World Environment Day Celebrations, 2015

I have been honoured to spearhead the World Environment Day celebrations in Garissa which was marked globally in Garissa County. The World Environment Day (WED) is the biggest, most globally celebrated day for positive environmental action. The celebration of WED began in 1972 and has grown to become one of the main vehicles through which the United Nations encourages positive action for the environment every 5th of June. The theme for this year was, “One Billion Dreams, One Planet, Consume with care”. This year has been an extraordinary one. Garissa has celebrated the biggest World Environment Day celebrations in history held at Young Muslim Academy. The event has brought together different persons and institutions who had big love for environment. It was indeed celebrated in style. Just to name a few activities such as tree planting, entertainment by school children, speeches from high profiled persons an awards session and finally media briefing. We will be holding our first Mazingira Tournament this week. This has been a platform in which all best environmental practices were recognized in addressing different environmental problems affecting us. On behalf of World Environment Day 2015 Garissa celebrations, I say thank you very much to all those who participated in marking this year’s celebrations, through you, we have successfully celebrated this year’s WED celebrations. Let’s all stand for a sustainable environment.
