Description/Abstract: News Display: World Environment Day, Monday, 6/5


World Environment Day began in 1974 and is recognized annually on June 5th as an effort by the United Nations to increase global awareness of and action towards the protection of planet Earth. It was designated by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972 in support of its Conference on the Human Environment and has addressed many many topics and concerns through the years. This year's theme is "Connecting People to Nature" -- inviting us to think about how we are a part of nature and how we depend on it.

News will feature stories about the history and themes of World Environment Day address the importance of nature, the phenomena of the physical world and everything in it.
