World Environment Day

Today is World Environment Day (WED), organised by the United Nations’ to raise awareness and encourage action to protect the environment.

The theme of this year's WED is small islands, to tie in with the International Year of Small Island Developing States. The objective of the event is to "encourage a greater understanding of the importance of 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".
