"Medi ambient i societat: pautes per a la gestió ambiental"

The United Nations, aware that the protection and improvement of the human environment is a major issue, which affects the well-being of peoples and economic development throughout the world, designated 5 June as World Environment Day. The celebration of this day provides us with an opportunity to broaden the basis for an enlightened opinion and responsible conduct by individuals, enterprises and communities in preserving and enhancing the environment. Since it began in 1974, it has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in more than 100 countries.

On the occasion of this date and, on the other hand, the commemoration of the periodic table of chemical elements system by Dmitri I. Mendeleyev 150 years ago, IDAEA, together with Dones D’Avui.CAT, the Societat Catalana de Química and Aigües de Barcelona celebrates the 9th edition of the Workshop Environment and Society: guidelines for environmental management (Jornada Medi ambient i societat: pautes per a la gestió ambiental).

With the aim of promoting equal opportunities between men and women and above all, with the purpose of visualizing the research led and developed by women, all the talks of this workshop will be carried out by women.

About the World Environment Day

A platform for action 

World Environment Day is the United Nations day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment. Since it began in 1974, the event has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.

The people's day 

Above all, World Environment Day is the "people's day" for doing something to take care of the Earth. That "something" can be local, national or global. It can be a solo action or involve a crowd. Everyone is free to choose.

The theme 

Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme that draws attention to a particularly pressing environmental concern. The theme for 2019 is “Air pollution”.

The host 

Every World Environment Day has a different host country, where the official celebrations take place. The focus on the host country helps highlight the environmental challenges it faces and supports worldwide efforts to address them. This year's host is China.
