|for World Environment Day (WED) 2006 - Monday 5 June. The theme for this year is Deserts and Desertification and the slogan is 'Don't Desert Drylands!' The main celebrations will take place in Algiers, Algeria. This is the first time this United Nations day will be held in North Africa.
You can participate in commemorating this important day by organizing activities in your community or country. These should be simple but powerful environmental activities, if possible relating to the 2006 WED theme, and should engage young people in raising environmental awareness.
Previous WED activities have included painting competitions; a photo competition exhibition; tree planting; clean-ups; recycling efforts; symposiums and workshops. Sports activities could also be organized. For more ideas on how WED can be celebrated, please visit UNEP's website at www.unep.org/wed/.
|Remember that whatever event or activity you select should be easy to implement, and educative and attractive to people in your community, particularly young people.
As usual, we would like to encourage you and your organizations to liaise with the UNEP office in your region to find out how you can cooperate on WED activities.
Finally, let us know what you plan to do by completing the 'Register Your Activity' form on the WED website. This information will be included in the Around the World section of the website in the 2006 global activity report.
