World Environment Day

The Green Office Alma Mater participates in a collective awareness raising action


On the occasion of World Environment Day (5 June), the Green Office Alma Mater joined the #TheMoreTheGreener campaign, organized by the Green Office Groningen to involve all the Green Offices in Europe.

 

The initiative aims to show that it is possible to protect the environment with small daily actions, underlining the importance of a collective public action that brings attention back to environmental issues.

 

To participate you must write an action on a sign that you commit to do to protect the environment and motivation, then you share the photo on social networks with the hashtag #TheMoreTheGreener.

World Environment Day is celebrated on June 5, established by the United Nations General Assembly on December 15, 1972,  to unite the various countries of the Earth in an effort to preserve the natural ecosystem. This year the theme is the loss of biodiversity which, with climate change, is an environmental and social emergency.

About a million living species (out of an estimated total of around 8.7 million) are threatened with extinction. Many ecosystems have been destroyed, degraded, fragmented. With the biodiversity crisis, the supply of ecosystem services is at risk, from food to wood, from water to medicines, from climate regulation to soil erosion control, from recreational to cultural values.
