth and human development.
