World Environment Day's theme this year is 'Raise your voice not the sea level'
This year, the World Environment Day (WED) is going to be observed on June 5 with the theme "Raise your voice not the sea level" as announced by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) that coordinates the observance across the world.

The theme is meant to raise the concern for the pollution created by us at our own level by degrading the nature, harming landscape, inappropriate life style, excessive use of vehicles, continued use of plastic bags, etc. We need to self-reflect and reduce the assault on the environment at our personal levels to mitigate the climate change.

Some recent studies have shown that each of us creates about a kilogram of waste per day which is not disposed of properly and releases methane gas that contributes to global warming. We need to change our life styles to cut down methane we pump into the environment at our own personal levels..

According to UNEP, studies on climate change have shown that in the last 100 years, the sea level has increased in the range of 10 to 25 centimeters at various places in the world. Studies also warn us that if we do not change our life style and consumerist way of living, sea will rise another 50 centimeters by the year 2100 putting life into danger in many coastal cities.

Therefore, there is a need to adopt an environmentally friendly lifestyle and switch over to eco-culture and green technologies at our own personal levels.
