“I’m with Nature”, the theme for World Environment Day 2017, calls us to reconnect with nature, to go outside and show that we are #WithNature.
This year’s host country Canada got to choose the theme and will be at the centre of celebrations around the planet. This year’s theme invites you to think about how we are part of nature and how intimately we depend on it. It challenges us to find fun and exciting ways to experience and cherish this vital relationship.
World Environment Day is one of the main ways through which the United Nations encourages positive action for the environment. Celebrating World Environment Day reminds us of the importance of our planet Earth and brings forth the inspirational power of individual actions that collectively become a force for positive change.
“To protect creation, to protect every man and every woman, to look upon them with tenderness and love, is to open up a horizon of hope; it is to let a shaft of light break through the heavy clouds; it is to bring the warmth of hope!”
