World Environment Day 2017 Celebration in Schools

Environment has been an issue of significance as well as concern and needs to be addressed by the society at large. Developing a greater understanding of the core environmental issues among students will help to inculcate desired ethics and values. They will be able to recognize the importance of preservation and protection of environment.

World Environment Day, observed on 05th June every year, is the United Nations’ principle vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment. The theme for World Environment Day, 2017 is “Connecting People to Nature“.

The schools may conduct appropriate activities to commemorate ‘World Environment Day’ for promoting environmental awareness within the school premises on 05th June, 2017 or within the first week after opening of their schools (in case the schools are closed on 05th June, 2017).
