General Awareness

World Environment Day

Come June 5 and the whole world will observe the World Environment Day (WED). Similar to earth day, this global event has assumed enormous significance over the years due to the demonic proportion of global warming on flora and fauna.

Hosted every year by a different city with a different theme, WED was initiated by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972. It aims to create awareness about climate change by involving people from all walks of life to ensure a cleaner, greener and brighter environment for themselves and the future generation.

Mankind today has rocked the peace of the earth for their insatiable needs and terms every disaster as nature's fury when it has all been man-made. They proclaim it as a natural disaster and express their inability to do anything about these calamities. Climate change has become a grave issue resulting in the melting of glaciers and Himalayas. Forests which have been home to many species of plants and animals have been depleting fast.

Moreover, climate summits held by the world leaders to create awareness about ecological issues have been so far ‘a mere babble of tongues’.

This year, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has named India, for the first time, as the global host of World Environment Day 2011, for taking the prerogative of a transition to a ‘Green Economy’. This year's theme is 'Forests: Nature at Your Service' which provides multitude of services to mankind. The theme will emphasize the intrinsic link between quality of life and health of forests and forest ecosystems.

India which is home to 1.2 billion people has been fast witnessing a depletion of forest and natural resources due to its excessive pressure on the environment. Rain forests which generate about 40% of the world’s oxygen are on the brink of extinction. When we have more forest, we have more oxygen which leads to longer life expectancy.

It’s high time we call for a corrective action plan. Although individual approach to this grave issue may seem midget in the face of global threats and trends, but one should remember when billion join hands for a common purpose, it can make a tremendous difference.

A quick and easy way to make others aware of the environmental issues is by sharing conservation ideas, organizing biodiversity film festivals and plantation event or participating in green walkathon and WED celebrations. Most importantly, forest conservation requires a staunch commitment to changing lifestyle which demands one to be forest-conscious in his choices, consumption and actions. Civil society can play a vital role by independently monitor all parties involved, raising awareness on forests and supporting grassroots initiatives.

Students in schools and colleges should organize workshops and seminars at regular intervals related to environment conservation and should involve students from all walks of life including MBA aspirants under its ambit. This issues should be further taken up in GD (group discussions) so that the coming generations remain conjoint to this issue.

Mahatma Gandhi rightly said," Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed.”
