“Your Planet Needs YOU! UNite to Combat Climate Change”

“Your Planet Needs YOU! UNite to Combat Climate Change” is the theme for World Environment Day Celebration for 2009.

The whole month of June is dedicated to celebrate Environment Month which is participated worldwide. However, it has a special celebration - The Wold Environment Day. This celebrated every 5th of June . The purpose of this special day are:
  • to give a human face to environmental issues;
  • empower people to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development;
  • promote an understanding that communities are pivotal to changing attitudes towards environmental issues;
  • and advocate partnership which will ensure all nations and peoples enjoy a safer and more prosperous future.

World Environment Day is also a popular event with colourful activities such as street rallies, bicycle parades, green concerts, and essay and poster competitions in schools, tree planting, as well as recycling and cleaning-up campaigns.

Like the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Office in the Philippines, during this month we will always starts the celebration with a parade and culminate with an Inter Provincial Sports fest. Ballgames like basketball, volleyball, tennis, table tennis, bowling, badminton, and dart are being played. DENR employees from different provinces have the chance to banned together.

Likewise, DENR also will spearhead the hanging of streamers with its theme and requesting everybody to participate in keeping our environment clean and green.

Amongst the activities we usually undertake are:
  • clean-up campaigns (involve private sectors, government offices, NGOs, and other sectors)
  • tree planting (on roadsides, mini-parks and coast lines)
  • conducts quiz bowl and poster making contests
  • information dissemination through media and flyers
Though this posting is late, i would still love to dessiminate these information since some do not know yet.
