Water is health. Clean hands can save a life. Water is nature. Ecosystems lie at the heart of the global water cycle. Water is Urbanization. Every week one million people move into cities. Water is industry. More water is needed to manufacture a car than a swimming pool. Water is energy. Water and Energy are inseparable friends. Water if food. To produce a steak you need 15000 liters of water. Water is equality. Everyday women spend million of hours carrying water. World Water day is celebrated every year on the 22 of March all across the world. The day was established to be celebrated as an annual event in the year 1993 by the decision of the United Nations General Assembly. This Campaign was declared as a World Day for Water to be celebrated on this date to increase the awareness of people about the importance, need, conservation of water. People are encouraged to listen and understand the water issues. Water is a finite and irreplaceable resource that is fundamental to human well-being. It is only renewable if well managed. Today, more than 1.7 billion people live in river basins where depletion through use exceeds natural recharge, a trend that will see two-thirds of the world's population living in water- stressed countries by 2025. Water can pose a serious challenge to sustainable development but managed efficiently and equitably, water can play a key enabling role in strengthening the resillience of social, economic and environmental systems in the light of rapid and unpredictable changes. World water day, is a day to celebrate, a day to change and a day to prepare. It is celebrated by organizing variety of events and activities such as visual art, theatrical and musical celebrations of water, excursions, distributing messaged through TV and radio channels or internet, educational events based on the importance of clean water and conservative measure, competitions and so many activities. Today, the Loretto College of Curepipe is proud to say that for the past years we have not missed to celebrate this special day. A short video, was prepared by the Form 5 members of the LCC GO GREEN CLUB and presented to the whole school. In this Video, the importance of water was shown and it emphasized on how lucky we are, to have water at our reach. Living in a Multicultural country, the Upper six students prepared a sketch to show the importance of water in their respective religions : Christians, the Baptism, Muslims, the ablutions and Hindus, the sacred water- dance. Furthermore, stickers with the symbol representing water was distributed to commemorate the World Water Day 2015 and a prayer was said, to thank nature for giving us water.

End of the land, the sea boundary, we call it as “gepul(tidal flats)” “Gepul”(tidal flat) is a combined word, “pul” which means a wide field, and “ge” which means the place river or water comes in and goes out November 15, 2014 in front of Ewha Womans' University Cultural Center, we took a bus headed for the Seosan Ojiri. Meanwhile, I was not aware there was a sea town. This town is very small and there were no facilities for convenience at all. The place reminds me of the childhood memories. I’ve been this west coast often before, and with some tools, I explored Jebudo tidal flat and catched many shells. . Anyway, at this time, it was foreshore marine biological research participation program. It was started with listening to the explanation of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and Ocean marine ecosystem Dr. Kim Tae-won. Our plan was this. Observing the creatures that don’t act when the water is high because of many predators. These creatures do their work after the water level is low. How the organisms that live in the tidal flats was to investigate the living creatures living on tidal flats that connects the upper and lower observation and find its mark. In this exploration, I was so impressed to the activity so called the non-intrusive activities. Observing carefully just with hands and to be returned, not by using of artificial tools that could cause some damages to the living organisms on tidal flats. And a little regret about my old days. Why did I pick some matsogeum(kind of salt) to spread out for catching some shell. Now I know that could be a wrong way. Traces of barnacles were beautiful. And we found Sora made some specially amazing past look. Sora was drawing very sharp lines as they are moving on foreshore. And we discovered several unknown creatures, so we spent time for searching their name in the book. Some of us did fall in tidal flat. It was painful to get their feet out of line, but also playful. And after listening to Sanha Kim, the Provost's words, I felt sorry for a moment. Because we could hit the mischievous creature to the injury or death. . One of my friend Na Hyun said it was the time to think of the importance of a habitat living place watching the living organism in rubber clothes abandoned to the idea of a habitat important. I agree with her. I learned the importance of habitat protection through this exploration of biological activity Observing the animal's behavior is what we need to do. However, I realized this saying deeply. The behaviors of all animals was determined by animals themselves.. Seongnamdong Middle School 2 Baik SeungHyeop

For the weekend of the Republic Day, around 1500 young people discovered that they could make a difference and collected 9000 litres of trash from the lungs of Bangalore. The Youth Development Program, an initiative of FSL India gathered 60 volunteers and organised a campaign to keep lalbagh clean. The Keep Lalbagh Clean campaign, now in its fourth edition, attempts to get visitors to the park to contribute 20 min of their time to pick up trash and clean the park. Through this, the volunteers hope to change attitudes and bring a sense of ownership of their public spaces. A participant said: “ When I saw all the trash I felt helpless, and what was worse, hopeless. But once I started picking up trash with my blue garbage bag I was surprised to see how everyone from small children to adults were happy to pick up something and put it in my bag for nothing more than a smile and a thank you”. The YDP is an initiative of FSL made to spread the word of volunteering, empowering youth to be the change that they want to see in the world. Being run entirely by the youth of Bangalore, voluntarily, it aims at introducing new soft skills and training youth to host workshops and projects. A core member said, “ It was uplifting to see so many people who were willing to work together to make the world a better place.”

Este evento que se organiza el día 5 de junio, día del medio ambiente, para proteger La Vega de Granada (zona verde) acoge de manera creativa y atractiva, desde 2013, una protesta para la protección de La Vega en forma de concierto con grandes artistas nacionales, quiénes en su mayoría han nacido en la provincia de Granada. El territorio de La Vega de Granada se caracteriza por su llanura y ha sido un motor natural socio económico para los municipios de la comarca y la provincia a lo largo de la historia. Este variado patrimonio cultural está presente en obras científicas, literarias y especialmente en la conciencia de sus habitantes. Sin embargo en la Vega de Granada el insostenible modelo de desarrollo actual ha desarticulado este vínculo secular y deja como resultado la destrucción de suelos, paisajes, vegetación, patrimonio poniendo en peligro el necesario equilibrio ecológico y la rica biodiversidad vegetal y animal que posee. Este proceso de degradación ambiental contradice el espíritu de nuestras leyes que defienden políticas orientadas “a la protección del medio ambiente, la conservación de la biodiversidad, así como de la riqueza y variedad paisajística de Andalucía, para el disfrute de todos los andaluces y andaluzas en su legado a las generaciones venideras” Un evento ya popular en la ciudad y que acoge cada año a un gran número de personas, a nivel nacional, para unirse a favor de mantener La Vega como el paisaje natural que ha sido siempre.

Afin de mettre l'accent sur l'importance de la protection de l'environnement, le développement durable et la préservation des ressources dans les îles, un championnat du monde de golf, sport individuel le plus pratiqué dans le monde, sera dorénavant organisé chaque année sur une île partenaire afin d'attirer l'attention du public sur l'importance de préserver les îles, véritables joyaux de notre planète. En effet, leur contribution au monde est unique : des peuples et des traditions ancestrales, des patrimoines irremplaçables, des cultures et des écosystèmes riches, une biodiversité rare, des paysages éblouissants et des destinations touristiques très prisées. Cette biodiversité constitue un patrimoine naturel de premier plan mondial, mais aussi un élément essentiel du potentiel économique, social et culturel de ces territoires. Ces îles peuvent devenir des pôles d’excellence en matière de développement durable, que ce soit dans le domaine de la protection et de la gestion durables de la biodiversité, du développement de filières innovantes, ou du développement des énergies renouvelables. Ce championnat, en individuel et par équipes, regroupera les meilleurs golfeurs et golfeuses amateurs, originaires des îles du monde entier. Cet événement bénéficiera d'une couverture médiatique d'envergure et se tiendra une fois par an, le 5 juin, lors de la journée mondiale de l'environnement initiée par l’ONU. Notons qu'en 2014, les petits Etats insulaires en développement (PEID) étaient à l'honneur face aux problèmes liés aux changements climatiques. Lors de leur inscription, chaque participant approuvera la charte "éco-citoyenne" disponible sur le site internet de l'événement et s'engagera à respecter les critères de bonne conduite pour l'environnement. Après validation, le participant pourra obtenir son passeport électronique "Green Islands". Pour soutenir les joueurs et valoriser leur engagement pour la protection des îles, de nombreuses personnalités du monde économique, politique, du show biz et des sportifs de haut niveau participeront en tant qu'ambassadeurs de la manifestation. Avec cette diversité de nationalités, d'identités et de cultures, ce championnat sera aussi une véritable aventure humaine et l'occasion de rencontres et d'échanges entre tous les participants venus soutenir le drapeau de leur île. Ce championnat se déroulera dans un des états insulaires ci après, ayant une politique volontariste en matière d'environnement, et souhaitant devenir partenaire de cet événement. Les zones insulaires pouvant accueillir le championnat, sont les 9 Régions Ultra-Périphériques (RUP), les 25 Pays et Territoires d’Outre-Mer (PTOM) européens, les 52 Petits Etats Insulaires en Développement (PEID).

POSTER NIKAAL As we get out of our homes and into the city, we find traffic jams, noise, pollution and to add to this claustrophobic feeling are these haphazard posters stuck on walls. Its just like chaos every where. There are banners and posters spewed randomly everywhere, causing frustrations, but we don’t do anything to change things, except cursing the government, or the local municipalities. Its high time we bring some order to this chaos. Is there a solution? BTW, It takes just a few seconds to get down from the vehicle and tear the illegal posters hanging or pasted to the trees and walls. Why do we have posters everywhere? Defacing walls is a common practice, and its an easy and cheap way to advertise. In this electronic world, its high time people use social media and free advertising portals to spread messages and spare the walls in our city. Did you know that putting posters randomly on walls, trees etc is illegal and an offence? Can we raise our voices? Can we take steps to make this a better cleaner city to live in? Just go out and take a walk, and watch the banners, posters all over the city – people selling services PAN cards, IT returns, Body massages, sleazy film posters, parties, music shows, astrologers, RTO agents, LIC agents phew... …this list is just endless. Now that you saw all that, did you enjoy the sight? Can you do something about it? YES WE CAN. START THE CAMPAIGN “POSTER NIKAAL” REMOVE EXISTING POSTERS / BANNERS IN YOUR LOCALITY FEARLESSLY. Why have we accepted these posters as a norm. Try removing these !! Trust me it gives immense satisfaction to clean the city. I started it today morning, and could finish one full road in 30 minutes flat. So if we spread this message and make a collective effort, ie. if every citizen steps out of their houses and removes posters within 10-20 meters of their building, we will be able to clean Mumbai in a few minutes. Lets all pledge to take part in this drive and make this city a better place to live in!!

World Environment Day was observed at Oil India, Electrical Engineering Department, on the 5th of June, 2014. This year, the Rig Electrical Section coordinated the events, and the result was a well attended and much appreciated event. The theme of this year was our rising seas, with the tag line “Raise your voice, not the sea level”. The event was coordinated worldwide by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and we did our bit by spreading the message amongst our industry mates, as well as the surrounding populace. Though we live far from the seas, we are nevertheless familiar with the effects of flooding, and can thus empathise with the inhabitants of coastal areas, who stand to lose a lot. Several active initiatives were undertaken to spread awareness about the environment. To conserve and promote the green cover of our surrounding areas, a tree plantation drive was undertaken, and local tree varieties were planted at various locations in and around our operational areas. In the evening, several videos were screened, highlighting the initiatives taken by local green warriors like Jadav Payeng, who single handedly planted a forest because he was disturbed by the fact of decreasing shelter for animals in the modern world. The importance of preserving the environment, as well as the global connection, was also stressed by lectures and photo exhibitions.

NWNC- World Environment Day 2014 As part of the Sri Lanka Navy’s community development and social responsibility project, the North Western Naval Command launched a mangrove planting project in accordance with the 2014 world environment day’s theme, “Raise your voice, Not the sea level’’, on 05th June 2014 under the patronage of Commander North Western Naval Area, Rear Admiral Dayananda Nanayakkara. The Command Medical Department of the North Western Naval Area has joined hands with Tokyo Cement Company [Lanka] PLC to uplift the environment in the North Western Naval Area as a prime social responsibility. Rapid destruction of mangroves by harmful human activities has led to coastal erosion, worsening effects of tsunami, reduction in sea food harvesting, air pollution, sea water pollution, increase in global warming, destruction of bio-diversity and imbalance in environmental sustainability. Under the mangrove planting project, 500 plants will be planted under natural environmental conditions at Kalpitiya lagoon, Kala-oya and Modaragan-aru estuary as the first step. A mangrove plants nursery has also been set up at SLNS Vijaya in Kalpitiya with the technical assistance of Tokyo Cement Company to assist the project.

We are students of MGSS Moka ( Mahatma Gandhi Secondary School OF MOKA IN MAURITIUS). Yesterday was 2nd October, as every year my school celebrate the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi by the aim to spread the teachings of the Mahatma for a better fairy world without violence and full with peace and friendship. 2nd October is also known as the day of non-violence by the United Nations. So yesterday our school welcomed approximately a hundred of disable and old people among which some were abandoned by their children. It was a very emotional day for us (the students, teaching and non-teaching staffs). The guests were entertained by a cultural show which included traditional indian dances, prayers, singers. The amazing parts was when dumb students of a dumb school gave a shocking dance performance on the stage and the public gave a standing ovation and secondly a disable sang a very heart-touching song. The girl will be soon singing in Paris during a UNESCO concert. After the memorial cultural show, the guest were guided by the students of my school holding their hands with lots of love for lunch in a classroom. The classroom was very well decorated by volunteers. The guests were served briani ( a very famous eastern dish) accompanied with a traditional chutney and cucumber salad. The guest were gifted flowers and many other useful things which were bought from the money collected by donations from people. Then at last all the students gathered and the talented boys played famous Mauritian instruments including jiambe and ravane ending in a beautiful sega and all the guest gladly danced with our students.

We made two panels which present World Environment Day and question investigation about our high school student's awareness of environment and process of generation of electricity. We displayed each of them in 1st grade's hall and 2nd grade's hall. Many people had interested on it and participated in. In the question investigation, we questioned 'Do you turn off you electric heating appliance?', 'What is the degree when you turn on the air conditioner?' and 'Do you turn off the light when you go out?'. We made these questions cause our school is dormitory type school. At the end, we displayed the result of investigation and our comments on the newspaper that we, the school department of environment publishes. And cause people don't know well about process of generation of electricity, many people don't save electricity. We decided to show the process and let the students know that it isn't easy to generate electricity. Also, we made UCC for WED. http://youtu.be/BRZZd9ZwyS0 ?This is the UCC address. We played it in each class. Everyone was pleaded and had some awareness of environmental activities. It was good time for us and whole students. Thank you :)

Buenos días, soy docente de un Jardín de Quilmes, Buenos Aires, y quería contarles que desde mi sección, donde estoy con nenes de 2 años abordamos el Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente valorando y cuidando nuestras plantas. Al ser niños tan pequeños es difícil abordar lo que es el mundo entero, pero con mucho trabajo aprendieron a respetar nuestras plantas, sabiendo lo importante que es su función para nuestro planeta. Además cada uno creo su propia plantita con el fin de contribuir desde nuestro pequeño lugar. Todos quedamos muy contentos y los aprendizajes fueron fructíferos y notorios. Quería que sepan que desde aquí y con niños tan chiquitos, ya estamos colaborando con el cuidado de nuestro Medio Ambiente! Muchas gracias por seguir sumando contribuciones. Saluda atte.

Samanala Kanda forest reserve conservation project – By Quantum Green Team : It is a great pleasure to share with you one of the environment conservation projects completed by the Green Team of Quantum Clothing (Lanka) Pvt Ltd. QCL is a garment factory situated in Horana, Sri Lanka. We are ISO 14001 certified and received Marks & Spencer Eco Factory status due to the effort taken to conserve and improve the environment. The Quantum Green Team (QGT) identified the importance of conservation of “Samanala Kanda” (Adam’s Peak) forest reserve for future generation. Since the main threat is the abandoned polythene which are brought by the average of 3 million pilgrims during the pilgrimage season, We decided to make an effort to collect them and clean the forest reserve at their strength as a company CSR project. We planned the project with the entire QGT and also communicated the regarding the project via “Quantum FM” among the employees having an interest on the environmental conservation. A group of 29 heads gathered together. Plan was to collect all the non-degrading artificial items into bags (50 kg Rice bags) and bring them down and hand over to the local government of Nallathanniya, for recycling. Filling 50 nos of empty bags was their target. An NGO called “Mihithala Mithuro” who committed their activities on forest conservation, also joined with Quantum Green Team on this event. In the morning the polythene collection project was started from the zenith of sacred Sri Pada Mountain and initially the team split into two groups. All the ladies and several males were in one group. They was advised to collect all the polythene were along the track. They started their mission and the young gang was allocated for collecting polythene besides the track in the forest. They had a rope to climb and access the unreachable areas of the forest. There were plenty of polythene to collect. Not only polythene, but also plastic bottles which was identified as the biggest threat and broken slippers. They had 25 bags and all of them we fully filled even before reaching the end of “Maha Giri Damba” track. Their task was complete. Brought down the filled bags with tied up bag openings. The first team also had collected 15 bags. Altogether, 40 of 50kg rice bags were full in polythene and other non-degrading bits and pieces. As Quantum Green Team we are really proud of the hard effort we could take on conservation of the Sri Pada forest reserve but the solution indeed lies on addressing the root cause of discarding garbage responsibly by the pilgrims. If all we bring down the polythene and plastic we bring in as pilgrims, then there will not be a need to clean-up.

Greetings from Kathir Educational Institutions, Coimbatore, India! KATHIR EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS (KEI) in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India, function under the patronage of the LAMIKA Educational and Charitable Trust, which was established during the year 2006 with a noble cause of imparting World Class quality education for the poor and the deprived people in the Society. Mr. E.S. KATHIR, the Founder Chairman of the Trust is an Industrialist and Mrs. LAVANYA KATHIR, the Secretary of the Trust is an Educationalist. KEI have a set of core values like Care, Innovation, Passion and Trust, for spreading smiles among the deprived society by rendering comprehensive community welfare and developmental programmes. In connection with the “World environment day” celebrations in Kathir institutions on 5th June, 2014, as per the vision of UNEP, “Small Island Developing States and Climate Change”, while the slogan is ‘Raise Your Voice, Not the Sea Level’, in order to raise awareness about the impact of climate change on small islands states around the world. This year we have developed some other newer green concepts and solutions, in addition to our tree sapling planting activities. One of the easiest and effective methods of saving electricity in our home is by changing the lighting from the old style incandescent bulbs to the CFL- Lighting system. Besides saving money, consuming less electricity will enable the thermal power stations to burn less quantity of coal for producing electricity. Therefore, burning less coal releases less greenhouse gas pollution and helps to slow down disastrous global climate change and reduces overall carbon footprint and this awareness is given in full concentration especially to the younger generation. HENCE, WE EARNESTLY REQUEST UNEP AUTHORITIES TO APPROVE OUR CONTRIBUTIONS FOR THE PROTECTION OF OUR ENVIRONMENT AND THE SOCIETY AND SUPPORT OUR ACTIVITIES BY HOSTING OUR PHOTOGRAPH AND MESSAGE IN THE UNEP WEBSITE AND ENCOURAGE US TO DO PROCEED STILL BETTER IN THE NEAR FUTURE. This will motivate us further to dedicate our self in our mission towards protecting our global environment. We will be more than happy to explore various collaboration opportunities to ensure global success. Thank you and best wishes.

Kiev (Kyiv) , Ukraine

KPMG in Ukraine hosts an interactive seminar on implementing social projects in Ukraine On 5 June, KPMG in Kiev hosted an interactive seminar on implementing social projects in Ukraine, to mark World Environment Day. Social projects can be effective only if they are systematic and long-term in scope, as opposed to one-off initiatives, and the dialogue on the implementation of "green" projects needs to involve not only businesses, but also scientists, media and local and international organisations. Accordingly, the seminar organizers, KPMG in Ukraine and the Ukraine office of SOCAR (the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic), invited representatives of the UN Global Compact and the OSCE in Ukraine, the Embassy of Azerbaijan, the Ukrainian Public Relations League, and businesses and higher education institutions. "The opportunity to discuss 'green' issues with representatives of various social institutions – business, the media, culture, education and international organisations, gives one an incredibly broader understanding of events, individual projects and ideas being implemented here (in Ukraine) and now, and provides practical examples of initiatives that can be joined in with on both a personal and company level," said KPMG partner Dmitry Aleev. "Commercial and not-for-profit organisations together can create unique social projects, simultaneously involving employees in different countries to protect the environment, for the sake of mutual understanding and the future of the planet." "The active discussion of best practices in social project implementation in Ukraine confirms that socially responsible businesses, active NGOs, the media and concerned and active individuals clearly understand that social projects can and must be implemented for the public good," agreed Yaroslav Yurtsaba, National Project Manager at OSCE Project Coordinator in Ukraine. He also emphasised that demand for educational environmental projects in Ukraine is growing fast: as an example, he cited Green Pack, an educational programme that has been running for a number of years in many European countries with the aim of promoting environmental awareness and environmentally responsible behaviour among children in primary and middle schools. This programme has now been adapted to the requirements of the Ukrainian education system. Marina Ergemlidze, Press Secretary at SOCAR Ukraine, talked about how 'green' projects can be used to support soft power objectives. For example, the company is now building what will Ukraine's third Azerbaijan-themed park, as well as developing a programme for greening the landscape around its filling stations and selling original Azerbaijani products made from natural ingredients at them. "Environmental projects are part of our company's social policy. They focus on one hand on actions that benefit the public, and on the other on actions that improve the perception of Azerbaijan in the eyes of the global community," said Marina.

KENYAN MOTOCROSS RIDERS ADD THEIR VOICE AGAINST SEA LEVEL ARISE Close to 50 Kenyan motocross riders and their families celebrated the World Environment Day in conjunction with a National Motox race at the Jamhuri Motocross Circuit on 22 June 2014. The event aimed at raising environmental awareness of climate change by highlighting the devastating consequences of sea level rise to the Small Island Developing States and other countries amongst them Kenya with its 600 km of shoreline and several key towns located in the low lying coastal areas. While acknowledging that motorcycling has a significant carbon footprint, the riders planted indigenous trees which we dedicated to the respective Mx-classes for their regular upkeep. In transforming toward more sustainable lifestyles pledges for environmental actions were presented by all Mx-teams . In addition to motocross racing, the Mx- classes competed in Cleaning-up the Jamhuri circuit surroundings. Several bags of litter were collected reminding the riders, their families and the general public to be more mindful in waste management and recycling in the future get-togethers. It was the smallest Mx riders in the 50cc class who emerged as the winners whilst the Mx-65 and Mx-85 classes scored 2nd and 3rd positions.

North Western Naval Command launches a mangrove planting project to mark World Environment Day 2014 Home » Event News » North Western Naval Command launches a mangrove planting project to mark World Environment Day 2014 As part of the Sri Lanka Navy’s community development and social responsibility project, the North Western Naval Command launched a mangrove planting project in accordance with the 2014 world environment day’s theme, “Raise your voice, Not the sea level’’, on 05th June 2014 under the patronage of Commander North Western Naval Area, Rear Admiral Dayananda Nanayakkara. The Command Medical Department of the North Western Naval Area has joined hands with Tokyo Cement Company [Lanka] PLC to uplift the environment in the North Western Naval Area as a prime social responsibility. Rapid destruction of mangroves by harmful human activities has led to coastal erosion, worsening effects of tsunami, reduction in sea food harvesting, air pollution, sea water pollution, increase in global warming, destruction of bio-diversity and imbalance in environmental sustainability. Under the mangrove planting project, 500 plants will be planted under natural environmental conditions at Kalpitiya lagoon, Kala-oya and Modaragan-aru estuary as the first step. A mangrove plants nursery has also been set up at SLNS Vijaya in Kalpitiya with the technical assistance of Tokyo Cement Company to assist the project.

The 2014 World Environment Day (WED) is a day to remember globally, as it is the day for strengthening commitment through action to protect planet earth. Thus year's theme on" Small Island Developing States" called for us all to "raise our voice not the sea level". To commemorate 2014 WED, MitiMeth engaged in an awareness and action exercise in Methodist Grammar School, Ojurin, Bodija, Ibadan, Nigeria. We shared the message of mitigating carbon emission that increases green house gases in the atmosphere. These green house gases causes the earth's temperature to rise - causing an increase in sea level. Local action that we encouraged students on was upcycling of empty PET-bottles into bango. PET-bottles are among the most utilized form of packaging for table water and beverage drinks in Nigeria. They are often disposed indiscriminately along the roads, water ways and drainages. Students who were guided by Mitimeth staff, participated in the creative craft work and made bangos themselves. The activities was facilitated by staff of MitiMeth Nigeria (An Ecofriendly Hand Crafts organization) and Greennovative Chain Consulting. Highlights are shown in the picture.

At Pastures Way Nursery School, we had fun learning about islands. We looked at photos of real islands and 'built' islands with a range od materials. We had an interesting time finding out what happened to an island of sand when we added too much water. The children were concerned to see that the island they had built disappeared. We also explained to the children that when we waste water it ends up in our seas and rivers we asked what they thought would happen to real islands in the sea and one child said “It will make islands go away!”

FAsCE INDIA TAKES STEPS TOWARDS PRESERVING OUR GREENS FAsCE India in collaboration with Assam Social Forestry celebrated the World Environment Day on 05.06.2014 at FAsCE India Head Quarters, Guwahati in a fitting manner. Activities like plantation of saplings and generating awareness on environmental sustainability through various programmes marked the observance of the Day. The observance was in keeping with the global theme for this year’s World Environment Day, ‘Raise your voice, not the sea level’. Around 300 women gathered at the office premises to celebrate the day. Over the years FAsCE India has leveraged its 600 Self Help Groups across Northeast India to do all what they can to protect environment. FAsCE India has initiated numerous programmes in its operational areas to fight climate change and threats to the environment. One of its flagship programmes during 2014-16 is to provide solar lanterns and promote specially designed smokeless choola that needs only twigs to burn and not firewood, to 2000 families in the interior villages across Northeast India, thereby teaching them to tap renewable energy sources and protect the environment and trees. This programme was inaugurated today. Dr. Emmanuel Mappilaparambil, Director, FAsCE India, planted saplings at the premises of FAsCE India head quarters to flag off the programme.

DIRECTLY TAKEN ACTION: I ordered soil plates around 100 which wil carry the water which we pour in it about 400 ml in it and which cannot move when we keep at a place anywhere. I distributed them to many of our township residents to fill & feed water for birds, sometimes if the plate is out side then dogs etc. also. It is my thought I got when I saw this in facebook. several people sharing this 'feed water to birds this summer' but what is the use of sharing such things ? I thought it should be meterialised. I went to that worker who make this pots with soi, ordered them, bought them, brought them to my township and distributed them in my township DEEPANJALINAGAR, PARAWADA MANDAL, VISAKHKAPATNAM DISTRICT,531020, AP, INDIA. I got full satisfaction when birds, dogs etc are taking water from feeding pots. I spent the amount from my pocket which is verymuch affordable to me. INDIRECTLY TAKEN ACTION: It is my own thought implemented last academic session ended. I asked my club and I taken permission to identify a place for Books Exchange Center(BEC) taken a little place, for exchange of books from class V to class XII and I informed to all township residents to go there with their kids books and drop their old year books and pick any of the required next year books from that center. Then I informed all my residents to use that. This is also a successful programme. With this I sincearly feel several books i.e. paper i.e. indirectly trees were preserved with a simple exchange with the people who don't know where to exchange. I sincerely feel these things which was done purely by me may save planet earth. This is my actual satisfaction. THANKING YOU. T. DHATRISH KUMAR, B-149, NTPC-SIMHADRI, 531020(A.P.) INDIA.

The Global Energy Parliament organized a program called "Let it SHINE" on World Environment Day. Members of our organization conducted the program in schools in their own countries, including India, USA, France, Germany and UAE. We visited classrooms to talk with children about how our inner environment affects the outer environment, and if we keep our physical body, thoughts and emotions pure, this positive energy radiates out to the outer environment. Children picked up on the idea very quickly and loved to think about how they are connected to the outer world. They drew pictures of their own inner environments, planted trees and had speeches. The Founder of the Global Energy Parliament, H.H. Swami Isa gave a speech to the Isa Viswa Vidyalayam school in India as children were presented with saplings. He told that just as we have to water a newly planted tree, we also have to continue to think good thoughts and hear good sounds in order for them to take root inside of us. Lady Carla Davis MPH of Australia, Minister of Environment for the Global Energy Parliament, congratulated everyone on their participation.

WED Celebration in Central Himalaya CEE Himalaya in collaboration with JSW Foundation, Swiss Agency for Development & Cooperation, and RCE Srinagar organized the World Environment Day (WED) on June 5, 2014 at Ujeli, Uttarkashi, Uttarakhand. Unlike the last few years’ practice of celebrating the WED with children or community, this year’s celebrations were dedicated to the mule owners and operators of Uttarkashi who had played a commendable role in the 16-17 June 2013 Uttarakhand disaster that resulted from the cloudburst leading to subsequent flashfloods and landslides. This disaster led to huge loss of human lives, property and infrastructure. In the WED celebration 20 mule operators and owners with their 52 mules participated in the program. The CEE team, during WED celebration, stressed the fact that mules are an important mode of transport during emergencies as well as during normal life. While the mules are easiest, pollution free, environment friendly means of transport, they are very useful at the time of emergencies, landslides and floods when roads get destroyed, cut off and other modes of transport don’t work that are a common occurrence in the hilly areas. The mule owners and operators are a poor community and therefore needs to be addressed on priority. The mule operators and their mules served as the backbone of the rescue and relief work carried on by the government and other humanitarian agencies. They not only rescued people but also carried heavy packets of relief material supplied by the government while no other means of transport could operate in the heavy water flow and severely damaged roads. The WED celebration was organized at the convenience of the mule operators and therefore the event started at 6:00 AM. During the day they work and they would not like to lose their wages. It was for the first time that such an event was organized for mule operators and an agency engaged them for such an event. There was great enthusiasm and the mule owners had reached the venue before time. They were very eager and keen to attend the program and attending such an event for the first time they were curious as well as skeptical. Through the WED celebration CEE tried to create awareness, made them realize their importance and provided them a platform to share their problems and difficulties. The participants were introduced to the WED celebration, local environmental issue and sustainable mountain development in their own simple language. A discussion was organized around the errors that human being have made during the course of development.

Last year also we participated in the WED and this year as well. We gathered together in the office premises and briefed to all about WED. We briefed about the waste and its management as well. We briefed about the segregation of waste so that it could be re-used, re-cycled etc., after the briefing, we went to our greenery area and cleaned it properly, we watered the plants and trees. last year we had participated with Emirates Environmental Group and had won a TREE in the name of our company. After cleaning the greenery area we went to our diesel filling bay and cleaned it properly. we checked whether the leakage is happening or not. Our diesel filling bay is completely concreted and there is no chance of soil contamination. After this we went to our buses washing bay which is run by recycled water supply. We cleaned that area too. there were 4 groups going around collecting PAPER, PLASTIC, METAL and GLASS. After the collection, we put all the collection to segregation drums and later on those were sent to the waste collection centre of EEG.

World Environment Day Project With Global Participants This design project by Anand Prakash involved 175 different newspaper brands that were sent by over 100 participants in 40 languages from across the world. All newspapers were dated 5th of June 2013 and sent by participants for recycling into products. These newspapers were recycled and made into products using recycled paper, recycled wood and recycled metal. The range of products that we created from these newspapers were released on World Environment Day, 5th of June 2014 Each participant received products made from these old newspapers. Shikha Lamba who sent us newspapers from Hong Kong wrote: I wanted to contribute my 2 cents to your creative process. I love the idea of creating re-cycled products with an important global theme of recycling, where people from all over have contributed and have been a part of the process. I find the idea very creative like all your other ideas. I most appreciate you getting a whole community (spread all over the world) involved in your project. Renu Bhagwat who sent us newspapers from Jaipur wrote: I am an architect and Urban Planner from CEPT University. Right from my post graduation days we used to celebrate 5th June ‘World Environment Day’ in some way or other like awareness campaigns, discussions, seminars, workshops etc. Participating in 5th of June newspaper idea is like celebrating World Environment Day in very unique way. And that celebration can be with us not only on 5th June but for a long long period till we have the beautifully designed product with us or with whom we have gifted it to. The idea of using 5th June World Environment day newpaper to make recycled products in Scriptum range by Mr. Anand Prakash is very innovative and unique. This product range will keep reminding us about our environment and keep our concerns about environment always fresh. Ritu Kakkar who sent us newspapers from the United Kingdom wrote: I got involved in this project because I think it is very important to support the recycling and reuse of materials. Our environment has given so much to us and it is very alarming to see it suffering at our hands, which is why I think it’s great to see people making an active effort to be more eco-friendly and to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill. This project is a very creative way to encourage people to be ‘greener’ and think twice before throwing something away. Marianne A. SIMONIN who sent us newspapers from the United Kingdom wrote: The project mentioned the environment, though I was not aware that 5th of June was environment day, but I liked the idea that people from different parts of the world could contribute to this noble cause.

On the hills overlooking Consett Bay, on the rugged east coast of Barbados, sits an old building with a modern education system. The Codrington School offers all three world-renowned International Baccalaureate Programmes and as an independent school, our 10-11 year olds have a choice of whether or not to sit the Barbados Secondary School Entrance Exam. Within school we do an alternative to this that is designed to encompass the whole child, pushing and challenging these students in all areas of the curriculum. This takes its form as a 7 week, inquiry-based, concept-driven, student-led Exhibition project. This year, our class of nine PYP8 students was split into three groups and each group had to decide on a global issue or problem based around our Central Idea of “The variety of ways food resources are supplied and dispersed among humans”. This problem also had to have local relevance which required the students to go out into Barbados and explore. In our first two weeks of study the students visited places such as organic farmer’s markets, Oistins’ fish market, Emerald City’s Supercenter, and a fast-food chicken-based restaurant. We also had special guest visitors from Pinnacle Feeds and Slow Food to talk about their business and aims. It was also important to have team-building activities for these groups to bond; we went to look at fish populations in the Atlantis Submarine, took a hike on Walker’s Beach to look for Leatherback turtles and spent a night in our school library. After these provocations, one group decided on looking at the effects of Overfishing, while another explored Healthy Eating and its accessibility. The last group wanted to inquire into Deforestation for the sake of Agriculture. Each of these groups spent weeks sending emails, reading books and looking online to find information in their areas. They gathered their research to draw conclusions and work out what they could as Action to help counter the problems and issues they’ve studied. These ten, eleven and twelve year olds took on their projects with the modern technology available to them and made some interactive games, websites and displays. With sustainability in mind, much of their work was done on Google Docs, avoiding the paper waste. To finalize their Exhibition, they presented their findings and conclusions to the community in a big event at the school. Each subject was represented including performing arts, mathematics, language and science. As part of their Visual Arts they not only created displays for their presentation, they also designed and painted the amazing mural seen above with some of our creative parents from the community. The mural has been designed to represent sustainability in Barbados and the different concepts we have looked out throughout this project. The ideas learnt by these nine students will stay with them for a long time as they build up to become life-long learners and productive members of Barbadian society.

Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente 5 de Junio de 2014 BACHILLERATO UNDL Para la celebración del día mundial del medio ambiente se llevó a cabo la presentación de diferentes videos elaborados por los alumnos, de los dos grupos de Sexto Semestre. En estos se expusieron temáticas relacionadas con el deterioro y problemáticas ambientales de la comunidad. El objetivo fue observar su entorno e identificar situaciones o actividades donde se reflejara una problemática ambiental. Además, de exponer el tema de la presión ambiental, se incorporó una propuesta con alternativas para proteger el medio. Incluía también acciones que realizan instituciones u organizaciones, así como la legislación en México. Finalmente, se logró generar un cambio en la forma de pensar de los alumnos y la influencia que ellos pueden tener en otras personas, para lograr un desarrollo sustentable. El primer grupo de estudiantes presentó un video relacionado con la contaminación del mar, descargas de aguas residuales, industriales y desechos sólidos, y cómo afecta todo esto a la salud de las personas. El segundo grupo expuso en su video el problema del mal uso y desperdicio del agua y mostraron alternativas para el ahorro de agua, también incluyeron una serie de fotografías relacionadas con la basura de la playa y las consecuencias negativas para la salud. El tercer grupo, trabajó en una de las áreas afectadas por los incendios que se presentaron, hace algunas semanas, en nuestra ciudad de Ensenada y zonas aledañas. Mostraron cuáles fueron los factores que provocaron dichos incendios (escasez de humedad en la región, altas temperaturas, vegetación seca, tiraderos de aceites y los fuertes vientos), básicamente la presencia de estas condiciones son atípicas en esta temporada en la región; sin embargo, se pueden observar debido al cambio climático. Asimismo, este video relata las consecuencias como la contaminación atmosférica debido al humo. Un cuarto grupo editó un video relacionado con los residuos sólidos (basura en las colonias de la ciudad) donde se puede apreciar la falta de conciencia de las personas con relación a las consecuencias que tiene tener sus calles llenas de basura y además el riesgo a la salud que esto implica. Además de la basura, se puede observar la presencia de perros callejeros, lo cual es contaminación biológica, debido a los parásitos y desperdicios como garrapatas, pulgas y materia fecal. Los estudiantes también trabajaron el tema de sobrepoblación, cinco estudiantes acudieron a las pequeñas colonias donde algunas casas han invadido canales de arroyos, el mal manejo de la basura y tiraderos de escombros. Se incorporó un resumen con las diferentes organizaciones que trabajan en la ciudad para limpiar la ciudad y hacer conciencia en las personas. Básicamente el tema que más predominó fue residuos sólidos, tanto en la playa como en colonias y arroyos, desafortunadamente la ciudad tiene muchas áreas afectadas por basura.

On 5th of June, we wake up with a activity in our mind. As we know that today is world environment day. We went to a secondary school. We planted trees in the school garden. The aim of this activity to give value among youngsters that they should plant trees, not to cut trees. This activity will persuade them to spread this thought to other students and moreover in future they will be the savior of our environment not the destructor. I gave a lecture to the kids that why they should plant trees in any space they find and the importance of trees in a disaster vulnerable country like Bangladesh. The activity we are running is called green campaign. We've reached out about 50 people in person and 200 virtually through social media. Each year I and some young mind come together to run green campaign. This year our slogan is "Plant trees, Save Environment." Happy World Environment Day.

1. Tree planting was done to protect the riverbank against soil erosion, to provide aesthetic beauty and to contribute towards reducing global warming. This was done by over 70 employees out of 111 employees on one of the river banks at Kiira Power Station River banks. Combined they planted over 250 trees of pine tree. the event was graced with the presence of the Njeru Town Council Environment Officer. 2. Switching off computers and unnecessary lights was an initiative designed to save on water used for generation of that electricity, to improve on the amount of electricity available to be released to the national grid for economic development. This initiative was taken up by all workers with some reduction in energy used internally being realized. This initiative is still ongoing. 3. Waste reduction Initiative (specifically food & paper waste reduction initiatives) were to encourage responsible living, cost reduction especially on paper used in the company thus reducing on the deforestation impact. There was significant reduction in the amount of food thrown away as waste as well as paper wastage. This initiative is still ongoing. 4. Walk-to-work week was a health benefit as well as an initiative designed to reduce on fuel consumption hence reduction in rate of global warming.It would also lead to reduction in costs spent on transportation to the individual and to the company. This campaign was embraced by a number of employees and marked one of the flagship initiatives that defined this year’s WED celebrations. (see attached pictures)

Dear Colleagues, Please spare few minutes to read this information note. Today the World is celebrating “Environment Day”. World Environment Day (WED) is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment. Over the years it has grown into a global platform for public awareness and is celebrated in over 100 countries. It also serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something positive for the environment. Every year, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) selects a theme to observe World Environment Day, which also draws the attention for the need for an effective ecosystem management. The 2014 theme for World Environment Day will focus on 'Small Islands and Climate Change', the official slogan for the year 2014 is “ Raise Your Voice Not The Sea Level”. The purpose of selecting this theme is to encourage a greater understanding of the importance of Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and of the urgency to help protect the islands in the face of growing risks and vulnerabilities, particularly as a result of climate change. Let us join hands with international community and commit on this day that we will try in our own capacity to look for the means and ways to improve not only Refinery Environmental Performance but also in our surrounding. Some of the common areas that we can take care of are: Please educate your family regarding the environment day (Today) and at least plant one tree at your home and care for it. Please educate your children to throw garbage in dustbins and not on roads & walk ways as it would result in blockage within drain channels and may lead to mosquito nurseries. Be aware that dengue is not eradicated yet from Pakistan. Please take interest in knowing Environmental Performance of Attock Refinery & share your suggestions for further improvement. Don’t forget that we can save water in simple ways like not letting the tap run while shaving, washing your face, or brushing your teeth & limit shower time. Don’t go for shopping without your cloth bag so you can just say no to plastic whenever you shop. Convince your family members to minimize plastic bags usage. Turning off all unnecessary lights, especially in unused offices and conference rooms is an easy way to save energy.(please note that we are already facing load shedding) Instead of putting your computers in standby mode, please shut them off. Use electronic files to reduce your demand for paper products. Audit your home & office for energy conservation. Try to minimize the use of vehicles. Walking or riding a bike for short trips is good for your health-and the environment too! Running the dishwasher with only a full load, washing

This facility is dedicated as: (1) aquaculture training facility (grouper and mangrove crabs) for communities around the PT DSLNG plant area, (2) an ex-situ conservation and cultivation site of Banggai Cardinal Fish (BCF), and (3) supporting CSR programs especially for fisheries and marine activities. Banggai Cardinal Fish (BCF) is one of the coral or ornament fish that categorized as an endangered and endemic species of Banggai Island, Central Sulawesi. The scientific name of BCF is Pterapogon kauderni and the locals call it as "Capungan" or "Bibisan". Beside it cannot be found anywhere in the world, it also has some unique characteristics, such as territorial pair in groups, when spawning stimulated by the female parent, and it is a mouth brooder type which incubating eggs in the mouth that carried by the male parent. This species is threatened with extinction because of: the finite population (± 5,500 km2); easily captured because living in shallow water (1-5 feet); the exploitation that occurs in most of his life; and the habitat has been disturbed due to coral reef ecosystem starts to break down and urchin population (as a protection) is reduced due to consumption or as bait. Therefore, it is necessary to conserve the BCF to prevent from its extinction. For more information, please contact : Sugeng Putranto Environmental Team Leader - PT DSLNG

Según sus creadores, en su contenido se refleja como en 200 mil años, los humanos han interrumpido el frágil equilibrio sobre el cual la Tierra estaba viviendo durante 4 billones de años. El calentamiento global, la escasez de recursos, las especies puestas en peligro, entre otros aspectos, manifiestan que los humanos están arriesgando sus propias condiciones de vida. A finales del siglo, el implacable consumo habrá agotado casi todos los recursos naturales de nuestro planeta.

Hi, We had volunteered from our employees of our Plant to clean up plastics from the road side. There were too many plastic wastes dumped on the road side of the town. With the extensive efforts from our employees for the hour, we could remove 745 kgs of plastics from the area. Since plastic takes several years to decompose, it is not environment friendly, a very small effort towards mother earth and save nature.

Recently a conference was coordinated at Chitwan on the occasion of World Environment Day. It was entitled "Earth 2100 Satellite Conference". It was organized by Our Task Inc, Arlington, VA, USA in collaboration with Nepalese Youth Synergy and I was the one who coordinated it from Nepal. This conference was organized to motivate youth to play active roles on how to protect and preserve our environment so that earth becomes a safe place to live in even in coming century; 2100 A.D. Students from different parts of the country including Kathmandu, Hetauda, Pokhara, Butwal, Bhairahawa, Chitwan have participated in this conference and all together we had selected 80 participants from different places as mentioned above. This conference was divided in 4 sessions. In the first session our first resource person gave his presentation who was an environment expert. Then a group discussion with question answer series was held which was the second session of the conference. In the third session our next resource person gave his presentation that focused on the roles of youth on environment preservation and how can they enroll themselves on different productive activities that can help to sustain healthy environment. The fourth session was the most important session where the participants were given time to prepare their action plans about how can they bring up programs on local level to sustain healthier environment. Participants were divided into 10 groups with 8 members in each. I felt an immense pleasure when I was observing the last session where participants were having a grand discussion in each group making their action plans and finally each of the group presented their action plans in the stage. It was really appreciable and was appreciated by our resource person. With this the program became a great success indeed as I along with my team was able to create 80 passionate students concerned to sustain a healthier environment. The chief guest of the conference was District Education Officer of Chitwan Mr. Ramakanta Sharma and Special guest was Registrar of Agirculture and Foresty University Dr. Surya Kant Ghimire.

PROYECTO INSTITUCIONAL “DÍA MUNDIAL DEL MEDIO AMBIENTE “ FUNDAMENTACIÒN: Este proyecto pretende la concientización sobre el medio ambiente a través del cuidado del agua, del suelo y del aire como recursos renovables valorándolos como los medios de más alto valor e importancia para el desarrollo de las actividades del ser humano en el medio urbano posadeño. Ser protagonistas de un hecho concreto en pro del mejoramiento de la calidad de vida de todos es presentar un desafío a los integrantes de la familia naval en particular y, con la ayuda de otros organismos e instituciones colaboradoras, se estaría realizando una obra de bien público o social. La reflexión realizada como cadetes sobre la contaminación del aire, del suelo y del agua es regular y constante dentro del ámbito académico, donde los profesores forman desde los aspectos cognitivos la importancia de preservar y cuidar. La asunción de conductas a favor del cuidado del medio ambiente por parte de los adultos (profesores, personal civil, personal militar, padres y egresados) se demuestra en la vida cotidiana e interior del LNAS. Todos los actores de la familia naval (cadetes, profesores, personal civil, militar, padres y egresados) aspiran realizar una actividad fuera del claustro educativo, precisamente en el espacio público: la costanera de Posadas, limpiando desde el agua y desde la tierra un sector comprometido por la acumulación de basura. La cultura ambiental ciudadana es concebida en teoría y práctica indisolublemente. El cuidado de nuestro medio ambiente resulta primordial para que todos los seres vivos puedan disfrutar de lo que la naturaleza nos brinda o el hombre ha creado. OBJETIVO: Contribuir la sociedad posadeña con la limpieza de un sector de la costanera y concienciar a los actores de este proyecto sobre la importancia del cuidado del medio ambiente. Promover la participación activa y comprometida de la familia naval no sólo en el Día mundial del medio ambiente, sino asumir prácticas cotidianas responsables como parte de su estilo de vida y brindar con esas acciones ejemplos de conductas apropiadas y positivas. RECURSOS: MATERIALES: Bolsas de residuos, guantes descartables, piraguas, lanchas, balleneras, colectivos, camionetas para acarrear la basura. HUMANOS: cadetes, profesores, personal civil, militar, padres y egresados. FINANCIEROS: Sin costo, excepto el combustible para los medios de transporte que se tramitará desde la administración directiva y contable. Todos los demás recursos serán aportados por los participantes y/o donados por otras instituciones u organismos. PARTICIPANTES RESPONSABLES: directivos, docentes, personal civil, militar. ORGANISMOS COLABORADORES DE GESTIÓN EXTERNA: . Municipalidad de Posadas . Dirección de tránsito. . Dirección General de Seguridad Náutica . Prefectura.

Santo Domingo , Dominican Republic

El presidente Danilo Medina encabezó, junto al ministro de Medio Ambiente, Bautista Rojas Gómez, la celebración del Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente, durante un acto realizado en el Parque Nacional Los Humedales del Ozama. En el acto, los niños del Taller de Pintura Daisy Pimentel, pintaron dos murales alusivos uno al turismo responsable y el otro, a la prevención de la estabilidad en el nivel del mar. Este parque, de 47 kilómetros cuadrados, está ubicado en la comunidad de La Ceiba, del Distrito Municipal de La Victoria, en Santo Domingo Norte. El objetivo de la actividad es promover la importancia y singularidad de los ecosistemas y procesos ecológicos que se producen en territorios insulares como el de República Dominicana, así como su potencial turístico.Esta iniciativa se enmarca en los propósitos de la Organización de las Naciones Unidas, de poner de relieve la necesidad que tiene el mundo de enfrentar las amenazas al ecosistema y los recursos naturales a nivel global, a causa del cambio climático y otros fenómenos. El presidente Medina recorrió la Laguna Manatí, uno de los principales estanques del Parque Nacional Los Humedales del Ozama. En este 2014 la celebración del Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente tiene como lema “Alza tu voz, no el nivel del mar”, y con este motivo un grupo de niños del Taller de Pintura Daisy Pimentel, bajo la dirección del Departamento de Educación de Medio Ambiente, pintó dos murales alusivos, uno al turismo responsable con la biodiversidad y el otro, a la prevención de la estabilidad en el nivel del mar. Durante el acto bendecido por el padre Milton Ruiz, la Sala Capitular del Distrito Municipal de La Victoria declaró Huésped de Honor al presidente Danilo Medina, mediante resolución. Al pronunciar el discurso central del acto, el ministro de Medio Ambiente, Bautista Rojas Gómez, aseguró que esta coyuntura es propicia para exhortar a las personas y a las comunidades a intensificar su atención y acción sobre los temas ambientales y lograr el desarrollo sostenible. El Presidente consideró que urge continuar fortaleciendo las estrategias de protección de los territorios insulares ante los crecientes riesgos y desafíos a los que hacen frente a causa de fenómenos como las sequías, la pérdida de la biodiversidad, el agotamiento de los acuíferos y la reducción de la capa de ozono. “En atención a esa singularidad ecosistémica de lugares y especies que caracterizan a los pequeños territorios insulares, es que quiero aprovechar para decir que es necesario, que los dominicanos aportamos nuestro grano de arena, para destacar la inmensa riqueza y el extraordinario potencial que tiene el patrimonio natural de República Dominicana, para alcanzar la meta de recibir en nuestro país a 10 millones de turistas en armonía con el medio ambiente”, expresó. En ese sentido, el funcionario hizo un inventario de los recursos naturales del país, que pueden ser aprovechados por el turismo con una visión sostenible adecuada.

The theme for Swaziland adapted from the international theme is “Raise Your Voice Not Emissions”. The theme talks the global challenge that efforts to deal with climate change are still not enough, greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere are at their highest for 800,000 years. Even though the international theme focuses mainly on Small Island States, the impacts of climate change on Swaziland as a small state are not different. This year’s focus on Climate Change has come at most significant time where the country is preparing the Third National Communication to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, National Climate Change Policy and finalizing the National Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan. The day was commemorated outdoor, with a clean-up and tree planting campaign.

Dia Mundial do Meio Ambiente No dia 05 de Junho celebramos o Dia Mundial do Ambiente, a data foi estabelecida pela Assembleia Geral das Nações Unidas em 1972 pois foi o dia que marcou a abertura da Conferência de Estocolmo na Suécia, cujo tema central foi o Ambiente Humano. Os principais objetivos dessa comemoração são: • Mostrar o lado humano das questões ambientais; • Capacitar as pessoas a se tornarem agentes ativos do desenvolvimento sustentável; • Promover a compreensão de que é fundamental que comunidades e indivíduos mudem atitudes em relação ao uso dos recursos e das questões ambientais; • Advogar parcerias para garantir que todas as nações e povos desfrutem um futuro mais seguro e mais próspero. Para marcar essa data a FH distribui em seus escritórios uma lembrança sustentável, são sementes de uma árvore nativa que pode ser plantada em regiões urbanas que possuam capacidade para seu desenvolvimento. Com o intuito de impulsionar a participação de todos premiaremos cinco colaboradores que nos enviarem fotos criativas do momento do plantio das árvores. As fotos serão avaliadas e os vencedores ganharão um Kit Sustentável composto por: 1 sacola ecológica, 1 nécessaire ou estojo, 1 caderno e 1 caneta. As sacolas ecológicas, nécessaires e estojos foram feitos com banners de antigas ações/eventos promovidos na FH, eles foram produzidos por uma ONG de mulheres moradoras de uma comunidade carente da região de Curitiba. A ideia foi reaproveitar um material que não teria mais utilidade além de promover atividade profissional para a instituição parceira. Sustentabilidade, nós seguimos essa ideia! Esta empresa é signatária da Rede Brasileira do Pacto Global da ONU.

Lunkad Realty, Pune, India, celebrated World Environment Day on Thursday June 5th 2014. The 2014 theme for World Environment Day focused on 'Small Islands and Climate Change', the official slogan for the year 2014 is 'Raise Your Voice Not The Sea Level’ The employees of Lunkad Realty were educated about the reasons why sea level is rising. The office is located in Pune city, which has witnessed sudden rise in the temperature in this summer as compared to the last 10 years. Some of the reasons are rapidly growing urbanization, increase on the transportation, and industries. In the direction of Amit Lunkad the Lunkad Group has been fulfilling housing demand of the city for more than a decade, and practiced best construction methods and technologies and presented sustainable built environment in the city. Being huge consumers of energy and water, buildings can be made sustainable by its design and usage pattern. Hence this year the group began to educate their existing clients, i.e., the owners and tenants of the properties developed by the group. They were made aware on the sustainability features incorporated in the design and construction. The tips were given on energy saving, water saving, and material and solid waste management that are applicable while using their building complex. Following activities were organized in the office. 1. Drive to recycle - Employees were suggested to remove all the paper and plastic waste from office and homes sale it off to scrap vendors. There is a very well organized labor camp of Lunkad realty with about 30 kids of 0-13 years’ age. School and day-care facility is provided to these kids.The money recovered from sale of scrap collected from houses of 150 employees was used to purchase the long lasting gifts for the kids of construction workers working at sites of Lunkad Realty. 2. Drive to reuse- While removing scrap from the houses the employees had taken off the good quality cloths, bed sheets, shoes, and toys that they are not using. This stuff was collected at all the head office and site offices. This collection was donated to the construction workers. The drive was mobilized, with a thought that sharing such things with these people will stop them buying new things and it will reduce a little bit load over manufacturing. 3. Drive to be creative- A drawing competition was organized for the employees and their kids. The drawing or painting is not only a piece of art, but it is a way to think and express the ideas. The competition was kept open for all the age groups. The young kids expressed their concerns and also dreamed for a better planet with positive thoughts with actions in their drawings. 4. Drive to reduce Fuel use- The employees of Lunkad Realty were encouraged to use of car-pool (or double seat on bike) or public transport on this day. 5. Mass Plantation- The employees along with directors have planted 60 trees of Spathodia on a residential site called Sky Belvedere in Pune.

A Sting in the Tail for World Environment Week in Afghanistan The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is sending an SOS to the world to raise awareness of climate change and its impacts on both urban and rural settings in Afghanistan in 2014. UNEP, together with national government authorities from the National Environmental Protection Agency (NEPA) and four other line ministries, is organizing a week of events in Afghanistan’s central highlands (Bamyan and Daikundi provinces) to raise awareness on climate and ecology issues. Moreover, UNEP is working with the Department of Education and the Governor’s offices to put water, insects and arachnids (even scorpions!), plants, sanitation, and land issues in the context of the rapidly drying central highlands region. "Afghanistan has remarkable resilience in its rangelands, forests and high alpine regions," said Andrew Scanlon, UNEP Afghanistan Country Programme Manager, "however, in the past decades, the carrying capacity of this ecological hotspot and its unique "toughness" is being put under great strain. As Afghanistan’s population increases, highly destructive practices that damage soil, water and biodiversity and becoming more common." Afghanistan needs to recognize the immense ecological wealth it already possesses and the international community needs to do more to carry out development practices that enhance sustainability and resilience, building on the ancient traditions already in place. Meanwhile, national government colleagues from NEPA and partner organization, Wildlife Conservation Society, are travelling to the remote Wakhan Corridor, where the majority of Afghanistan's remaining glaciers, snow leopards and wild antelope are to be found. The team will meet with Kirghiz elders and lay the groundwork for the countries second national park. Back in the capital city of Kabul, university leaders are hosting a lecture series at Kabul University, Afghanistan Centre (ACKU), together with the eminent Nancy Dupree Hatch, herself a champion of the environment, to include the next generation of scientists, doctors and foresters in activities for World Environment Week, and present a library of key environmental books to the university library and ACKU archive.

B2b Bag sale Cinnamon Grand, Sri Lanka’s premier five-star hotel in the city organised the fifth edition of the unique recycling initiative, known as Banners to Bags (B2b) on World Environment Day at the hotel. Under this initiative, old flexi banners used by the hotel during the previous year along with banners left over by organisations hosting events at the hotel are transformed in to durable, water-proof, trendy bags by the hotel’s retired tailors. Flexi material, a cheap source of advertising is a petroleum by-product and discarding these banners without a sustainable recycling is a health and environment hazard due to their non-degradable quality. Cinnamon Grand first embarked on this initiative in 2009, after a two-year research initiative conducted by the hotel’s Public Relations team. The project was then evaluated and endorsed nu Nobel Peace Prize 2007 Co-Laureate Prof. Mohan Munasinghe. Munasinghe headed the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and also heads MIND (Munasinghe Institute for Development). This year 45 banners were used to create eye-catching fashionable bags numbering 170. Over 100 of these bags were sold to hotel guests, patrons and associates. B2b emphasises the importance of infusing the triple bottom line concept into the hotel’s daily operations and was inspired by the 3R initiative of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Through this, the hotel reduced the waste that could arise from discarding these banners, reusing the discarded products by recycling it for more productive use in the form of these trendy and exclusive bags. B2b initiative also has multiple environmental, economic and social benefits. Under the economic benefits, the production of these bags are created by retired tailors of the hotel, giving them a source of sustainable income and self-worth. Socially, benefits of the sale are channelled towards Cinnamon Grand’s primary CSR initiative, the Children’s Ward of the Maharagama Cancer Hospital.

EMPTY NEST an ephemeral artwork by Montsalvat Artist-in-residence Denise Keele-bedford As artist-in-residence at Montsalvat Denise's Project 'Marks, Makings and other Memories' will be investigating those environments, places of history, of beauty, of intrigue, of mystery and the relationship between site, structure and memory. She proposes to look for and express what she sees as mapping Montsalvat. Like the naturalist, she will discover Montsalvat icons – be it a specific site, shadow, structure or story that will influence the artwork development, materials and production. She will be looking at what has been, what is left behind and what is now. In conjunction with World Environment Day Denise has created the artwork 'Empty Nest'. A nest is a place of comfort, security, and nurturing until such time that the young ‘take flight’. Nesting is a term that relates to preparation for new life. In animals it is the urge to seek a sheltered spot to give birth. Birds instinctively build nests in readiness to lay their eggs. Often animals and birds will use their own fur or down to line the nest. When Justus Jorgensen wanted to fulfill his dream of building an arts colony his ‘nesting’ time began. As the land was developed a community grew. New life came into this place as physical beings and as energy, ideas, discussions and creations. The people who came provided their skills and labour to build a nest called Montsalvat. It became home to many, a place of comfort, security, nurturing, encouragement and creativity. In the Pine Forest at Montsalvat on the outskirts of Melbourne, in Eltham the trees are tall and strong, their canopy protects what is below. A soft bed of Pine Needles yet a place of semi darkness, of mystery and intrigue where one is not so sure what may be found. Within this space a nest is sited, made from Willow tendrils and locally found foliage. The nest is empty and one wonders if it is in preparation for new life or perhaps the young have ‘taken flight’. The Empty Nest is open for the young to step inside, to feel the sensation of a comfortable, secure, nurturing place.

Dubai , United Arab Emirates

World Environment Day on 5th June. SynergY youth group in Dubai made a promise for by planting 50 trees at Green Mountain MRF supported by Dubai Municipality at the landfill area in Dubai on 7th June'2014. Nearly 1200 trees have been planted at various landfill and waste management sites in a short span in Dubai and 50 more added today. The Members also took interesting selfies near the Mamzar Beach to seal their pledge. These pictures showed the deep commitment this group has to raise awareness and get the community engaged in to support environment. Theme of World Environment Day was “Raise your voices and not the sea level”. Simran Vedvyas, the founder of SynergY explained how each and every act of ours can help reduce the effects of global warming which is the biggest threat to humankind as- ‘We throw away over 1/3 of all food that is produced, wasting precious land and water resources that have gone into its production. Food waste in landfills is one of the biggest contributors of the harmful gases that cause global warming. Warmer temperatures are melting glaciers causing sea levels to rise, threatening small islands and low lying cities around the world. We pose everyone to take pledge and ‘reduce food waste’ because this is the only way to make a difference in lives of our future generation’ Mr. Sadin Ismail Al Falasi, Head of Treatment Systems Unit from Waste Management Department, Dubai Municipality and other officials were present at the event to support and encourage the children in their endeavors. He believes that what this group is doing for the community is remarkable and also complimented Simran for her recent achievements and on receiving the John Muir Award for Youth Environmental Conservation Award and the International 2014 Eco Hero Award by Action for Nature USA, recently. “We ask everyone to help reduce the "FOODprint" by managing the meals smartly, storing food, using leftovers, buying imperfect vegetables and encouraging the supermarkets and restaurants to cut their food waste”, is the message disseminated by the members of this group. The group celebrated the World Environment Day by visiting the exhibition "Your Planet Needs You" by Dubai Municipality at Children City that encourages a scientific look into the future of Dubai should we choose to take care of or ignore our environment. The visit to this exhibition gave a glimpse into Dubai 2050 as to how citizen of Dubai will survive global changes such as resource availability and the climate. The exhibition is an eye-opener into a scientifically designed future of our world, and is recommended for children, teens and families. The activities were CSR supported by Al Futtaim Carillion and Barakat Juices.

Our organisation, Action for Social Advancement (ASA) actively participating in World Environment Day since 2009, strictly following theme of UNEP. This year, we observed World Environment Day at Langol hill in Imphal West of Manipur state in India. Our NGO select this foothills with a mission to conserve the hills from encroachers and unauthorised land grabbers. The hill was once a lush green forest with natural plants, trees, animals and birds. Today, human exploitation have degraded the forest, no trees are found growing, and houses were built. We volunteer and planted around 300 fruit saplings like mango, orange, banana, jackfruits etc. We plant fruit trees as these will bear fruits after 2 years and people wont fell down the tree since these trees are giving them fuits. We went to every house and asked them to plant at least 2 fruit plants which will give them fruits. And request them not to clear the forest of Langol hill. We will raise our voice as well not to encroach natural forests and do necessary actions against government policies which dont work in the interest of environment.

The Honourable Hilson Baptiste, Minister of Environment, along with the Precision Centre (a Community Group), government agencies and the Bethesda Primary School, participated in a tree planting to commemorate the day. The site chosen to plant is where the Precision Centre, the GEF Small Grants, has chosen to cultivate fruit trees. Minister Baptiste addressed the group stating the importance of planting trees in order to not only combat climate change and land degradation, but also to provide sustainable livelihoods for families. He encouraged the group to continue to plant fruit-bearing trees so that we, as a nation, can limit our reliance on imported goods. The morning continued with representatives from each group participating in planting trees. Many of the children from the nearby Bethesda Primary School had never been in the area before and had a chance to enjoy being out in that environment while planting trees. Later in the day the Minister also addressed the nation from his office. This address was aired by the national news media, the Antigua and Barbuda Broadcasting Station (ABS), that evening. The address included the Government of Antigua and Barbuda's commitment to continuing to find a means of substituting all imports, including the move towards renewable energy sources. This also includes encouraging businesses to use biofuels; again substituting our imports of non-renewable oil. Essentially, by changing the way we live we can then increase our ability to adapt to the impacts of climate change, while mitigating against them at the same time. Also built into the focus of the government has been the decision, and subsequent relocating of the Environment Division into the Botanical Gardens where issues related to biodiversity, climate change and land degradation can be demonstrated properly. This will be the public relations and awareness arm which supports all other policies and demonstrates the government's commitment to the Conventions on Biological Diversity, Climate Change and Land Degradation. The Government of Antigua and Barbuda is committed to raising our voices through smart policies and decisive action.

Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico

En el Marco del Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente, impulsado por el Programa de Naciones Unidas para el Medio Ambiente (PNUMA), Revista Zona Luz implementó la Feria Ambiental: “Luz verde al Medio Ambiente”, promoviendo el lema, “Tus acciones hacen el cambio”,el pasado 5 de junio 2014.En dicho evento se promovió la limpieza en espacios públicos, como parques y jardines; ya que en Mérida México aún no existe la cultura, en los dueños de las mascotas, de recoger las heces fecales de sus perros. Por tal motivo se impartieron pláticas sobre los problemas que produce la falta de estos hábitos en los dueños de las mascotas, como: enfermedades estomacales y de la piel; contaminación del agua y de los alimentos que se consumen al aire libre; contaminación de las plantas y la tierra, la mala imagen de los espacios públicos y de los dueños de las mascotas; problemas sociales, pues muchas veces es molesto para la sociedad encontrar este tipo de desechos en las calles,en las aceras de las casas, así como en parques y jardines. Para promover la conciencia, también se invitó a la acción a los asistentes al evento, en especial a los dueños de mascotas que estuvieron presentes, obsequiándoles bolsas recicladas para recoger las heces de estas mascotas, cuando salgan de paseo. El segundo tema que se tocó en el evento, fue el del reciclaje que hoy en día, además de ayudar a no contaminar al planeta, es una actividad sustentable, pues de ella dependen más de 10 mil familias en México. Esta plática fue ofrecida por la empresa Recitycle, una de las más importantes en el país en materia de reciclaje de embaces PET , aluminio, papel, entre otros. Recitycle invitó a separar los productos hechos con estos materiales, a mantenerlos en buen estado, para su reutilización. Externaron su preocupación por los desechos de plástico, pues tardan entre cien y mil años para degradarse, y mucho más, si están mezclados con desechos orgánicos, por lo que invitaron a los asistentes a reutilizarlos o llevarlos a una planta recicladora. A estas pláticas, se sumó el Dip. Mauricio Vila Dosal, Presidente de la Comisión de Medio Ambiente del Congreso de Yucatán, quien recalcó que “hay que hacer muchas acciones como sociedad y gobierno para adoptar una cultura ambiental”. La campaña "Luz verde al Medio Ambiente" se llevará a más parques de Mérida.

Explain to the all workman about world environment day and given to the information about Recycle and use recycled products Products made from recycled paper, glass, metal and plastic reduce carbon emissions because they use less energy to manufacture than products made from completely new materials. For instance, you'll save two pounds of carbon for every 20 glass bottles that you recycle. Recycling paper also saves trees and lets them continue to reduce climate change naturally as they remain in the forest, where they remove carbon from the atmosphere.

Ambo, Ethiopia

In Ethiopia, farmers vow to save a volcanic lake Woliso, Ethiopia: 3380 meters above the sea level, defying cold winds and scorching sunlight, about one thousand people, chiefly members of farmer families settled along the mountains covering famous volcanic Lake Wenchi took a strong pledge to save the lake from its dying state of today. They took a strong resolve to do whatever possible for saving the water body from further degradation due to soil erosion and sedimentation. At a function held on the World Environment Day (Yesterday, 05 June), in a display of their solidarity for salvaging the lake, they gathered on its upper bank and joined their hands forming a ‘Love Link for Lake Wenchi’. Raising their joined hands upward they pledged that from then they would love and respect their environment, too. The programme, first of its kind in Ethiopia was organized by Micro Business College (MBC), a major player in higher education in Ethiopia providing education for the poor along highland towns of Ambo, Woliso, Gedo and Meda Kegne. Wenchi Woreda Administration provided local support. A host of dignitaries including the former President of the country, Dr. Girma W/Giorgis was witness to the event. Dr. Girma who is also a staunch environmental activist made a rousing speech. “Lake Wenchi is our home. Remember that we have no peace and prosperity without the well-being of the lake”, Dr. Girma added. He poignantly called the village community to join in the efforts of scientific measures for mitigating the threat of soil erosion. Earlier, the 90-year-old leader traversed an arduous mountain trail to reach the venue. When he, on wheelchair, alighted from an omnibus, children and the old alike jostled to touch his feet and get his hands. A traditional farmer cavalry on horseback piloted Dr. Girma’s convoy gesturing the native way of royal welcoming. President of the MBC, Mr. Abera Tilahun declared that the college would plant a record number of 4 million seedlings along the Wenchi mountains in the coming days. “We want the lake to live long and provide health and wealth for many upcoming generations. We also want the current generation to contribute for the posterity of the lake” he said. The college would induct new courses to enable student community to act as practitioners of environmental conservation as well as contributors of social development, he added. During an interactive session, representatives from the farmer community expressed their concerns and views on the issue. A woman farmer Dissatu Ijjeta shared the dilemma they faced in procuring firewood and preserving trees. “We need support from organizations in finding out a sustainable way of dealing with our needs and protection of natural resources”, she said. Dessalegn, an 83-year-old farmer said he was led to agriculture since his childhood. “We are born on the lake waters. Lake is our life” he said sentimentally. The college’s Dean Dereje Bekele spoke on the occasion.

The Karen Environmental and Social Action Network (KESAN) organized the World Environment Day in one of the indigenous Karen people areas on the Salween River in Mutraw District (Papun) in Burma. The event was attended by 200 participants and they included students, teachers, parents, and community leaders. Celebrating the environment day is a very important day for indigenous Karen people in Burma because environmental resources such as forest and river are part of their lives and existence, and they are understood as Karen people's identity. For generations, Karen people reply on forests and there are many benefits that Karen people gain from the forests; for instance, foods, shelter, herbal medicine, trees that maintain good quality of soil for food productions, water, firewood, and other non-timber forest products. Traditionally, as forest plays a significant role in their lives, Karen people are very much aware of as well as have been committed to conserve, protect, and manage environmental resources in effective and sustainable manners. For the successful implementation of the event, three key activities conducted included public awareness raising on environmental problems such as deforestation and large-scale development project such as dam construction, clean-up campaign of waste and pollution in the stream, and tree planting. Naw Tamla Wah, a school teacher participating in the event, noticed that, "celebrating this day is very important for me personally because for what i have gained from the training as well as involvement in the event help me to set a good example in how to protect and conserve the environment for young people and local community as a whole to have a sustainable community."

CUValles se une a la fiesta por el Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente El Centro Universitario de los Valles (CUValles) de la Universidad de Guadalajara celebró esta semana el Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente con una jornada de actividades el 5 de junio en el Centro Interpretativo Guachimontones, en el municipio de Teuchitlán, como parte del Comité Técnico para el Manejo Integral de la Presa La Vega, así como tres días de acción por el medio ambiente en el propio plantel educativo, de 4 al 6 de junio. El Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente, instaurado por la Organización de las Naciones Unidas en 1972, y que se celebra el 5 de junio, constituye una de las principales acciones de este organismo para la sensibilización acerca del cuidado de la Tierra como una responsabilidad de todos. Responsabilidad y pequeñas acciones, parte de la solución El rector del CUValles, doctor José Luis Santana Medina recordó que esta celebración nos permite reflexionar sobre la relación existente entre el ser humano y su medio ambiente, “perdimos la armonía en nuestro desarrollo como sociedad y nuestra relación con la naturaleza y por ello al día de hoy existe un riesgo sobre el desarrollo de la vida humana en la Tierra” apuntó. En alusión al filósofo alemán, Hans Jonas, el directivo acudió al principio de la responsabilidad al invitar a la comunidad a actuar de tal manera que sus acciones sean compatibles con la permanencia de la vida humana. Por su parte, la maestra Laura Argelia Zamora Galván, Secretario Técnico de la Secretaria de Medio Ambiente y Desarrollo Territorial (SEMADET), quien compartió un mensaje con la comunidad del CUValles justo el 5 de junio, reconoció que en el cuidado del ambiente son las pequeñas acciones pueden las que marcar diferencia en un futuro, “debemos tomar medidas desde nuestras casa, comunidades y en nuestras escuelas, las pequeñas acciones pueden resultar muy favorables”. Presa La Vega y CUValles Las celebraciones del Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente tanto en Teuchitlán como en el CUValles incluyeron una serie de conferencias sobre temas como el cambio climático, la riqueza natural de la región de los Valles y el cuidado del agua. De igual manera, ambas sedes contaron con una campaña de reforestación, además de la exhibición de videos documentales y largometrajes con temáticas en referencia al medio ambiente así como exposiciones fotográficas alusivas.

Limpeza da lagoa da Prata . Sobre a fotografia da capa do projeto, Santiago ressalta que é de autoria da fotografa Elvira Nascimento, para Santiago, ao vê a foto da Lagoa da Prata, que mais parecia uma pintura, onde o céu e o verde da mata ciliar comungam no espelho d'água, foi o diferencial, e seria a foto certa para o projeto. Segundo ele, a Lagoa da Prata, diferente das muitas lagoas que existe na região têm sua gênese diferenciada. Enquanto a maioria dos espelhos d'água do médio Rio Doce, originaram-se através de processos de "horst" e "graben" (soerguimento e rebaixamento da crosta terrestre), a lagoa formou-se a partir do recuo do Rio Doce, seu formato em forma de bumerangue, comprova que ali o rio fazia uma curva, era um meandro que abandonado pelo rio ao se encaixar no leito natural, deixou formada uma lagoa no seu terraço abandonado, ficando isoladas como tantas lagoas da região. Em contato com Elvira, ela foi solicita e nos presenteou com uma fotografia atemporal, captada através de olhar sensível, e o que vocês observam abaixo é a magnitude do ambiente.

This year , I decided to introduce the environmental awareness , the ISF , Go Green Mobile Power but also the UNEP in a presentation for my classmates . I also told them about the WED and how they could participate on this day . The teacher was so convinced that at the end of the presentation she stood up , applaused and talk about environmental issues with my classmates. It was just amazing because they all listened carefully to what I was saying and I know they got the message. Some even tried to find informations, about all the things I introduced , on the internet. I also fought for my point of view by explaining them why it is important to save our planet , and why I care so much. So here is what I did for the WED this year Thank you for your reading -Maréva PS: You can see the pic which was taken while I was doing it , there's nobody in the front because they were all in the back and I am sorry because it isn't in really high quality. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yG7P8wLUBF4 : my presentation and there was a text with it :)

The Barbados Ball Hockey League (BBHL) is a non-profit organization established in 2006 which currently consists of 38 active members, mostly Canadian expats and Bajans. Every Thursday night at a local government building parking lot / basketball court we set up a rink and play North-American style ball hockey in an organized four team league. On June 7, 2014 we have organized a local clean up day that we are calling “Barbados Ball Hockey League Helping Keep Barbados Green”. Over the years extensive garbage has accumulated around the parking lot where we play and the container wherein we keep our equipment. BBHL members have volunteered their time to clean up the playing, container and surrounding areas of the parking lot, and we have organized a skip to collect the garbage and take it away.

'Rendezvous' is kind of a project which is created on a purpose of "meeting the world through movies." We choose a social value like justice, equality, freedom, and a movie which expresses the value. After watching films and being inspired, we activate, to remind of what we learned on the movie. What we decided to learn this time was the value, "Going Green." That June is a month of environment, and that June Fifth is World Environment Day affected us to decide. We watched the movie "Beasts of the Southern Wild", and saw what happened to the girl hushpuppy and people who lives in the Bathtub, a small island situated in somewhere near the levee built by the land's people. People make the earth's environment worse and worse till the world can't contain it anymore. As a little result of abuse, water floods attacks the land and small islands, causing inundation of them. The Bathtub also had to resist against the disaster. Land of the island drained rapidly even after the water had went away. The movie showed what little island goes through when the sea level rises. We felt we had to do something that we hadn't. Some days after, we came across that this year's WED stands for the small islands endangered by the rise of sea level, which provoked by us. We entered this site and joined the WED challenge to reduce FOODprint with team Gisele, because we thought we make too much food waste in our school. We decided to do "Clean Plate Operation," which is not making any food waste and take a picture to share with others, and planned to try it for not one day but for one week, whole lunch and dinner that we have in school. We thought about promoting the initiative to our school students, but it seemed better to do it by ourselves first, knowing how hard is it, and encourage people after it. It would be more sincere, we thought. From 5/26 to 5/30, we didn't make any of food waste when we had lunch and dinner. The photo uploaded is the picture of our work, empty plates and ourselves. It was little bit harder than I thought. We had to eat all the things, even the last spoon of soup and broth served every meal, every pieces of rice. But we did it after all. Once we completed our mission, it seemed not that difficult to make a Clean Plate. Reducing FOODprint is not that difficult to do. Going green and Saving our planet is not that hard thing to do. This is what we've done for WED 2014. But it's not finished. We already watched and learnd from some TED talks about environment and green life. And we are going to challenge for green life everyday. First, we will make a pledge for doing little green behaviors and check each other's complete-status every week. And second, we will share it with our friends to make it more common in our society. This is just a beginning, but I believe it would be a great big movement to be green.

Nammok, Ulsan, Republic of Korea

'Rendezvous' is kind of a project which is created on a purpose of "meeting the world through movies." We choose a social value like justice, equality, freedom, and a movie which expresses the value. After watching films and being inspired, we activate, to remind of what we learned on the movie. What we decided to learn this time was the value, "Going Green." That June is a month of environment, and that June Fifth is World Environment Day affected us to decide. We watched the movie "Beasts of the Southern Wild", and saw what happened to the girl hushpuppy and people who lives in the Bathtub, a small island situated in somewhere near the levee built by the land's people. People make the earth's environment worse and worse till the world can't contain it anymore. As a little result of abuse, water floods attacks the land and small islands, causing inundation of them. The Bathtub also had to resist against the disaster. Land of the island drained rapidly even after the water had went away. The movie showed what little island goes through when the sea level rises. We felt we had to do something that we hadn't. Some days after, we came across that this year's WED stands for the small islands endangered by the rise of sea level, which provoked by us. We entered this site and joined the WED challenge to reduce FOODprint with team Gisele, because we thought we make too much food waste in our school. We decided to do "Clean Plate Operation," which is not making any food waste and take a picture to share with others, and planned to try it for not one day but for one week, whole lunch and dinner that we have in school. We thought about promoting the initiative to our school students, but it seemed better to do it by ourselves first, knowing how hard is it, and encourage people after it. It would be more sincere, we thought. From 5/26 to 5/30, we didn't make any of food waste when we had lunch and dinner. The photo uploaded is the picture of our work, empty plates and ourselves.

A Prayer for the Universe, a pledge for the Universe The word environment is explained as the natural world, as a whole or in a particular geographical area, especially as affected by human activity. All the activities connected to the WED also found as something for the betterment of the future human beings - there are slogans to protect the air, the water, the earth... and all aim at one thing: protect them for the future of humanity. The fundamental fact is that we, the humans also are just a part of the universe - we have equal right as the rights of any other creature on the universe- nothing more, nothing less. But we can not admit it and we are still trying to keep everything for us. The culture of India was not like this - the prayer of India was for the whole Universe, not for the mankind. When we say universe, it includes everything - the seen and unseen, near ones and far ones, that which belong to us and not belong to us. The Sanskrit prayer is LOKAA SAMASTHAA SUKHINO BHAVANTHU:. It means, may the entire world be in peace. Loka in sanskrit means everything that could be sensed with the organs as well as mind. In this way one could find that even the black hole could be understood through thoughts. The mantra wish peace to everything - not just the good ones but the bad ones too. There is no more better prayer than this in my views. One who chant this everyday will not even hit on a stone on the road just for pleasure - for him or her, let the stone be there as it is kept there by the Nature. Means, that particular position was assigned to the stone by the Nature and we are nobody to change it. A person who think like this will not destroy or even over utilize anything for his or her living. His life will keep all imprints like water footprints, ecofootprints etc to its minimum level. This is exactly what the UN and all organizations trying to establish. This prayer was already there in India. As a teacher of Cluny Public School & Junior College, Cheppumpara, Lakkattoor, Kottayam, Kerala, India,on 5th June (the WED )2014, I made the following announcement for the students in the school assembly: (1) Make a prayer for the universe in maximum 5 sentences. (2) Make a pledge for the universe in maximum 7 sentences. The prayer and pledge should be a sincere one for the whole Universe, not just for the mankind. It should be simple too. All students can participate. Last date of accepting entries will be 31st March, 2015. There will be separate first, second prizes for the Primary, upper primary, high school and higher secondary divisions. There will be separate prizes for the pledge and the prayer.The awarded entries will be sent to Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam, former president and renowned scientist of India, the Government of India and the UNEP. All expenses for the prize distribution shall be personally spent by me. This is my humble and sincere contribution to my world or the Universe.

We conducted a session on making a nature collage. We divided our girls into groups of 2 and gave them each a chart paper, scissors and glue and asked them to make a collage themed on the Environment, giving out a negative or a positive message. The girs were to do this without pens, paints, crayons... only whatever they can find in their immediate environment. the end results were amazing. Here are 4 themes that emerged from the session: - Green trees look happier and attract our site. Please lets keep our eyes happy. Let it be a green world. - We want a clean and green environment so even the aliens feel like visiting us - Living tree- Dying tree- Dead tree...We need living trees to keep living ourselves - Right is to see green trees and Wrong is to cut green trees and litter the surroundings with plastic... and man does wrong

Cerca de 300 catadores da Cooperativa de Reciclagem de Sorocaba (Coreso) e representantes das demais cooperativas atuantes em vinte municípios paulistas: Sorocaba, Capão Bonito, Itararé, Itapetininga, Guapiara, Pilar do Sul, São Miguel Arcanjo, Piedade, Salto de Pirapora, Itapeva, Riversul, Campina do Monte Alegre, Boituva, Ribeirão Branco, Ribeirão Grande, Araçoiaba da Serra, Fartura, Taguaí, Itaberá e Coronel Macedo, que integram a Rede Solidária Cata-Vida saíram às ruas de Sorocaba, nessa quinta-feira, dia 5 de junho, na tradicional “Carrinhada” em comemoração ao Dia Mundial do Meio Ambiente. A atividade organizada pelo Ceadec – Centro de Estudos e Apoio ao Desenvolvimento, Emprego e Cidadania, acontece há 14 anos em Sorocaba e tem por objetivo chamar a atenção da população sorocabana para a importância da preservação e conservação do meio ambiente e da prática da coleta seletiva. A Carrinhada deste ano foi marcada como um ato em defesa da implantação de programas municipais de coleta seletiva com a inclusão e remuneração dos catadores e catadoras organizados em cooperativas na região de Sorocaba, em sintonia com a Lei Federal nº 12.305/2010, que instituiu a Política Nacional de Resíduos Sólidos. A Lei determina que a partir de agosto de 2014, somente os materiais que não sejam passíveis de reciclagem poderão ser encaminhados aos aterros sanitários. Ou seja, a coleta seletiva deve ser prioridade nos municípios e deverá ser implantada com a participação das cooperativas de catadores de materiais recicláveis. "É inadmissível que Sorocaba esteja a revelia da legislação e que por falta de planejamento também esteja fazendo com que nós munícipes paguemos cerca de 250 reais por tonelada a uma empresa privada para aterrar 15.700 toneladas por mês de resíduos sólidos ”, ressaltou a presidente do Ceadec, Rita de Cássia Gonçalves Viana. A catadora presidente da Coreso, Patrícia de Sene, agradeceu aos participantes e comentou sobre a importância do evento. “Queremos ser reconhecidos por essa cidade."Queremos que o poder público faça a coleta seletiva acontecer de forma decente nessa cidade. Hoje o dia do meio ambiente é um marco para a nossa luta, pedindo os nossos direitos, valorização e reconhecimento. Queremos a nossa remuneração porque é justo ser valorizado e reconhecido para que a gente tenha condições dignas de vida e para que possamos se fazer parte dessa cidade”, enfatizou.

Student volunteers at Kingston University took part in a Balsam Bash on the 4th and 5th of June leading up to WED. A Balsam Bash is where volunteers help to uproot the invasive species Himalayan Balsam, which can overtake river banks, causing winter erosion, and losses of plant diversity. Himalayan Balsam is a very fast growing non-native species which spreads rapidly via its ‘exploding’ seed pods – one individual can produce up to 800 seeds, flinging each one as far as 7 metres away. The event gets repeated later this month along with litter collections,to prevent the litter entering our freshwater habitats.

Cities & Climate Change Challenges and Opportunities; For the first time in mankind history, over half of World’s population now lives in urban areas. This rapid increase of urban population has made millions of people across the world at risks of being affected by climate change impacts. All over the World, Cities and towns are already feeling the effects of climate change, resource depletion, waste plofilirietion, air pollution, food insecurity and slum over population. Most developing countries, Kenya included, do not have the mitigation and adaptive capacity to respond or prepared to face climate change impacts on cities’ settlements and on live hoods. Solution to these challenges therefore must be addressed at the local level, and then scaled to county, national and international level. Climate change impact is a big challenge to urban development planners and social frame work. Rapid physical and social planning and setup to cope with environmental degradation and climate change challenges is urgently needed. Nairobi is not exceptional. According to UNEP’s recent report, Nairobi will now be hosting UN-Environment Assembly, with full participation of UN-193 members of UNEP Governing Council.

WED 2014 as commemorated by CEGDEC commenced on May 30 and climaxed on June 5, 2014. Students in Primary and Secondary schools were sensitized through about global issues especially on Climate Change. 'Raise Your Voice and not the Sea Level was simplified, while the essence of World Environment Day was communicated as personalizing environmental issues, identifying each person’s role as well as being agents for the change the society has long waited for. A pictorial PowerPoint presentation was used to convey the message, while examples cited were simplified, homely and locally based. Locations covered were Faddy Academy (Nursery/Primary School), Littleland Junior School, SMA College (Secondary School), and Grandmates Secondary School. All the school are based in Jakande Estate, Oke-Afa, Lagos, Nigeria. The presentation emphasized on 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle); highlighted the point that waste in one community may be referred to as wealth or useful in another community and for this to be successfully implemented waste should be sorted out properly at the point of source before disposal which would enable the effective management of waste by the appropriate authority. Furthermore, some of the ways individuals can help combat global warming includes the use of Energy saving bulbs, planting of trees, cycling and walking, amongst several other examples cited. Emphasis was also laid on the slogan, "Protection of environment is everyone's responsibility". It was concluded that everyone is able to do their bit in several ways than one in saving the planet for future generations. Questions were entertained with clarification at the end. The take home assignment meant for follow up by the organization was a task to draw on cardboard papers by individual student on what they would love their environment to be. Likewise, ambassadors for the environment were recruited at the end of the exercise. Pictures were taken at each location.

Respected Sir, With due regards, We are going to submit the abstract and technical report from the concerned departments. The demonstration organized at river Beas which creates lot of problem during rainy season or most of the unseasonal rain and heavy cloud burst in the valley every year. Keeping in view the ground realities I started work on above said ILEFWS. Main features of the ILEFWS 1. This module has been designed mainly for the purpose of forewarning the community residing in the vicinity of river and its tributaries at the time of occurrence of flash floods. 2. This system is based upon the theory of floating and will go on sending alarm in flood or higher flood. 3. This system can work without power by using solar energy system and can work in inclement weather in case of failure of electricity. 4. This system has been designed by local material as available on site. 5. This system is cheap and result oriented and its use can be spread over whole of the region and will fulfill whole of the community at the time of occurrence. 6. This is the best alternative to the existing system prevailing at present. 7. The main attraction of this system is that can be monitored from a control room apart from the affected areas and does not require to visit the gauge site there by eliminating the risk involved by watching actual flood gauge site. 8. The cost of this module is affordable as compare to the latest technical and sophisticated so far. This system can be easily installed by some modifications and alterations which can give the best results as an when flood occur.

Society, Barbados

On the hills overlooking Consett Bay, on the rugged east coast of Barbados, sits an old building with a modern education system. The Codrington School offers all three world-renowned International Baccalaureate Programmes and as an independent school, our 10-11 year olds have a choice of whether or not to sit the Barbados Secondary School Entrance Exam. Within school we do an alternative to this that is designed to encompass the whole child, pushing and challenging these students in all areas of the curriculum. This takes its form as a 7 week, inquiry-based, concept-driven, student-led Exhibition project. This year, our class of nine PYP8 students was split into three groups and each group had to decide on a global issue or problem based around our Central Idea of “The variety of ways food resources are supplied and dispersed among humans”. This problem also had to have local relevance which required the students to go out into Barbados and explore. In our first two weeks of study the students visited places such as organic farmer’s markets, Oistins’ fish market, Emerald City’s Supercenter, and a fast-food chicken-based restaurant. We also had special guest visitors from Pinnacle Feeds and Slow Food to talk about their business and aims. It was also important to have team-building activities for these groups to bond; we went to look at fish populations in the Atlantis Submarine, took a hike on Walker’s Beach to look for Leatherback turtles and spent a night in our school library. After these provocations, one group decided on looking at the effects of Overfishing, while another explored Healthy Eating and its accessibility. The last group wanted to inquire into Deforestation for the sake of Agriculture. Each of these groups spent weeks sending emails, reading books and looking online to find information in their areas. They gathered their research to draw conclusions and work out what they could as Action to help counter the problems and issues they’ve studied. These ten, eleven and twelve year olds took on their projects with the modern technology available to them and made some interactive games, websites and displays. With sustainability in mind, much of their work was done on Google Docs, avoiding the paper waste. To finalize their Exhibition, they presented their findings and conclusions to the community in a big event at the school. Each subject was represented including performing arts, mathematics, language and science. As part of their Visual Arts they not only created displays for their presentation, they also designed and painted the amazing mural seen above with some of our creative parents from the community. The mural has been designed to represent sustainability in Barbados and the different concepts we have looked out throughout this project. The ideas learnt by these nine students will stay with them for a long time as they build up to become life-long learners and productive members of Barbadian society.

EXPRESA TLAZALA EN UN CARTEL 2014 Con mucho gusto anunciamos que por segundo año consecutivo, en el marco de la celebración del Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente, hoy realizamos el concurso: "Expresa TLAZALA en un cartel, 2014". Convocamos a los estudiantes de todas las escuelas de nuestro pueblo, y a la comunidad libre en general, a participar en la elaboración de un cartel que expresara las bellezas y riquezas naturales de nuestro municipio. Todos los carteles participaron en un concurso y se premiaron a los tres primeros lugares de cada categoría. Previo al día del concurso fuimos a todas las escuelas a dar pláticas a los niños sobre la naturaleza de nuestro municipio. Durante una hora grupos de estudiantes de entre 8 y 18 años de edad (de 4º de primaria a 3º de preparatoria) escucharon sobre la gran diversidad natural que albergan nuestros bosques, arroyos y manantiales. Vieron mapas de bosques y fotos de plantas, hongos y animales que los habitan. Reflexionaron sobre los problemas que amenazan el entorno natural, como el manejo de la basura, el manejo inapropiado del bosque, las plagas, los incendios, la tala no controlada y la contaminación de los ríos. Además, todos respondieron un cuestionario que busca explorar cuál es su percepción sobre los recursos que nos proporciona la naturaleza. En el concurso participaron más de 110 carteles. La mayoría fueron de primarias y secundarias (8 a 15 años). También algunos adultos se animaron a comunicarnos sus impresiones en un cartel. ¡Fue un encuentro muy entusiasta! Agradecemos al Consejo de Cuenca de Guadalupe y especialmente al H. Ayuntamiento de Isidro Fabela que nos apoyó con los premios y con parte de la logística. Pero más que a nadie agradecemos a todos los profesores y estudiantes que tan animadamente participaron expresando sus ideas de Tlazala en un cartel. ¡GRACIAS A TODOS! TLAZALA.COM

Mi nombre es Diana Laura Martinez soy alumna de la esc. CETIS 110. Nuestro profesor José Manuel Rojas García nos imparte la materia de ecología y durante todo este semestre hemos estado trabajando en un proyecto ecológico, mi equipo y yo decidimos trabajar en un manantial. Nuestra pequeña ciudad de San Andrés Tuxtla cuenta con muchos manantiales pero desgraciadamente todos están en malas condiciones y contaminados por el hombre. Nosotros trabajamos en un manantial ubicado en la col. el jardín, y nuestro propósito es rescatar ese lugar, que años atrás era visitado por varias personas y podían disfrutar del agua limpia. otro de nuestros propósitos son: 1)concientizar a las personas que habitan al rededor del manantial ya que son las que mas contaminan ese lugar y no lo saben cuidar 2) creamos unos filtros para la purificación de las aguas grises que son arrogadas diariamente y en cada momento al agua. Ha sido un trabajo muy duro porque los habitantes de esa zona no nos escuchan y no se dejan sensibilizar, siguen tirando constantemente basura al río; pero nosotros no nos damos aun por vencidos y seguimos luchando para poder alcanzar nuestros objetivos y que el manantial vuelva a ser lo que era antes, que las personas puedan visitarlo a menudo y divertirse.

Escola Idalino Afonso recebe palestra sobre Educação Ambiental, desenvolvida através de parceria entre Seção de Meio Ambiente e curso de Geografia da Universidade Federal de Ouro Preto. A Seção de Meio Ambiente em Parceria com o curso de Geografia da Universidade Federal de Ouro Preto-Ufop polo Ipatinga, realizou uma palestra com o tema “O nosso futuro é agora. A escola municipal Idalino Afonso no Águas Claras, foi a escolhida dando seguimento a programação da Semana do Meio Ambiente municipal. Com clientela heterogênea e localizada na divisa de 4 bairros, a escola dentre tantas foi escolhida para se trabalhar um tema tão relevante e atual. Segundo a professora Stela Mares, a linguagem utilizada teria de ser o diferencial, lúdica, simples e clara, com objetivo de prender a atenção das crianças e de se passar a mensagem. Para Santiago, temos oportunidade ao mesmo tempo que nos é imposto com grande desafio trabalhar a educação ambiental nas escolas, ainda para ele, na atualidade a educação é diferenciada, principalmente por causa da evolução das tecnologias e a rapidez com que se propagam informações. Se no passado não tivemos a oportunidade de estudar o meio ambiente, hoje o tema é colocado para se trabalhar em sala, e o desafio imposto aos docentes para trabalhar sensibilização dos alunos é desafiador. O tema deve ser desenvolvidos e conduzido, conforme recomenda os parâmetros nacionais curriculares. Na ocasião, os trabalhado desenvolvidos com maquetes confeccionadas pelos alunos do 5 período do curso de geografia da tutora Celeste, foi o grande atrativo, as crianças se mostraram muito curiosas em observar um pequeno espaço de uma cidade representada com toda sua gama e interação. O polo localizado no bairro Bom Retiro, é a porta aberta de umas das mais conceituadas universidades públicas de Minas Gerais.

We celebrated World Environment Day today by distributing free plants to individuals and also employees of corporate organizations through "Share a Plant" campaign. We are nearing to declare our Facebook "Green Moment " contest. Our celebrations will continue this whole month and we are declaring June, as Environment Month. We are an online store for Green gifting, plants and gardening tools. We are just not into business; we believe we can set example for all, as agents of change. Our plant distribution drive was a success in Pune, and we gave away green gifts in reputed organizations such as Infosys, IBM, Sokrati and many more. We want each individual to have a plant buddy at his or her office desks. There are many air purifying indoor plants, which enhance the work efficiency of office employees through reduction in stress and sickness. We insist organizations to make their offices aesthetically appealing through plants and also use live plants gifts as alternative to normal gifting. Sharing and gifting a plant comes with many advantages like reducing carbon footprints. We have an event in line coming up with ITC and many more. We also gave plants to people and spread smiles and environmental awareness and encouraged them for Green Gifting. Our “Share a Plant Campaign” aims at spreading environmental awareness, revolutionizing green thinking and generating love for Mother Nature! It calls for sharing a plant- one plant per person! . Individuals can gift it to someone or keep it for themselves! Rolling Nature encourages everyone to do his or her bit towards environmental responsibility. We are using eco friendly bags made of newspaper and jute strings for the campaign. We have created employment for rural women through, Sudha, an NGO, initiative by Sudha chemical industries, Pune. We commit to corporate social responsibility and are proud to incorporate that in our small organization. If we can take corporate social responsibility then everybody else can. We are growing with a noble cause and for a noble cause. Nature will keep rolling if we all wish to! Green gifting can change our perception towards gifting altogether; it encourages and inspires our future generations to have an emotion towards nature, which is fading during this superfast technological age. We ask organizations and individuals to adopt green gifting -for better cleaner and greener tomorrow. Gift a plant and celebrate Life! Join us at https://www.facebook.com/RollingNature

A Semana Municipal do Meio Ambiente foi aberta oficialmente nesta segunda-feira (2), às 9h30. Com uma palestra sobre sustentabilidade e meio ambiente, um grupo de profissionais da limpeza do município ouviu atentamente os desafios que são colocados para administração e o futuro da política ambiental do município. Logo após, o grupo realizou plantio 53 mudas de várias espécies em área do córrego Achado, bem como foram fixadas placas com apelo ao meio ambiente. Principal curso d'água municipal, o corpo d'água que nasce na serra do Achado, corta grande parte da APA-Paraíso, e em vários pontos têm suas águas aproveitadas para recreação. Com muitas cachoeiras, e com mata ciliar bastante degrada na parte central, o curso d'água merece atenção diferenciada, por ter seu traçado na área urbana degradado. A ideia foi sensibilizar os profissionais que diretamente trabalham com um dos grandes desafios do século XXI que é a gestão de resíduos, e ao mesmo tempo fazer com que esses profissionais sejam multiplicadores da ideia. A programação prossegue até sexta-feira (6), segundo o gerente da seção do meio ambiente, a programação terá a participação de várias secretarias e alunos de escolas municipais

Bueno en este proyecto hacemos acto de presencia de unos ejemplares de dos o mas iguanas verdes que se encuentran en un espacio determinado de esta institución la cual es nombrada UMA (UNIDAD DE MANEJO AMBIENTAL). Contamos con dos ejemplares (una hembra y un macho) las cuales esperamos ver su reproducción y de tal manera ver la crianza de las iguanas: nacimiento, desarrollo, alimentación y algunas características propias. sucesivamente nosotros los alumnos con ayuda del profesor JOSE MANUEL ROJAS GARCÍA veremos sobre su alimentación, higiene, y posteriormente el manejo de sus encuvacion para que esto nos ayude y así aprendemos sobre este reptil. Bueno después de hacer el espacio para que se establezcan las iguanas, también nosotros dimos platicas a todos los grupos de la institución con el fin de que estén informados y cuiden a las iguanas pues ya que son parte de nuestra vida, son seres vivos que merecen el cuidado de todos nosotros. El proyecto lo estamos realizando 9 compañeros y nuestro docente, en la materia de ECOLOGÍA.

bueno mas que nada es un proyecto ecológico para mantener limpias nuestras áreas turísticas , como lo es este manantial ubicado en la calle Salvador Díaz Mirón en San Andrés Tuxtla Veracruz. Con el fin ya antes mencionado de tener limpias nuestras áreas verdes para no perderlas, de decir, algunas de ella han sido ya perdidas por la contaminación eminente y extasiaba hecha con irresponsabilidad de todas las personas que viven al rededor y por los que por ahí pasan. El objetivo es que al verlo limpio no lo contaminen y así poder cuidarlo. :)

Trabajo en el Departamento de Recursos Naturales y Ambientales de Puerto Rico, en la División del Plan de Aguas. Como Bióloga Ambiental reclutada por esa división, tengo varias responsabilidades, todas dirigidas a la conservación y manejo de los recursos de agua fresca (dulce) en nuestra isla. Qué cómo celebré el Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente 2014? Leyendo varias referencias que me permitan actualizar la información sobre las especies de peces nativos en nuestros ríos, todos diádromos (que se mueven entre el agua dulce y salada, ya sea con fines reproductivos, alimenticios o estacionales), que afecta la migración de estas especies, y que se podría hacer para revertir las obstrucciones, entre otras cosas. Amo, valoro y trabajo por nuestros ecosistemas, y celebro cada día, tratando de actuar con la conciencia y el respeto que merece cada uno de los seres con los cuales comparto un espacio en este Planeta... Doy gracias a Dios, esa Energía Divina que mueve nuestro Universo, por permitirme habitar en un lugar tan ecológicamente valioso, extremadamente hermoso, y que tanta Energía nos provee. Doy gracias por entender que el Planeta Tierra es un ser lleno de vida, y que si el vive sano, cada ser en el estará sano igual... y viceversa... Feliz Día del Medio Ambiente!!!

En la clase de inglés nos reconocimos como habitantes de un entorno costero, dependiente del mar en muchos aspectos: geográfico, climático, económico y recreativo. Mencionamos las especies marinas autóctonas cuyo nombre en inglés conocemos, aprendimos nuevo vocabulario y finalmente vimos un video donde los propios animales marinos nos contaron cómo el cambio climático los afecta. Bajo la consigna Todos Podemos Contribuir, los chicos propusieron distintas acciones que tiendan a evitar el daño al ambiente. La acción consensuada fue GASTAR MENOS: apagar luces y artefactos eléctricos que no se utilizan, ahorrar agua al ducharnos y al cepillarnos los dientes, cuidar los útiles escolares para no tener que comprar nuevos, no malgastar hojas de papel. Los chicos también propusieron una medida para ayudar a que todos tomemos conciencia y consiste en contarle a familiares y conocidos lo que sucede con el incremento del nivel del mar.

Proyecto Pintemos de Amarillo En Octubre de 2013 se obsequiaron 350 plantones de árboles de guayacán amarillo a niños de escuelas primarias tanto públicas como privadas. Los niños tenían la responsabilidad de cuidar los árboles mientras que los mismos crecían junto a ellos. Este sábado corresponde tallar el crecimiento de plantones (bebes) y el tamaño de crecimiento con los niños. Para Octubre de este año, se estarán llevando a los niños cuyos plantones tengan el tamaño adecuado al sector de Campana, un cerro que necesita ser reforestado. La comunidad circunvecina esta alerta al proyecto y estarán pendientes de la adopción. Con la esperanza en Dios y en la Madre Naturaleza, el sector fue devastado por incendio forestal en el verano pasado, esperemos que los arboles crezcan y que la naturaleza se pinte de amarillo. NUESTROS NIÑOS PINTARAN SIN LAPICES O PINTURAS. En la segunda fase para mediados de agosto estaremos reforestando cerca de la rivera del canal de Panamá que este año celebra nuestro primer centenario. El Canal de Panamá depende de las lluvias para mantener el tránsito de buques, es nuestro principal activo, nuestros niños estarán dibujando sobre la ecología del Canal de Panamá.

Este proyecto trata del manejo y cría de iguanas, por la cuál establecimos una UMA (unidad de manejo ambiental) con las debidas medidas de seguridad, higiene , estableciendo una cultura de cuidado con distintas platicas realizadas a toda la escuela incluyendo maestros y alumnos. También se podría observar su reproducción con dos ejemplares masculino y femenino , con estos dos mostraremos sus características para determinar su sexo y distintas faces de sus vidas algunos ejemplos de estas serían : cambio de piel , crecimiento , incubación de sus crías , alimentación , etc. Con la supervición del maestro y colaboración de distintos compañeros y voluntarios se llevarán las acciones que se mencionaron anteriormente. Otro aspecto del proyecto a largo plazo es con la reproducción (crías) soltar una parte al medio ambiente y otra parte venderla a nivel local , municipal , estatal, nacional e internacional. Por último esperemos que este proyecto sea un exito y cuando nosotros egresemos las nuevas generaciones manejen de nuevo este muy interesante proyecto.

El proyecto en proceso que estamos realizando es el de la cría de iguana, está basado en el acondicionamiento de un lugar para su manejo, una UMA(Unidad de Manejo Ambiental). Permitiendo que la comunidad estudiantil del plantel comprendan e interactúen de buena manera con el ciclo de vida de está tan importante especie. Ya con esto y después de haber realizado un estudio completo de está especie(en que consiste su alimentación,su cambió de piel, etc.) categorizada cómo: especie sujeta a protección especial; se pretende analizar el comportamiento de estás mismas, su alimentación y poder conseguir que se reproduzcan para que de igual manera se aprenda sobre este procesó en dicha especie. Si se consigue la reproducción de los ejemplares se pretende contribuir a su liberamiento para que la especie logré vivir sin riesgo alguno. Pretendemos hacer conciencia en cada persona para que aporte su granito de arena en está lucha por la conservación de todas las especies.

My friend and I started and ecological movement at our school, the Lycée Georges Duby in Luynes, near Aix-en-Provence in southern France. Our goals are to set up a recycling system in the school, and get the people in the school to be familiar with recycling, and also to get the Green School label (Eco Ecole). We regurlary organise the so called Earth Days, (our first one was on February the 20th 2014). During these days, we propose different activties, such as documentary viewing, several campaigns to promote ecological innovations or to give advice on how to protect the planet, but most of all we realise a big cleansing of the school. During the first Earth Day, we collected around 16 garbadge bags of all sorts of different garbage, going from cigarettes, to empty cans, papers, and even mugs or empty deodorants. Today, however, we collected only around 6 bags, and this shows how a situation can improve in several months. We love what we do, and we hope we will achieve our goals.

El Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente (DMMA) es una de las herramientas principales de las Naciones Unidas para impulsar la sensibilización y acción por el medio ambiente en todo el mundo. A lo largo de los años, esta celebración ha crecido hasta convertirse en una plataforma global en la que participan personas de más de 100 países. Además, es TU DÍA, el día en el que puedes actuar por el medio ambiente, de tal forma, que la suma de todas las acciones individuales genere un gran impacto positivo en el planeta. El Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente es el momento para darse cuenta de que el cuidado de la Tierra es responsabilidad de todos y de convertirnos en agentes de cambio. "Alza tu voz, no el nivel del mar". Bajo este esquema Buenavista del Cobre, SA de CV, empresa de GRUPO MEXICO líder mundial en el sector minero, se sumó a esta celebración con varias actividades: 1).- Campaña de limpieza en carretera y camino de acceso a las operaciones mineras, consistente en la recuperación de 23 m3 de residuos dispersos a lo largo de la carretera en un trayecto aproximado de 3000m; 2).- Reforestación en área de invernadero forestal y zona del arroyo que cruza la UMA Lobos-Guajolotes con 1800 bellotas y 1000 individuos de especies nativas rivereñas, tales como sauces, álamos, huérigos y cúmaro; 3.- El relanzamiento de la campaña en etapa permanente de la recolección de pilas alcalinas a nivel municipal, con la aportación de 400 contenedores especiales para ello, lo que en conjunto con el Instituto Tecnológico de Cananea, constituye no solo un gran esfuerzo , sino una oportunidad para contribuir en un cambio de cultura comunitario y por mucho tiempo, que permitirá darle un destino ambientalmente seguro a un residuo que pudiera parecer insignificante, pero que puede generar un alto impacto a nivel global; 4.- La generación de mosaicos ambientales, que con ayuda del talento de los niños de las escuelas, quedarán grabados en roca, para enviar un mensaje de conservación a los visitantes del Invernadero Forestal de Buenavista del Cobre SA de CV con una capacidad de producción de 1.5 millones de plantas por año. Simbólicamente y con la participación de aproximadamente 200 personas, Buenavista del Cobre celebra el día más importante del Calendario Ambiental del Planeta. 5 de Junio Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente, celebrémoslo siempre!

En nuestro proyecto tenemos por objetivo cuidar y proteger a los manantiales que son una gran riqueza para nuestro país. En nuestro proyecto tenemos un manantial de azufre que descubrieron nuestros antepasados por lo que se ha cuidado durante todo este tiempo, debido a que es una gran riqueza para toda la gente que habitamos , mi equipo y yo decidimos mantenerlos en condiciones optimas para que la gente pueda visitarlo y vea lo bello y valioso que es lo que la naturaleza nos ofrece.Ademas este manantial tiene mucha importancia ya que la gente utiliza el agua del mismo para,fines terapéuticos.

Me enteré de este evento y de la invitación de la UNEP, para registrar las actividades por el "día mundial del medio ambiente" por el servicio de correo institucional de la Universidad Autónoma de Coahuila, que difunde eventos y noticias de impacto local-mundial. En la presente semana se invitó a los vecinos de una plaza pública rodeada por 12 casas habitación, para implementar en ella entre 4 y 10 camas de huertos bio-intensivos comunitarios para sembrar, cuidar y colectar -comunitariamente- hortaliza para auto-consumo; y que en lugar de sembrar pasto...sembremos árboles de la región -huizaches y mezquites- que nos den su sombra generosa, que no consumen agua de riego, sino que la buscan en el subsuelo y la esperan del cielo. Se convocó además al departamento de Educación Medioambiental del Municipio (Maestra Martha Toledo) para que nos apoyen en lo que se pueda. Por otra parte, recibiremos capacitación in-situ de la Secretaría del Medio Ambiente del estado de Coahuila, a través de los talleres de huertos bio-intensivos que organiza el Parque "El Chapulín". Este sería la primera plaza pública en este municipio con huertos bio-intensivos para el autoconsumo y el fortalecimiento del tejido social. Lo planteamos como un proyecto "piloto" a replicar!! Considero que quien sepa obtener agua potable, sembrar y cosechar sus alimentos tendrá verdaderas posibilidades de sobrevivir a las amenazas que el planeta entero sufre por la avaricia de unos cuantos y una educación depredadora e ineficaz. Es una iniciativa personal que espero se transforme en colectiva! Yo preparo composta con mis desechos orgánicos vegetales, en pequeña escala, pero algo es más que nada!

“Esta empresa é signatária da Rede Brasileira do Pacto Global da ONU” Em comemoração ao Dia Mundial do Meio Ambiente, iniciamos a Oficina de Horta Vertical, utilizando garrafas pet, com alguns colaboradores das Faculdades Santa Cruz. A continuidade do projeto será nos dias 16 e 18/06/2014, onde mobilizaremos todos os funcionários técnicos-administrativos da Instituição. Serão aproximadamente 137 pessoas, que irão participar da Oficina de Horta Vertical. O intuito é propiciar um melhor entendimento do que é Responsabilidade Social, juntamente com os 8 Objetivos do Milênio e o Pacto Global, dos quais as Faculdades Santa Cruz são signatárias. Tendo como um dos objetivos da instituição, proporcionar o consumo dos alimentos cultivados a todos os funcionários, em especial os que almoçam em nosso refeitório. Com o plantio de hortaliças e temperos em garrafas pet, temos a possibilidade de reaproveitar essa matéria-prima, que muitas vezes é descartada de forma incorreta. Por sermos uma Instituição de Ensino Superior, temos a atribuição de lapidar o pensamento humano. Cabe a nós, gerarmos atividades que correspondam a nova maneira de se ver o meio em que vivemos, e como podemos contribuir, positivamente, para o desenvolvimento humano e ambiental no qual estamos inseridos.

For the second consecutive biennium, the Institute’s total number of beneficiaries has topped the 50,000 benchmark. The 847 events delivered by UNITAR over the 2012-2013 budget cycle (ranging from training and related briefings, courses, seminars and workshops to events reaching out to the public at large, such as conferences, public lectures and side events) produced nearly 44,000 of these beneficiaries, or some 86 per cent. The remaining 14 per cent represented indirect beneficiaries and were produced by events organized by other entities in which UNITAR provided inputs.

Tripoli , Libyan Arab Jamahiriya

Dr Bindra key note address followed by six other inspirational lectures at Medical Technology Faculty of Tripoli university attracted over 150 delegates from all walks of life be it elites from universities, Academies & Research Centers, representatives from Ministry of Education & Ministry of Health, Youth Organization, Youth Clubs & NGOs like the Libyan Iltizam Institution for Codes of Ethics to name a few. It helped to rally all environmental and sustainability groups to be part of the celebration. Both organizations and individuals present pledged actions that are positive for the environment on World Environment Day this 5th June. After highlighting the specific plight of small island developing states he presented an overview of numerous UNCSD Rio+20 Focal Point Libya initiatives designed to ensure a healthy, secure and sustainable communities, environment, and economy. He demonstrated by examples that how treating with care and respect Libyan environment is being undertaken by involving children and young people in environmental issues of coastal communities —such as the disproportionate impact of climate change, the loss of biodiversity and forests, and overfishing. He said that it was a huge honour for him to become a UNCSD Rio+20 Focal Point & goodwill ambassador in conflict ridden Libya for the environment. In the midst of increasing global threats such as climate change, the drastic decline of biodiversity and the extreme vulnerability of small island nations, his presentation mainly dwelled on best practices & lessons learnt from The Global Island Partnership that promotes action for island conservation and sustainable livelihoods through inspiring leadership, catalyzing commitments and facilitating collaboration was highly appreciated, well received and accepted for its application toward a resilient and sustainable future of not only Libya but for our entire planet. Dr Bindra challenged not only Libyan but also both the regional & the international community, to step up and exceed the conservation targets set by international conventions and treaties like Biodiversity Convention, Climate Change Concention and sustainable livelihood. His passionate appeal of pledge brought all the stakeholders to come together and commit to effectively conserve at least 30% of the near-shore marine resources and take pledging to promote 20 good environmental practices.

This year's World Environment Day with the theme (SIDS) was celebrated by us in a special way. Our core message for this year celebration is centered on climatic change the major threat of our environment. And our targets are the children (teenagers). The aim of this year celebration is to enlighten the teenagers on the need to pay more attention on our environment. We believe that teenagers are the leaders of tomorrow and if we most save planet earth, then there is need for us to get them involve. Also, it is known that the heart of a child is tender and ever willing to learn so if properly guided on the issue surrounding environment, most of the challenges we are faced with will be a thing of the past in future. It is in line with these that we decided in this year WED to engaged five student each form six secondary schools in a pet project that ranges from Environmental awareness, Setting of Gardens, Environmental friendly product research and finally Quiz Competition. These six schools are; 1) Redeemer's International Secondary Schools 2) Malvan International School 3) Dietams International School 4) Obiye Academy 5) Emarid College 6) Sure Foundation School. The pet project actually took them six months of active work and commitment. On our tour for supervision of the pet project, we were amazed at the level of creativity, commitment and outcome of the project. On the 3rd of June being the climax of the whole event the students were full with excitement ready to share their experience with fellow mates from other schools. The programme out line for that day was; 1) A presentation on climatic change by ACEP 2) A talk on need for sanitation by RIWAMA 3) Quiz competition 4) Pet project presentation by students 5) Award Presentation to the three best performing schools. The whole event was colorful and one to be always remembered of.

Talara, Peru

Talara, Perú.- Con motivo del Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente, SAVIA Perú organizó tres jornadas de avistamiento de aves, orientadas a la sensibilización ambiental de 76 jóvenes estudiantes de los colegios de los distritos costeros de La Brea-Negritos y Lobitos. Los objetivos de las actividades efectuadas fue promover entre los jóvenes el contacto con la naturaleza, el reconocimiento de la diversidad de las aves de su entorno y la protección de su hábitat. En este sentido, en forma previa a las actividades programadas con jóvenes escolares, un especialista en aves y el equipo de protección ambiental de SAVIA Perú, recorrieron los distritos de Negritos y Lobitos para determinar rutas y zona propicias para contar e identificar aves de estos hábitats. Los días 2, 3 y 4 de junio, los jóvenes participantes identificaron 31 especies de aves en la zona urbana y costera de La Brea y Lobitos. Previo al inicio de cada jornada, los jóvenes fueron capacitados por un ornitólogo sobre la identificación de aves y con la ayuda de una cartilla de aves y binoculares, realizaron la jornada satisfactoriamente. Los colegios que participaron fueron: Colegio La Brea, Colegio Jose Pardo y Barreda y Colegio Lobitos. Agradecemos a sus Directores y sus profesores del curso de Ciencia, Tecnología y Ambiente que acompañaron a los alumnos en todo momento. Fue muy destacable el entusiasmo de los jóvenes por identificar las aves, algunas de las cuales son endémicas a los bosques secos del noroeste peruano, como la Tortolita Peruana (Columbina cruziana), Perico de Cabeza Roja (Psittacara erythrogenys), Carpintero de Dorso Escarlata (Veniliornis callonotus), Periquito Esmeralda (Forpus coelestis), Minero Peruano (Geositta peruviana), Cola-Espina Acollarado (Synallaxis stictothorax) y Cucarachero con Ceja (Cantorchilus superciliaris). Esta zona que forma parte de la Región de Endemismo para Aves Tumbesina, es reconocido mundialmente por su alto número de especies endémicas, muchas de la cuales están en vías de extinción. Es así que los jóvenes aprendieron de su entorno natural y el rol de cado uno en su conservación.
