The annual celebration of it depends on the particular theme of the year (declared by the UN) which focuses on implementing some new and effective plans to save the environment.
My dear friends, this event is celebrated globally in more than 100 countries because this issue cannot be solved individually by one country. It is a global issue and needs to be solved globally by the involvement of all the countries worldwide.

The host city of this campaign in 2016 was Angola. First time it was celebrated in 1973 with the theme of “Only one Earth”.
It aims to engage and draw attention of millions of people including political and health organizations from different countries across the world to make new plans and implement them accordingly. It is very necessary to address the issues like wastage and losses of food, increasing global warming, deforestation, pollution, industrialization, etc in order to control the negative environmental changes. Its celebration focuses on carbon neutrality, forest management, managing greenhouse effect, promoting bio-fuels production, use of hydro-power to produce electricity, encouraging people to use solar water heaters, use of solar system, promoting coral reefs and mangroves restoration and other effectives of environmental preservation.

World Environment Day Speech 2
Good morning to the Excellencies, Principal Sir, Sir, Madam and my dear friends. My name is … I study in class … First of all I would like to say a big thank to my class teacher for allowing me to speech at this great opportunity. My dear friends, we have gathered here to celebrate a most important day called as world environment day. I will recite a speech on the importance of celebrating world environment day. I have also mentioned the point of what we are losing day by day with the declining condition of our environment. Yes friends, it is necessary to be discussed among us so that we can know about world environment day and other points related to it.
My dear friends, UN had established a special day named as ‘World Environment Day’ in 1972 to save worldwide environment for our better future on the earth. In the happiness of worldwide technological development, we have forgotten that we are losing something too. Such developments have given happiness to us however on the other hand; it has snatched many natural heritages from us. My dear friends, do you know that our many favorite foods have been predicted to go extinct just because of our mistakes have been done for years in the form of developments like high use of electricity, deforestation, industrialization, direct sewage outing to the big river canals, invention of polythenes, etc harmful inventions. Such inventions have given rise to the global warming, pollution, rise of sea level, etc and declining the healthy condition of environment.
World Environment Day is a great annual event celebrated globally on 5th of June to understand our mistakes and act positively to neutralize the bad effects of those mistakes. It has been established to act actively on its various objectives. It was first celebrated in 1973 by the United Nations General Assembly and United Nations Environment Programme to address various environmental issues like global warming, food shortages, deforestation, etc. According to the scientists, in the near future more than two-thirds of flora and fauna will be extinct because of human-induced environmental changes. Our future generations will have no access to the foods like honey, coffee, king corn, chocolate and sea food because of huge changes in the climate and environment.
We like honey a lot and want to add one spoon of it to our daily diet especially morning smoothie. Soon, it will be called as liquid gold and we will get it at jewelers shop because 2 out of 5 honeybees are on the way to extinction due to the high level use of insecticides and pesticides in farming as well as increasing temperature and changing weather conditions. Such herbicides are toxic to the bees and other pollinators. Decline in the population of bees will also affect the food supply as they responsible to pollinate around 250,000 species of plants and 90 food crops.
Ever increasing rate of climate changes is snatching the chocolate from us. The main cause of difficulty in producing cocoa is continuous rising temperature and change in weather patterns. High temperature causes evapotranspiration from the cocoa trees means lack of water from the trees which ultimately lowers cocoa production. Its production will diminish more by 2030.
High temperature, extremely changing weather conditions and depleting water supply are causing rust and fungus which inhibiting the production of coffee. The production of seafood is also in danger and decreasing due to the global warming. Numbers of water-species, fishes including planktons are on the way to extinct. King corn is also saying us bye-bye because of the huge climatic changes and global warming. Deforestation at large-scale is pushing many plant species like palm oil, etc towards extinction.
Dear friends, we need to do something effective in order to reduce the rate of climate change as well as save many natural resources for better life on the earth in future. 3R techniques (reduce, reuse and recycle) can be very effective in lessening the impact of our bad activities over natural ecosystem. We should start from small but effective steps like switch to organic food from inorganic food, use of natural fertilizers over chemical fertilizers, reduce use of electricity, reuse things, recycle wates, stop deforestation, save wild animals, etc to reduce the rate climate changes. Our positive steps will really help in solving environmental issues in near future.
Healthy Environment, Healthy Future!
World Environment Day Speech 3
Good morning to the Excellencies, Principal Sir, Sir, Madam, my seniors and my dear friends. My name is … I study in class … I would like to speech today on the topic world environment day at this great event. I am very thankful to my class teacher that he has given me the opportunity to speech at this event. My dear friends, as we all are well aware of this event, we must be aware about the objectives of world environment day. Today, I will recite a speech focusing on objectives of the campaign and our own responsibilities regarding environment. Yes friends, it’s we who can bring better positives changes in the declining environment. So, it is necessary to discus about this topic among us.
World Environment Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972 to celebrate annually on 5th of June. It was first celebrated in 1973 aiming to inspire worldwide people to take positives action regarding prevention of environment on planet earth. Illegal trade in wildlife for many years has eroded our precious biodiversity and threatened the survival of wild animals such as elephants, tigers, rhinos, gorillas, sea turtles, etc important species. World environment day slogan for 2016 was “Go Wild for Life” to awake people involved in wildlife crime and correct the damages done by it. It is a big challenge in front of us to solve this big issue in order to get better future on earth.
Objectives of celebrating this event every year are like:
- To spread awareness among common public about the environmental issues.
- To encourage people living in society and communities to become active agents sustainable and eco-friendly development.
- To get global support of people to make it a globally successful campaign.
- To motivate people for cleanliness in the nearby surrounding areas for better start of this campaign.
Wildlife crime has endangered many animal species whereas some species have been extinct such as Javan rhino in Vietnam and western black rhinos in Cameroon in 2011. Great apes have also been disappeared from Gambia, Benin, Burkina Faso, Togo and other countries. My dear friends, we live on earth, so earth is our first home. Just forget about your individual home and focus on the joint home which is earth. We should keep it clean, green and crime free so that environment can nourish us and not bother us forever. I am sure that if all the human being understand and follow their responsibilities regarding earth and environment, that day is not so far when all the living beings will be happy under one roof of healthy environment on this planet.
Save Wildlife, Save Environment!
World Environment Day Speech 4
Good morning to the Principal Sir, Sir, Madam, my seniors and my dear colleagues. My name is … I study in class … and I would like to speech on world environment day – a campaign made by the UNGA to solve all the environmental issues for safe environment and better future. My dear friends, we have gathered here to celebrate this great event today on 5th of June. And, I am very thankful to my class teacher for giving me such a great opportunity to speech at this event. World environment day is a big day for us which has been created, to make us realize that what wrong we are doing towards the nature, for our betterment in future.
The celebration of this campaign in 2016 was based on the special slogan “Go wild for life” and theme “fight against the illegal trade in wildlife for life” (means zero tolerance for the illegal trade in wildlife). The special theme was declared this year to focus on the life of wild animals like orangutans, elephants, gorillas, pangolins, whales, rhinos, sea turtles, rosewoods, tigers, helmeted hornbills, including other species. This action is taken to safeguard the species that are under threat for future generations. The increasing rate of crime in wildlife has damaged the ecosystem balance very seriously which needs urgent action to reverse it.
Wildlife trade has negatively affected the wild life and some of the animal species are near to the extinction in many countries. Wildlife traders are loading their purses from many years but they are emptying the nature’s store. This campaign celebration in 2016 has aimed to reduce the demand of illegal wildlife products in any field all over the world. It is our responsibility too that we should actively involve in this campaign to completely remove the wildlife crime worldwide. This global crime forces us to stand together to stop the trafficking of wildlife. We should promote the activities regarding solution of environmental issues through arts, crafts exhibitions, flash mobs, film festivals, social media, etc. We should be conscious what is going wrong in our environment and try our best to stop that in nearby areas. Many members of a family work hard to earn money and run a home. My dear friends, we all are members of a family and live in one home under one roof that is earth and environment. We should take care of both because our life will be healthy and safe only when the earth will be green and environment clean.
One Earth, One Environment and One Life; so live it, don’t waste it!
