WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY – JUNE 5

In this video Nokuphiwa Jada and learners from Sakumlandela (members of the Earthchild Project) speak together about caring for water – caring for the earth.  A conversation that is integral to World Environment Day held on June 5th 2012.

The 2012 theme for World Environment Day was ‘Green Economy: Does it include you?’

The UN Environment Programme defines the ‘Green Economy’ as one that results in improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. In its simplest expression, a green economy can be thought of as one which is low carbonresource efficient and socially inclusive.

Practically speaking, a Green Economy is one whose growth in income and employment is driven by public and private investments that reduce carbon emissions and pollution, enhance energy and resource efficiency, and prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services. These investments need to be catalyzed and supported by targeted public expenditure, policy reforms and regulation changes.
