World Environment DayWorld Environment Day is here to remind us that the future of our planet rests in our hands!

What is World Environment Day?

The very first World Environment Day took place in 1973, inspired by the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment that took place the year before starting on June 5th. Each year the United Nations pick a theme and a host city where environmental topics can be discussed , followed by different kinds of exhibits and displays to promote environmental awareness, in many ways very similar to Earth Day. This year (2015)  World Earth Day discussions will be hosted by Italy, and the theme is Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consumer with Care, environmentalists, academics and scientists will come together to bring new ideas to the table concerning the environment.

How Do You Celebrate?

Even though the United Nations pick a specific host city every year, people around the world still celebrate World Environment Day int heir hometowns with parades, concerts, clean up and recycyling initiatives, tree planting groups and all kinds of green action initiatives that are ment to promote and inspire people in every community to work towards maintaing our beautiful planet and battling pollution.

What Can I Do?

World Environment Day is not a public holiday, so you won't be getting the day off school, but if you want to celebrate why not bring it to the attention of your parents, teachers and classmates? World Environment Day is all about working together to take action for the planet, so try to get everyone you know interested in helping make a difference. Something as small as making sure people have a way to recycle in your school can make a difference. You could also try beautifying your neighborhood by planting gardens, learn about organic and local foods, or raise money for a local wildlife and conservation charity or simply learning about the effects of different products on the earth.

You don't see the boys on this website getting all riled up by the male bashing that's been going on in recent years. It's because everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Even if I was trying to be offensive and offend people (which I wasn't) I'm allowed to do that because in America we have this thing called freedom of speech. Freedom of speech because your SUPPOSED TO SAY THINGS THAT ARE NICE  Well, actually, no. Although I dislike people saying rude things to one another, freedom of speech allows it. The only things freedom of speech does not allow are harmful things such as death threats, which Shawn's post wasn't even remotely close to. I also wouldn't personally consider his post "rude" either, but hey, that's just me.

And not even a very offensive joke at that. Of course I knew you were joking. I can read, can't I? What I find hilarious, though, is that people think I wasn't. I thought I made it pretty clear that I wasn't being serious. Am I seriously that good a troll? Your joke was nowhere near offensive. That stereotype is one I find very funny. The only people I know who believe women belong in the kitchen are members of the old-fashioned, Southern-half of my family. But even they don't expect it, they just think it. It's dying out; no one really cares if a woman stays at home and cooks or not. The fact that the radical feminists think that all men still feel this way is very amusing.
