Event: Environment and Climate Emergency: Action on the frontline

05 June 2021 | 11.15-12.30


Published May 5, 2021

We have 10 years to restore the planet. Every action matters, every day. The theme of this year’s World Environment Day is Ecosystem Restoration.

Join Ade Adepitan and a panel of young environmental activists and experts to find out what they and you can do to build a fairer, greener future on World Environment Day.

World Environment Day 2021 will see the launch of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.

Ecosystem restoration can take many forms: Growing trees, greening cities, rewilding gardens, changing diets or cleaning up rivers and coasts. This is the generation that can make peace with nature. Pakistan will act as global host of the day.
