What is the World Environment Day theme in 2021?
The World Environment Day slogan in 2021 is “Reimagine. Recreate.Restore.” and the overall theme is “Ecosystem Restoration”.
By restoring ecosystems all over the globe, habitats for nature will begin to return and issues such as climate change could begin to improve.
The UN writes on its website that between 2021 and 2030, it’s proposing “a global mission to revive billions of hectares, from forests to farmlands, from the top of mountains to the depth of the sea“.
