 United Nations General Assembly in 1972 established the World Environment Day. On the same day United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) was created too.Today World Environment Day is celebrated world over in many ways. World Environment Day (WED) is not just another day but a special day about you and me. 
Green concerts, essay and poster competitions, rallies, tree planting, recycling efforts, clean-up campaigns etc. are some of the ways people, organizations and the governments express their concern towards the environment. WED is also used to enhance political attention and action. Pledges are made and actions are taken, which lead to the establishment of permanent governmental structures dealing with environmental management and economic planning
