Thursday, June 5th, is the United Nations’ World Environment Day (WED) - Celebrate the biggest day for positive environmental action!

World Environment DayWorld Environment Day (WED) is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment.

Over the years it has grown to be a broad, global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated by stakeholders in over 100 countries. It also serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something positive for the environment, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.

Agriculture in the spotlight

WED is the opportunity for everyone to realize not only the responsibility to care for the Earth and to become agents of change. This year, YPARD is focusing on boosting youth involvement in agriculture, especially women and young farmers’ membership. Our main goal is to foster a sustainable agriculture and the youth plays a key role in order to achieve it.  

This is why we ask you to join us in providing your insights and check in with your individual actions using #WED2014. See you tomorrow!
