World Environment Day today

The World Environment Day is being celebrated in Bangladesh and elsewhere in the globe this year with the theme ‘Ecosystem Restoration’ and slogan ‘Join # Generation Restoration’ announced by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

On the occasion, the government expects that the people of the country, especially the young generation, would play a leading role in conserving the ecosystem and biodiversity.

The ministry has undertaken various programmes through the Department of Environment (DoE) and the Forest Department to create awareness among the mass people in this regard.

The DoE has taken steps to publish supplements in national dailies on this day.

Banners and festoons have been installed in the city’s important places, installations and roads for encouraging people to plant saplings aiming to protect the environment.
