This day is about recondition of the environmental impacts of everyday life.

World Environment Day is an annual event that is celebrated on June 5th. The event was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972 to mark the opening of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment. The conference was held from June 5th-16th, 1972 and was the first major international conference to focus on the environment and its protection.

Since its establishment, World Environment Day has been used as a platform to raise awareness about the importance of preserving the environment and taking action to protect it. The event is celebrated in countries all over the world, with a variety of activities and events taking place to mark the occasion.

We need to work together to reduce our greenhouse emissions.

In recent years, the focus of World Environment Day has been on issues such as climate change and its impact on the environment. This year, the focus is on how we can work together to protect our planet from the effects of climate change. We all have a role to play in mitigating the effects of climate change, and World Environment Day is a day to remind us of that.

Climate change is a global problem, and it requires a global solution. We need to work together to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, and to adapt to the changes that are already happening. We can do this by using less energy, by using renewable energy sources, and by working to protect our forests and oceans.

Many people simply don’t care about the environment.

World Environment Day is a day to celebrate our planet and raise awareness of the issues facing our environment. This day is an opportunity to call for action to protect our planet and its resources. On World Environment Day, we can all pledge to do our part to safeguard the Earth and its many precious gifts.

In Nigeria, damage to the environment is a daily occurrence. This is due to a variety of factors, including poverty and a general lack of awareness of environmental issues. People in Nigeria often have to choose between following environmental guidelines and simply trying to survive. This often results in them cutting corners, which can lead to further damage to the environment. Additionally, many people simply don’t care about the environment, which also contributes to the problem.

Enforcement of environmental laws has been a challenge.

If left to the will of the people, Nigeria’s environmental depletion will continue and excel in the coming years. Nigeria’s environmental policy enforcement is critical to protecting the country’s natural resources and ensuring a sustainable future. The government has established a number of environmental laws and regulations to protect the environment, but enforcement of these laws has been a challenge. Without full enforcement and commitment by the Federal Government, Nigeria’s environment will quickly decay.

Never heard of this anyway. Nigerians are just wired in a way such that they only do the right thing when there’s an strict enforcement. Buh when they go abroad they comply to the slightest thing. Buh back home, just so nonchalant.
I once saw a video where people got paid for disposing plastic waste for recycling. That would be nice here too; the poverty level is intense already

Implementation of an environmental policy is essential for conserving our country’s natural resources and guaranteeing a sustainable future for us. The government needs to enact several ecological rules and regulations that we should all adhere to safeguard the environment.

Without full enforcement and commitment by the Government, Nigeria’s environment will quickly decay for sure cause people did not take it serious at all and keep polluting the environment which is harmful to the country’s natural resources

I think some states enforce environmental law, and this will be good if all states can adopt it.

The effect on climatic changes is devastating.

I read some time ago that an NGO body for climatic change is working on mass reduction of waste, I hope it becomes visible on time

A day like today should be well know to everyone in the country. Government should punish or fine those that did not following the rule and regulation. It always good to remember our environment

Logical from the UN to establish something like this for the remembrance of our environment. We need to adopt and acknowledge this day in Naija because we pollute our atmosphere daily, which is terrible.

Its not only about establishing the environmental law, most people did not take the law serious and that is because the government are also lenient on it. A day like this should be make known to the public and celebrated in Nigeria too as it is done across other countries

This day is an opportunity to call for action to protect our planet and its resources… Also Government should provide bodies that guides the given laws and fine should be paid by anyone who violates the laws this would really help too

Climate change has been a global things that all countries have been warming up to because of changes happening in our environment.In Nigeria our then governor brought the idea of planting at least street how many people have done that after his tenure instead the ones planted were uprooted and the environment itself is fighting back due to lots of emissions.Nigeria needs to keep orientating our people about the environment because the daily pollution caused by our citizenry is much
