World Environment Day

Sunday 5 June

Tomorrow is World Environment Day and many of us will be enjoying watching the rain fill our water tanks, soak in our paddocks and refresh our gardens. When push comes to shove there really is nothing more important than a fresh supply of drinkable water, not just for us but the environment as well.

World Environment Day (WED) is the United Nations’ most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Since it began in 1974, it has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.

Above all, WED serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something to take care of the Earth or become an agent of change. That ‘something’ can be focused locally, nationally or globally; it can be a solo action or involve a crowd – everyone is free to choose.

For Stroud, I’m sure many of us are hoping the eastern low doesn’t do the damage experienced in 2015, hopefully we can all kick back and enjoy listening to the rain fall.
