05/06/2017: World Environment Day

On 2017 World Environment Day, hosted by Canada, the UN has tried to make the United States’ decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change not too prominent.

This year’s motto 2017 (‘Connecting People to Nature’) encourages us to go out into the open air and into nature to appreciate its beauty and to think about how we are an integral part and how much we depend on it.

In relation to this day, it should not be forgotten that the UN seeks to reduce marine pollution and conserve the oceans, which absorb approximately 30% of the carbon dioxide produced by humans.
