It is under the theme “One Earth” that this World Environment Day is held. The year 2022 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stockholm conference that led to the creation of this world day on June 5th dedicated to the environment. For this reason, Sweden will be the host country for this edition in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
The theme “One Earth” was also the motto of the 1972 Stockholm Conference. It is more relevant than ever to remind us that humanity must preserve the limited resources of our planet, our only home. An approach that Pope Francis has put forward in his encyclical Laudato Si’.
This United Nations’ flagship day aims to promote awareness and action for the protection of the environment around the world. It is aimed at all publics to encourage them to take concrete actions to preserve their environment.
