World Environment Day – June 05, 2021

June 5 is celebrated every year as the World Environment Day, engaging governments, businesses and citizens in an effort to address pressing environmental issues. This World Environment Day will kick off the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, a global mission to revive billions of hectares, from forests to farmlands, from the top of mountains to the depth of the sea.

We are losing and destroying the foundations of our survival at an alarming rate. Every three seconds, the world loses enough forest to cover a football pitch and over the last century we have destroyed half of our wetlands.

Every individual has a fundamental duty towards the protecting the environment. Be a part of the #GenerationRestoration

On the occasion of World Environment Day and End Plastic Soup Action Day, members of Rotaract Scheveningen also contributed. We took part in a beach clean-up campaign to clear the shores of Scheveningen beach. It was a nice day for us to clean the beach, enjoy a coffee and meet in person while maintaining the necessary social distance.
