Today is World Environment Day and we are all encouraged to come together, reconnect with nature and celebrate the places that matter most to us.
 
This event was initiated by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972 on the day the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, aims to encourage worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment .
 
The first World Environment Day was celebrated in 1973 at Stockholm. Since then it is hosted every year by a different city with a unique theme. This year, it is being hosted by Canada and the theme for the year is Connecting People to Nature  –  in the city and on the land, from the poles to the equator'. 
 
It reminds us of our responsibility towards sustainable use of resources for preserving and conserving nature and environment. It is celebrated every year to raise global awareness for taking positive environmental action.
 
At this time, ASEMWater is calling for all partners and ASEM members to do this by staying up to date with the latest environment news and supporting groundbreaking research occurring worldwide. Together, we can work to better preserve and understand our world.
