Each World Environment Day is organised around a theme that focuses attention on a particularly pressing environmental concern. The theme for 2020, 'Celebrating Biodiversity', is a call to action to combat the global mass extinction crisis. The topic invites us all to consider and show our commitment to protecting nature and to the sustainable use of resources. After all, biodiversity is the foundation that supports all life on Earth – including us. So it's critical we work together towards restoring nature, reversing the loss of biodiversity and sustaining a healthy planet.
