Jaipur to mark World Environment Day with 'Khejari Ki Beti' play
A number of events are scheduled in Jaipur to mark the World Environment Day (WED) but most important is the play to be staged at Ravindera Manch auditorium in the city. The play titled ‘Khejari Ki Beti’ is about saving the most fragile eco-system of desert area, replantation of khejari trees and water conservation.

Other events that are going to be held on Wed are the cycle rally, human chain, run for environment, tree plantation, talks in education institutions, tree plantation at Kulish Smriti Van, etc. The purpose is how to converse nature, water and environment by getting back to nature.

Various talks are going to emphasize the concept of “ecoculture”. Every culture has its implications on land and its usage in various ways as a contextual issue or according to the ecology of the place. Thus the term “eco-culture” brings these two disciplines, cultural studies and ecology on a single platform as interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary knowledge area.

The host country for the WED-2014 is Barbados and the residents are being encouraged to join the global celebrations by wearing green on Thursday, June 5. School children, the public sector and companies across the country have been urged to wear green T-shirts, green ribbons or green articles of clothing in celebration of the day as Barbados hosts the global event.

Moreover, the UN General Assembly declared 2014 as the International Year of Small Island Developing States (SIDS). Therefore, World Environment Day 2014 will shine the spotlight on SIDS with the theme 'Raise Your Voice Not the Sea Level'.

“Climate change is a major challenge for SIDS, as global warming is causing ocean levels to rise. Due to their small size and isolation, SIDS are more vulnerable to natural and environmental disasters, climate change and sea-level rise. However, these islands have also been successful in overcoming their environmental problems. From Palau to Puerto Rico, the stories of resiliency and innovation abound,” stressed the UNEP.
