the global theme for world environment day 2015

the well-being of humanity, the environment, and the functioning of the economy, ultimately depend upon the responsible management of the planet’s natural resources. Evidence is building that people are consuming far more natural resources than what the planet can sustainably provide.

many of the earth’s ecosystems are nearing critical tipping points of depletion or irreversible change, pushed by high population growth and economic development. by 2050, if current consumption and production patterns remain the same and with a rising population expected to reach 9.6 billion, we'll need three planets to sustain our ways of living and consumption.

the world environment day theme this year as set by the united nations environment program is therefore "Seven Billion Dreams, One Planet, Consume with Care."

living within planetary boundaries is the most promising strategy for ensuring a healthy future. human prosperity need not cost the earth. living sustainably is about doing more and better with less. it is about knowing that rising rates of natural resource use and the environmental impacts that occur are not a necessary by-product of economic growth.

see how we're celebrating here in Boonah.
