Below we provide a list of environmental dates at-a-glance. While observation of an issue on a given date may not immediately address a problem, it can help raise the profile of environmental concerns and increase awareness. It is important to consider the environmental impact of social, political and economic issues every day - not just once a year - and take appropriate actions.
- World AIDS Day: prevention is better than cure.
- International Day of Persons with Disabilities: support universal access.
- Human Rights Day: human rights bring human responsibilities.
- International Mountain Day: valuing the role of mountains in supporting living systems.
- Day of Reconciliation: promote collaboration and care in creating sustainable solutions.
