World Environment Day 2024 #Generation Restoration

The World Environment Day 2024 #GenerationRestoration focuses on restoring land, halting desertification, and building drought resilience.

Led by the UN Environment Programme, the World Environment Day on 5 June 2024 brings together millions of people in government, business, civil society, schools and celebrities engaging online and in-person to raise awareness and influence environmental action.

Up to 40 per cent of the world’s land is already degraded while an estimated 3.2 billion people worldwide are negatively impacted by desertification, and more than three-quarters of the world’s population is expected to be affected by droughts by 2050.

“We cannot turn back time, but we can grow forests, revive water sources, and bring back soils. We are the generation that can make peace with land. We must restore ecosystems to tackle climate change, save species from extinction and secure our future.”
