LINGAP-Canada strives to engage with the public to share knowledge through our various activities.  The Upcoming Activities section below lists all the events you can take part in. 

WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY 2023

In 1972, the UN General Assembly designated 5 June as World Environment Day (WED) to raise awareness on the problems facing our environment such as air pollution, plastic pollution, loss of biodiversity, food security, sustainable consumption, and the current global crisis of climate change. Celebrated by millions of people worldwide through various activities, WED in 2023 focuses on the theme #BeatPlasticPollution!

 

“In 2022, 175 UN Member States endorsed a historic resolution to end plastic pollution and forge an international legally binding agreement that will be ready by the end of 2024. Plastic is predominantly produced from oil and gas, both of which are fossil fuels. The more plastic we make, the more fossil fuel is required, the more we intensify the climate crisis. Also, plastic products create greenhouse gas emissions across their whole lifecycle”

- Geneva Environment Network

For this year’s WED Celebration, LINGAP-Canada organized a poster drawing activity involving elementary and high school students in Alberta, Canada and the Philippines. A total of 41 students (14 from Canada and 27 from the Philippines) participated in this international activity. LINGAP members and friends were invited as resource persons to choose the three most appropriate, substantive, and artistic posters submitted by the students.
