UNECE celebrating World Environment Day 2015

Sustainable development is high on the United Nations agenda this year. To stand up for sustainable development and environmental protection, UNECE is contributing to World Environment Day celebrations taking place in Geneva from 3 to 5 June 2015. World Environment Day, celebrated annually on 5 June, is the principal vehicle of the United Nations for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment. This year’s theme —"Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care." — seeks to encourage us to live sustainably, doing more and better with less. This is the most promising strategy for ensuring a healthy future — so that human prosperity need not, literally, cost the earth.

To celebrate World Environment Day 2015 at the Palais des Nations, UNECE is holding an event featuring a policy debate, the screening of a documentary and the opening of a cartoon exhibition. Join us in celebrating World Environment Day 2015. For more information, please visit: http://www.unece.org/index.php?id=39798#/
