Celebration of World Environment Day

The ANVAYA Beach Resort Bali, in collaboration with the Consulate General of India in Bali and Bali Sea Turtle Society, celebrated World Environment Day on Saturday, 13 July  2019 at ANVAYA  Beach.  Every year,  World  Environment  Day  is celebrated  with  the  aim  to  encourage  awareness and action to protect the environment. Air pollution, waste management, sanitation, marine pollution and plastic waste are some of the key sustainability issues for the planet’s future.

World Environment Day was inaugurated in 1972 following the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm, Sweden. Since its first celebration on 5 June 1974, millions of  people  across  the  world  have  taken  part  in  thousands  of events  to  raise  awareness  and  generate  political  momentum  around  growing  concerns, such  as  the  depletion  of  the  ozone  layer,  toxic  chemicals,  desertification  and  global warming.

The ANVAYA Beach Resort Bali and The Government of India have committed to organizing and promoting World Environment  Day  celebrations  through a  series of engaging activities   and events generating strong public interest.  From pan-Indian  plastic clean-up  drives  in  public  areas to beach clean-up  activities, India will lead the  initiative  by preserving Mahatma Gandhi’s vision of social responsibility to our environment, nationally and globally, on his 150th birthday anniversary.

The Consul General of India in Bali, Mr. R. O. Sunil Babu, spoke on the importance of  tackling various environmental issues of today to leave a better world tomorrow. He quoted Gandhiji’s words, “the world is enough for everyone’s need but not enough for everyone’s greed”, emphasizing the need for global responsibility towards our environment.
