Today is World Environment Day. The day is being observed in the country as elsewhere across the globe to create awareness among people for safeguarding the natural resources.
Like each World Environment Day has a theme to focus our attention because of environmental concern, the theme of this year is beating plastic pollution.
Each year, one country hosts this great event where the official celebration takes place. This year, it will be India.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh will also observe the day in a festive manner with different programs like rally, procession, painting exhibition, and open discussion etc.
President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina are also expected to call upon the nation to protect the environment.
This great initiative was taken in 1974 first and since then it has founded a global platform to outreach the public.
