AN APPEAL FROM THE DIRECTOR OF ENVIRONMENT IN VIEW OF

WORLD EARTH DAY 2017

     The theme of World Earth Day 2017 is “Environmental and Climate Literacy”.

World Earth Day is celebrated every year as an annual event by the people all across the world on 22nd of April in order to increase the awareness among people about the environment safety as well as to demonstrate the environmental protection measures.  It is celebrated to get together for solving the environmental issues for better future. During the first time celebration of the earth day millions of people shown their interest and participated to understand the motto of the event. Generally, the earth day event celebration starts with the common practice of new trees plantation in the required areas worldwide.

A group of environmental leaders organize various events and campaigns to celebrate the earth day. People take part in demonstrating the theme of clean environment in order to build a clean and healthy world to welcome new generations. Students from thousands of colleges, universities and other educational institutions actively take part in the protest against increasing earth issues such as the day to day environment deterioration, air and water pollution, ozone layer deterioration, industrialization, deforestation and etc to prevent the oil spills, set up of polluting factories, power plants, use and production of pesticides and etc. The aim of celebrating the world earth day is to inspire the public for making better earth environment. 

At this day people perform outdoor activities related to the earth safety like new trees plantation planting trees, picking up roadside waste materials, recycling of wastes, energy conservation and so many. Some people request governments to take immediate action to prevent the day by day increasing global warming and other environmental destructions.  People who participate in the event celebration, make an earth planet using green and blue colors to indicate the life of animals, plants and symbolize their natural recycling including the green house effect and global warming.  People celebrate earth day by taking part in a parade getting dressed up in flowers, plants or bugs clothes to make aware that whole environment is our real home.

            On this day, I urge all to take responsibility for joining hands with common people, government agencies, NGOs and people of all the community to create public awareness on the Environment to make Environment hassle free.
