UN World Environment Day

Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme that focuses attention on a particularly pressing environmental concern. The theme for 2017, ‘Connecting People to Nature’, urges us to get outdoors and into nature, to appreciate its beauty and to think about how we are part of nature and how intimately we depend on it. It challenges us to find fun and exciting ways to experience and cherish this vital relationship.

UN World Day to Combat Desertification

This is why world leaders made land degradation neutrality one of the targets of the Sustainable Development Goals."

UN Day to Eliminate Sexual Violence in Conflict

"Sexual violence is now widely recognized as a deliberate strategy used to shred the fabric of society; to control and intimidate communities and to force people from their homes.
