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.
