World Environment Day was established by the United Nations in 1972 to stimulate worldwide awareness of the environment and encourage political attention and action. It is celebrated annually on 5 June. The United Nations has declared 2012 the International Year of Sustainable Energy for All and the theme for World Environment Day this year is Green Economy: Does it include you?

World Environment Day 2012 is an opportunity to reflect on the importance of a 'green' economy in improving human wellbeing and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities.

We at John XXIII College are celebrating World Environment Day on Tuesday June 5th, it promises to be a fun, action packed day, further details of WED to follow…
