World Environment Day celebrations
World Environment Day is the United Nations' flagship day for promoting awareness and action for the environment. Celebrated every year on 5 June, it provides the largest global platform for public engagement and outreach to champion environmental causes.
OneAKU for OneEarth
This year's World Environment Day theme is #OnlyOneEarth which calls for global, collective, and transformative action to celebrate, protect and restore our planetary home.
2022 is special as this year marks the 50th anniversary of the 1972 Stockholm Conference - the UN's first world conference on the environment. “Only One Earth" was the slogan for the 1972 Stockholm Conference, which still holds true today.
Earth is the only planet with water and life amidst billions of stars in the universe. This is our only home, and we should strive to care for our planet's resources and inhabitants.
To join in the global celebrations for WED 2022, AKU has initiated the “OneAKU for OneEarth” campaign. It symbolizes how our OneAKU community together stands for caring for our planet. The campaign is open for participation by all AKU global staff, students, and faculty.
Every little action, conversation, and share counts. We need everyone everywhere to get involved at all levels!
