NEWS: World Environment Day 2018: tell us your plans

By on

Every 5th of June, World Environment Day (WED) is celebrated globally. On top of all global and local initiatives to protect the environment, celebrating WED is the United Nations’ principal vehicle to encourage worldwide awareness and action for the protection of the environment.


First held in 1974, the day has been a flagship campaign for raising awareness on old and emerging environmental issues, such as global warming, marine pollution, overpopulation, sustainable consumption and wildlife crime. The day has become a global platform for public outreach, with participation from over 143 countries annually.

Each year, WED has a new theme that major corporations, NGOs, communities, governments and celebrities worldwide adopt to advocate environmental causes. In 2018, the theme is ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’.

To make our contribution to the day, we would like to know about the activities you are planning to host on the day or any other environmental initiative you are taking in 2018.

Please send us brief details (two paragraphs) and photographs or illustrations of your planned activities and work. Safety Management will collate your inputs and publish some of them in the June edition of the magazine, or will follow up with coverage of the best initiatives later this year. The deadline is 10 May.
