5th June: World Environment Day

A damaged environment is an incurable disease


A clean environment is an environment that is free from air pollution, water pollution and a cool, fresh atmosphere. The benefits of protecting the environment are very good for human health and can act as a balance between living things.


Managing the environment is a shared responsibility that must be carried out by every individual. Even though it is a small action, this change will have a positive impact on the wider environment. Some small changes in daily life can help us reduce our negative impact on the environment.


Humans are very dependent on the environment. The living environment is a unity that includes various living creatures and their surrounding components. These components are physical, chemical, socio-cultural components:


1.  Biological (Biotic) Elements are elements of the living environment in which there are living things.


2. Social Cultural Elements are the social and cultural environment created by humans in behaving as social creatures, whose values and norms are recognized in society.


3. Physical elements (Abiotic) are elements of the living environment which consist of inanimate objects such as soil, air, etc. This element has a role in the survival of living creatures on this earth.


One of the environmental damages caused by nature, namely global climate change, has its own impact on people's health status. Extreme weather, storms, floods, disruption of the food security system, increasing zoonotic diseases, clean water and healthy air crises, and mental health problems are examples of some of the impacts of health threats due to global climate change conditions. This health risk poses a threat to vulnerable groups, especially children, women, the poor, the elderly and people with disabilities or special needs.


One concrete step to reduce the impact of the risk of global climate change on public health is to maintain environmental sustainability and cleanliness. First, restructuring living conditions in the form of eco-villages, eco-municipalities, and sustainable cities. Second, reviewing strengthening the economic sector through a permaculture or agricultural system with a sustainable and sustainable living system as well as green building or sustainable architecture. Third, developing new technology such as strengthening the concept of green technology or renewable energy. Fourth, adapting individual lifestyles that support the preservation of natural resources.


Impact of Environmental Damage


To protect the environment, there are many things that humans can do to make the earth healthier, including the following:


1. Save water and electricity usage

2. Do the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle)

3. Carry out reforestation

4. Use public transportation, walking or cycling to reduce pollution which is harmful to health and nature

5.Use energy-saving electronic equipment

6. Limit paper use

7. Reduce the use of aerosol gases

8. Consume goods and various other things according to needs and desires.


World Environment Day

World Environment Day is celebrated every 5th June.


The history of the commemoration of World Environment Day is taken from the opening of the Human Environment Conference held by the United Nations (UN) on 5-16 June 1972 in Stockholm, Sweden.


The first celebration of World Environment Day took place with the theme "Only One Earth" which took place in 1974.


In subsequent years, World Environment Day has evolved as a platform to raise awareness of the problems facing our environment such as air pollution, plastic pollution, illegal wildlife trade, consumption sustainability, sea level rise, and food security, among others.


The commemoration of World Environment Day is carried out to call for awareness among the global community to take positive action to protect nature and Earth. However, until now the environmental crisis is still a big challenge for the world.
