Objective of the Celebration:-
‘ONLY ONE EARTH’ – With the theme of living sustainably in harmony with nature this year NSS-Student Chapter of RCC Institute of Information Technology celebrated “WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY” in association with COMPUTER SOCIETY OF INDIA,KOLKATA CHAPTER along with THE SCIENCE ASSOCIATION OF BENGAL with a seminar on “GREEN IT-GREEN ENVIRONMENT”.
Every year on 5th June WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY is celebrated to make people aware of the detoriating condition of our very own mother Earth. This day acts as a reminder to people to be more considerate and aware of the Earth’s existing conditions, in terms of the environment. Unfortunately as our society modernises, our environment gets affected due to the adoption of technologies and resources that are quite harmful to the environment.
The concept of celebrating World Environment Day was first conceptualised in 1972’s United Nations Conference on Human Environment that was held in Stockholm. This became the first big conference where matters of the environment were given huge importance. The United Nations Environment Programme was also created at this conference. Every year, a theme is picked out for World Environment Day that encourages people to participate in the celebration and also motivates them to follow the theme. Every year, different countries host World Environment Day. This year, Sweden is the host. This year’s theme will focus on getting the world together in harmony to advocate the idea of sustainable living.
This year was the year of extreme importance as it marks the completion of 50 years since the first conference i.e. 1972 Stockholm conference was held that initiated the stride towards achieving a better tomorrow for all, in terms of the environment. The Earth faces multiple problems such as climate change, loss of biodiversity, increase in carbon emissions and non-biodegradable wastage. With everyone’s help and one step at a time, people can make good choices and work towards sustaining the environment with the best conscious choices.
