World Environment Day

World Environment Day
The environment is very pivotal as it
plays an important role in healthy living and the existence of life on planet earth. Earth is a home for different living species and we all are dependent on the environment for food, air, water, and other needs. Therefore, it is important for every individual to save and protect our environment.
The environment of Kashmir is pristine but facing many threats.
World Environment Day  is one of the biggest events celebrated every year in the world. World Environment Day is being celebrated since 1973. It is also called “People’s Day” to take care of the earth and the environment. It is really important to know the ways to protect the environment.
For a healthy life, the environment plays an important role. It provides us with air, food, etc. Someone rightly said that the difference between animals and humans is that animals change themselves for the environment, but humans change the environment for themselves. The environment is like our neighbourhood, its surrounding conditions affect us and also modify development.
The day reminds us of the environmental challenges we face, such as pollution, deforestation, climate change, and biodiversity loss. It aims to educate people about the impact of their actions on the environment.
Land restoration is a key pillar of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030), a rallying call for the protection and revival of ecosystems all around the world, which is critical to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
This is why World Environment Day 2024 focuses on land restoration, halting desertification and building drought resilience under the slogan “Our land. Our future. We are #GenerationRestoration.”
World Environment Day also in Kashmir should draw us towards attention towards saving natural resources and land forms.
