Celebrate World Environment Day

1st Jan 2011

Every year the world celebrates World Environment Day (WED) on the 5th of June. This is an occasion for all scouts around the world to demonstrate their commitment to preserving the environment.

This year, WED supports the UN’s International Year of Forests with the theme: "Forests: Nature at Your Service" which underscores the many essential life-sustaining values that forests provide and the intrinsic link between our quality of life and the health of forest ecosystems.

You can find on UNEP web site a guide designed to inspire you with exciting ideas and give you practical suggestions for organizing your event as well as a map where you can register your activities.

Do not forget to send us your pictures to be added in the World Environment Day photo gallery
