World Environment Day message by the Minister of Environment and Tourism Hon. Pohamba Shifeta.

World Environment Day was designated by the UN General Assembly in 1972 and occurs on 5 June every year, and is used as a vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. The World Environment Day has grown to become a global platform for public outreach, with the participation of over 143 countries annually. Each year, it has a new theme that major corporations, NGOs, communities, governments and celebrities worldwide adopt to advocate environmental causes.

This year it is being celebrated under the theme “Connecting People to Nature – in the city and on the land, from the poles to the equator”, which implores us to get outdoors and into nature, to appreciate its beauty and its importance, and to take forward the call to protect the Earth that we share. This year’s theme invites everyone to think about how we are part of nature and how intimately we depend on it.

This theme is particularly apt in the current context of Namibia, where we regard our environment and natural resources as a national treasure and a key part of our cultural heritage. Many countries have damaged their environments and stocks of natural resources beyond repair in their pursuit of development. In Namibia, we can be thankful that our environment and natural resources are still in a relatively healthy state and are the envy of many countries around the world.
