It has become critical to discuss climate change, pollution, and its impact on our fragile ecosystem, as well as our basic human rights to live in a healthy environment.

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has established World Environment Day (UNEP). Concerned citizens and organisations from all over the world have been working together for a long time to make the world a better place to live by working to protect the natural environment.

The United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, also known as the Stockholm Conference, was held in Stockholm for the first time in 1972, for the first time in the world. This resulted in the establishment of the World Environment Day as well as the United Nations Environment Programme.

Themes of importance

Beat Plastic Pollution (2018, India), Air Pollution (2019, China), Celebrate Biodiversity (2020, Columbia and Germany), and Ecosystem Restoration were some of the major themes in recent years (2021, Pakistan).

One of the most significant outcomes of all of this was the establishment of a 10-year global mission known as the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2023).

The Stockholm Conference, which took place in 1972, will be 50 years old in 2022. And the host country this year is Sweden, the place where it all began. The most important pledge that every citizen on this planet must make is to live sustainably.

Traveling and the environment

It’s also critical to emphasise that travel and environmental sustainability are inextricably linked. Even more so, given that most countries’ policies are not rigid. From our own Ladakh to Bali, and all over the world, beautiful landscapes are increasingly being harmed by overtourism and, more importantly, harmful practises such as littering and the use of plastic (think millions of straws). The landfills are overflowing, residents are suffering, the climate is changing at an unprecedented rate, and the list goes on.
