Hari Alam Sekitar Sedunia dan Hari Lautan Sedunia
Asalamualaikum semua, hari ini post Tuah adalah tentang Hari Alam Sekitar Sedunia yang di sambut 5 Jun dan Hari Lautan Sedunia yang di sambut hari ini 8 Jun. Mungkin sebahgian pembaca blog, tidak sedar akan kehadiran sambutan yang datangnya tiap 5 dan 8 tiap jun pada setiap Jun. Malah Tuah percaya ada yang tidak tahu langsung mengenai adanya sambutan ini. Di mana silapnya, semua menunding jari (ada ke?) . Mana tidaknya, media massa pun tidak kisah sangat kerana, mereka lebih gemar membuat liputan berita tentang benda lain sebagai contoh mengenai politik negara yang hentah bila akan berakhir dengan skandal seksnyalah, pemimpin guna duit rakyat untuk kepentingan peribadilah, perjuangan Negara islam terkuburlah aish macam-macam ler. Tidak mengapa itu kita cerita lain kali. Ok!
Biar Tuah mulakan dengan HaRi Alam sekitar,
Kalau menurut wikipedia
World Environment Day (WED) is a day that stimulates awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and public action. It is on 5 June. It was the day that United Nations Conference on the Human Environment began. The United Nations Conference on the Human Environment was from 5–16 June 1972. It was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972. The first World Environment Day was on 1973. World Environment Day is hosted every year by a different city with a different theme and is commemorated with an international exposition in the week of 5 June. World Environment Day is in spring in the Northern Hemisphere and fall in the Southern Hemisphere.
Theme 2011Forests-Nature At Your Service-cover one third of the earth’s land mass, performing vital functions and services around the world which make our planet alive with possibilities. In fact, 1.6 billion people depend on forests for their livelihoods. They play a key role in our battle against climate change, releasing oxygen into the atmosphere while storing carbon dioxide. Thousands of activities were organized worldwide, with beach clean-ups, concerts, exhibits, film festivals, community events and much more.This year's global host,India - a country of wide biodiversity.
Kalau menurut UNEP
WED celebration began in 1972 and has grown to become the one of the main vehicles through which the UN stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and encourages political attention and action.
Through WED, the UN Environment Programme is able to personalize environmental issues and enable everyone to realize not only their responsibility, but also their power to become agents for change in support of sustainable and equitable development.
WED is also a day for people from all walks of life to come together to ensure a cleaner, greener and brighter outlook for themselves and future generations.
Everyone counts in this initiative and WED relies on you to make this happen! We call for action – organize a neighborhood clean-up, stop using plastic bags and get your community to do the same, plant a tree or better yet organize a collective tree planting effort, walk to work, start a recycling drive . . . the possibilities are endless. Check out the WED pack for interesting suggestions on what you could do
Whatever you do, tell us about it! We will post your activities on this website and make it part of the Wide World of WED map.
Pada tahun ini, INdia menjadi Tuan Rumah ....serba sedikit kenapa india jadi TUan Rumah:
The Republic of India will be the host for World Environment Day, 5 June 2011, for the first time since the celebrations began in 1972. This year’s commemorations are expected to be the largest and most widely celebrated globally.
India is the second most populous nation in the world with around 1.2 billion people. It has the seventh largest land mass on the planet, 3.28 million square kilometers, providing home to a largely Hindu population.
The country faces serious environmental challenges related to population increase and uncontrolled urbanization, industrialization, and the massive intensification of agriculture. The problems include deforestation, pollution, loss of water resources and wildlife trade. As the economy continues to grow, however, India is seeking solutions to tackle these issues.
Releasing a major report on the assessment of the impact of climate change last year, the Minister for Environment and Forests, Mr. Jairam Ramesh, noted that, “There is no country in the world that is as vulnerable, on so many dimensions, to climate change as India is. This makes it imperative for us to have sound evidence-based assessments on the impact of climate change… We must continue this focus on rigorous climate change science.”
Among some of the rare species found in India are the Golden Langur monkey, which was first discovered in the 1950s, and the Royal Bengal Tiger. The Golden Langur is the most endangered primate in India, named after is beautifully colored coat. It is a secretive leaf-eating monkey that spends most of its time on top of high trees and seldom descends to the ground. They are also found in the foothills of Bhutan's Black Mountains.
India is estimated to have 1,500 of the 8,000 Golden Langurs left in the world. This number however represents a 30% decline in the last 30 years. A major threat to these monkeys is the loss of habitat due to the destruction of forests. Increasingly, the population of this species is restricted to fragmented forest pockets.
Dan jika di lihat dari defnasi dari united nation environment day 2011 Pittisburgh-
World Environment Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972 at the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment. Another resolution, adopted by the General Assembly the same day, led to the creation of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
Commemorated each year on June 5, World Environment Day is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action. With thousands of events in UNEP's six global regions, namely, North America, Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and the Pacific, West Asia and Europe, World Environment Day is considered one of the largest environmental events of its kind.
Since 1972, 37 World Environment Day celebrations have been held around the globe. World Environment Day 2010 in Pittsburgh marked the most recent celebration.
World Environment Day is designed to:
- give a human face to environmental issues;
- empower people to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development;
- promote an understanding that communities are pivotal to changing attitudes towards environmental issues; and
- advocate partnership which will ensure all nations and peoples enjoy a safer and more prosperous future.
But World Environment Day also is a people's event. People around the globe celebrate with colorful activities such as street rallies, city-wide walks, scientific forums, bicycle parades, green concerts, essays and poster competitions in schools, tree plantings, as well as recycling and clean-up campaigns.
Kalo kita lihat banyak definasi yang di keluarkan oleh organisasi yang terlibat. Tetapi bermatlamatkan satu tujuan iaitu menyelamatkan bumi dan memberi kesedaran kepada orang ramai tentang kepentingan alam sekitar.
Kita ni sebagai orang yang di beri akal yang sempurna perlu menjaga alam sekitar.
