World Environment Day

5 June 2023

This is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment.

The next World Environment Day will be Monday 5 June, 2023.

World Environment Day is a day for everyone, everywhere. Since it began in 1972, global citizens have organized many thousands of events, from neighbourhood clean-ups, to action against wildlife crime, to replanting forests.
