5th June marks the World Environment Day (WED) and is of prime importance to raise global awareness to take positive environmental action to protect nature and the planet Earth. United Nations Environment Programme runs "World Environment Day to increase awareness and encourage people worldwide to protect our environment. This World Environment Day aims to inspire more people than ever before to take action to prevent the growing strain on planet Earth’s natural systems from reaching the breaking point.

Angola is the host country of this year and the theme for 2016 is "Go Wild for Life” (Zero Tolerance for the Illegal Wildlife Trade).

This theme highlights the fight against the illegal trade in wildlife, which erodes precious biodiversity and threatens the survival of elephants, rhinos and tigers, as well as many other species and thus robbing us of our natural heritage and driving whole species to the brink of extinction. The killing and smuggling is also undermining economies and ecosystems, fuelling organized crime, and feeding corruption and insecurity across the globe. It also undermines our economies, communities and security.This year’s slogan "Go Wild for Life" encourages you to spread the word about wildlife crime and the damage it does, and to challenge all those around you to do what they can to prevent it.

The Symbol of Environment day are often softer shades of green, brown and blue which signifies the Earth's features, such as snowy mountains, clean beaches, unpolluted rivers, and photos of natural flora and fauna, including fern leaves.

WED is a big celebration, engaging millions across the globe through events on the ground in over 70 countries. Every year, participants, young and old, organize clean up campaigns, art exhibits, tree-planting drives, and concerts, dance recitals, recycling drives, social media campaigns and different contests themed around caring for the planet.
