World Environment Day 2024: Date, Theme, Significance, And More | Culture News

Our home, and the only one we know of, is the earth. This planet raises us and shapes who we are from the day of our birth till the day of our death. Nature is caring, welcoming, and nourishing. It gives us all the resources to survive and be healthy. Nature is the ideal source of everything we need for both bodily and mental well-being. But nature has been brutalized by humankind. In addition to destroying forests and depleting natural resources, humans are also to blame for pollution and global warming. It is past time for us to start protecting nature. World Environment Day aims to increase public awareness of deforestation, biodiversity loss, global warming, and climate change issues each year.
