World Environmental Day 2014 – WED 2014: Raise Your Voice, Not the Sea Level

Geschreven op 16-4-2014 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Agenda, Milieu Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

WED 2014World Environment Day (WED) is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment.

Over the years it has grown to be a broad, global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated by stakeholders in over 100 countries.

It also serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something positive for the environment, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.

In support of the UN designation of 2014 as the International Year of Small Island Developing States (SIDS), WED this year will adopt SIDS in the broader context of climate change as its theme. Our objectives are to help build momentum towards the Third International Conference on SIDS in September and encourage a greater understanding of the importance of SIDS and of the urgency to help protect the islands in the face of growing risks and vulnerabilities, particularly as a result of climate change. We believe WED will be an excellent opportunity to raise a call for solidarity with the islands.

June 5th is World Environment Day and Pocoyo can’t do anything but get involved! With the help of Elly, Pato and the rest of his friends he will learn how to make the most of our planets natural resources. Are you ready to help?

Pocoyo is a curious, fun-loving, friendly toddler who’s always into experiencing new and exciting adventures. Featuring core values of tolerance, respect, love and loyalty, kids around the world love to join Pocoyo’s adventures with his inseparable animal friends Elly (the elephant), Pato (the duck), Loula (his pet dog) and Sleepy Bird.

    World Environment Day 2014

    As people around the globe today commemorate World Environment Day, which focuses this year on the plight of Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and their particular vulnerability to the effects of climate change, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is renewing its call for a fresh approach to environmental protection, one which recognizes the intricate and deep connection between protecting the environment and human development.

    In its latest report released in April, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) estimated the cost of “ambitious” climate change mitigation would reduce economic growth by 0.06 percent annually. However, the underlying estimates do not take into account the economic benefits of reduced climate change.

    Against this backdrop, UNDP is working to move away from a climate change discourse focused on trade-offs between economic growth, poverty and environment, to one that looks at how to advance these three strands of sustainable development together.
