World Environment Day
Today, more than 100 countries around the world are celebrating World Environment Day. World Environment Day was established on 5 June 1972 and ever since has been celebrated each year under a different slogan in order to draw public attention to specific environmental problems.
This year's slogan "Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care." emphasizes the importance of rational consumption of natural resources, as well as the need for pollution reduction through responsible waste management, all with an aim to preserve the environment we live in.
World Environment Day will also be marked in Serbia where a number of activities and events will be organized. One of them is a forum entitled "Management of Unused Medication in Serbia" which is to take place at the Youth Center, while The Eleventh Regional Conference "Environment to Europe" will be held at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry and will be dedicated to EU Environmental Horizontal Legislation – Methods, Standards and Tools which present challenges on the road to EU. The Conference is an official European Sustainable Development Week (ESDW) event.
