Only One Earth.

The theme of World Environment Day 2022 is Only One Earth – In harmony with nature. It focuses on the importance of living sustainably in harmony with nature, as well as our opportunities to transition to a cleaner, greener lifestyle.

In symbiosis with nature for a greener tomorrow

Only One Earth is the same theme that was used when the first World Environment Day was held in Stockholm in 1972. Today, 50 years later, this message holds just as true. This planet remains our one and only home, and we must do everything in our power to protect the Earth’s finite resources.

The theme is meant to encourage people to commit and work actively towards achieving tangible results and new solutions. It ranges from sustainable consumption and production (goal 12 in the Agenda 2030) to how we as individuals develop our relationship with nature, learn to understand its value as well as adapting our decision-making based on this value.
