World Environment Day is the United Nations’ main vehicle of worldwide encouragement for environmental action and awareness.

About the 2024 Edition

After its first edition in 1972, World Environment Day has become a major global event for environmental awareness. This year, the campaign will focus on land restoration, desertification, and drought resilience under the slogan “Our land. Our future. We are #GenerationRestoration.”

The UN warns that about 40% of the Earth’s land is degraded, impacting half the population and endangering roughly half of the global economy. Droughts have increased by 29% since 2000, and without action, they could affect over 75% of the world’s population by 2050.
