World Environment Day

Contadini che piantano alberi

June 5 is World Environment Day, the annual celebration created by the United Nations in order to highlight the vital importance of environmental protection and the themes dealing with such issues - from pollution to deforestation. Although officially established in 1972 during the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment, the first WED was actually held in 1974; this year's theme, "Beat Plastic Pollution", thereby marks the 45th edition of WED.

"Planting trees", illumination from an anonymous translation into French of the "Rustican" by Petrus de Crescentiis, ms. 0340 (0603), f. 018v, after 1459, Musée Condé, Chantilly.
