WED That Was - 2000
Time to Act
The theme, Time to Act, is pioneered the digital presence for World Environment Day celebrations on the World Wide Web. It represented the dawning of a new era in which it was no longer possible for mankind to remain dormant but needed to take positive action for the environment.
Broadly, World Environment Day agenda is to give a human face to environmental issues; empower people to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development; promote an understanding that communities are pivotal to changing attitudes towards environmental issues; and advocate partnership which will ensure all nations and peoples enjoy a safer and more prosperous future.
Overall, World Environment Day in 2000 wanted people to know and accept that it was not just another day!
