Celebrate United Nations World Environment Day

  • Comments 1

Saturday June 5 is the annual World Environment Day which was created by the United Nations (UN) to stimulate worldwide awareness of the environment. Microsoft has been a proud partner of the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) to help find ways to use technology to address environmental challenges.

This World Environment Day, UNEP has a number of activities planned and many ways for you to get involved. There are several celebrations around the world including a global celebration in Kilgali, Rwanda happening June 3-5 and regional celebrations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Geneva, Switzerland, Baku, Azerbaijan, Genova, Italy, Port-au-Prince, Haiti and several other cities. One fun contest is part of Rwanda’s annual cultural festival called Kwita Izina, where a ceremony is held to give names to all the baby gorillas born in the past year. You can cast your vote online for the name finalists, and actor Don Cheadle will announce the winning name on 5 June during the Kwita Izina ceremony.

    Yesterday that we are on, we had inherited,

    Tell me what time, wake up we'll

    What are the children, keep going,

    To future generations, I did not leave,

    To fall to burn, why not tired,

    What to say when we'll wake up,

    What the children, keep going,

    Dry land, we did not look back,

    We burned the forest, did not wearing the head,

    The atmosphere is darker, we did not care,

    Tell me what time we'll wake up,

    What are the children, keep going,

    Five in June the world, is on the environment,

    Sensitive people, wake up is that,

    Tocsin of the play is the day,

    Tell me what time we'll wake up,

    What are the children, keep going.

    To protect nature

    Trees are flowering, the leaves will be found

    The fate of the leaf, is to one day land

    This cycle continues, a thousand revenue expenditure

    Never is not possible to stand back from life

    Takes the lead as the green and yellow wind

    Note that it certainly helps bees

    Within the program, nature in harmony

    Lest the desert, the warning is made

    Nature of the damage is repaired within

    Do not cut trees at the palace

    Does not give any entity, such as the loss of human

    With concrete filling on each land

    Protect our environment

    Hearts are not clean, does not keep a clean environment,

    Unfortunately the trust, do not look properly,

    Tomorrows children, clean the leaves,

    People as human beings, and we protect our environment,

    Our environment of all living things, forget them not,

    Surrounding air, soil environment, environment to live decently,

    Around the animal, plant environment, environmentalism, human, to

    Humanity is left, if you have any respect,

    People as human beings, and we protect our environment,

    Our environment of all living things, forget them not,
