New Delhi, 25 April 2017

The Director of the National Institute of Cleanliness Education and Research (NICER) headquartered at New Delhi while discussing the observance of the World Environment Day (5 June 2017) said that the World Clean Environment Summit 2017 will be held on 5 and 6 June 2017 at India International Centre, 40 Lodi Estate, New Delhi with the theme "Clean Environment for a Cleaner World".


He invited all the Ministers from all countries of the world to participate in this Summit in the presence of the policymakers, bureaucrats, educationists, businessmen, journalists and activists to decide a master plan for cleaning up the world at the earliest by educating one and all regarding the need to protect our mother earth.


Recalling the importance of the World Environment Day, Dr. Utkarsh Sharma said that the World Environment Day (WED) occurs on 5 June every year, is the United Nation's principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. First held in 1974, based on the deliberations on 5 June 1972 on the occasion of the United Nations Conference at Stockholm, it has been a flagship campaign for raising awareness on emerging environmental issues from marine pollution and global warming, to sustainable consumption and wildlife crime. WED has grown to become a global platform for public outreach, with participation from over 143 countries annually. Each year, WED has a new theme that major corporations, NGOs, communities, governments and celebrities worldwide adopt to advocate environmental causes.

World Environment Day was designated by the UN General Assembly in 1972 on the first day of United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, resulting from discussions on the integration of human interactions and the environment. Two years later, in 1974 the first WED was held with the theme "Only One Earth". Even though WED celebrations have been held annually since 1974, in 1987 the idea for rotating the center of these activities through selecting different host countries began.


Dr. Utkarsh Sharma invited individuals and organizations to add activities related to the environment.
