June 5th is world Environment Day- so named by the UN as a day to protect the environment. This WED Is also the Year of Small Island Developing States (SIDS) which is pretty neat! As I studied International Development- I think it is great that the focus on small island states. Many face special economic, political and environmental issues. It is so important to acknowledge that.
There are many ways to foster a love of the environment in your child!
- Spend time outside
- If your child is old enough, pick up trash and recycling
- plant a tree or a garden
- learn about recycling
- Take a trip to a farmer's market
You could even start your own action and participate in WED or join one!
