So, today everyone is celebrating World Environment Day 2020 on Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and other social networking platforms. Those were the days when we as kids celebrated World Environment Day in schools.
Our teachers use to form troops of students and assign various tasks to us. Some of them were assigned to prepare a good presentation on awareness and importance of trees, water, and environment. Some of them were asked to prepare a drama on life with trees; some of them were assigned to bring plant saplings. 5thJune is celebrated as Environmental day globally and we used to gather in our campus with the help of teacher and fellow class mates.
Even today so many organisations and schools are arranging various campaigns to save environment and most of them end after few photographs and selfies with plants. We really do not understand the values of environment and wasting natural resources with closed eyes.
In real, we should teach our children the value of environment and entice them to take care of environment every day. After plantations, we should take care of plats for at least 6-8 months; we should feed them with Compost so it can grow properly.
Today, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, requested citizens to maintain planet’s biodiversity. He posted below message on twitter;
“On #WorldEnvironmentDay, we reiterate our pledge to preserve our planet’s rich biodiversity. Let us collectively do whatever possible to ensure the flora and fauna with whom we share the Earth thrive. May we leave an even better planet for the coming generations.” – Narendra Modi on Twitter
Environmental day was celebrated in 1974 first time in USA. The tradition transferred to whole world and after 46 years whole world is celebrating World Environment Day. This year, due to Covid-19 pandemic people are cinched in the four walls of the home and usual celebrations may not be done but we can assure ourselves by taking care of existing plants. Just like exercise and praying, we should add environment care in our daily schedule.
Although, outdoor celebration is not being upheld worldwide, various organisations are expected to conduct online activities to promote environmental protection.
Bush fires in Australia, fires in Amazon forest, pollution level everything is a lesson to us and feels like hint given by God to us that if we don’t protect our Environment, it will be difficult for us and following generations to rove a life on earth.
