Give Earth a Chance
The theme, Give Earth a Chance, called on every one to contribute to the healing of the ailing planet. In spite of considerable efforts and significant achievements, many of the problems, which plagued the Earth during the 20th Century, still lingered. More than ever, there was a need to take the necessary steps to ensure that the environment remained at the top of the global agenda.
You will note that the logo of the International Year of Mountains (IYM) has been incorporated in our World Environment Day logo in order to highlight this important United Nations Year.
The main international celebrations of the World Environment Day were held in the city of Shenzhen, China.
