"Kick the Habit! Towards a Low-Carbon Economy" Is the KK! Topic on DZRH -AM Radio

on June 4, 2008, Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. (Manila Time)

 

On June 5, 2008, more than 100 countries will celebrate the World Environment Day (WED), which aims to raise public awareness of the environment and promote positive actions on environment issues. New Zealand hosts the event this year.


The United Nations General Assembly established the WED in 1972 to mark the opening of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment. On the same day, it adopted a resolution that led to the creation of the UN Environment Programme.

 

For 2008, the international slogan for the WED is on climate change, "Kick the Habit! Towards a Low-Carbon Economy." Through it, UNEP aims to encourage all to take actions to reduce the emissions of carbon and other greenhouse gases. Actions include using less electricity and water, reducing waste, developing alternative energy sources, conserving the forest and planting more trees, and adopting eco-friendly consumption and lifestyle.

 

By taking some, if not all, of these actions, you can help bring about positive changes for a sustainable lifestyle and a safer and prosperous future.

 

The UNEP aims to encourage all to take actions to reduce the emissions of carbon and other greenhouse gases.
