This video is a message from Achim Steiner, UNEP Executive Director. He is encouraging everyone to celebrate the World Environment Day this year. Since 1972 the United Nations in all its member states have agreed to celebrate World Environment Day on June 5th.This initiative act is not only to express support for environment and environmental sustainability but also to act not only on one day but rather 365 days a year we should pay heed to environmental sustainability needs.
