We are facing an environmental emergency. With the advancement in technology, we have been exploiting our environment for decades to the point of almost return. The pollution is escalating to a threatening level. There is also a significant impact on biodiversity and climate. Through this day environmental issues like global warming, human overpopulation and marine pollution are highlighted. Sustainable consumption should be our primary focus if we want to preserve our resources.

To celebrate World Environment Day an Earth Anthem penned by poet Abhay K is sung:

Our cosmic oasis, cosmic blue pearl

the most beautiful planet in the universe

all the continents and all the oceans

united we stand as flora and fauna

united we stand as species of one earth

different cultures, beliefs and ways

we are humans, the earth is our home

all the people and the nations of the world

all for one and one for all

united we unfurl the blue marble flag.
