World Environment Day
The United Nations Environment Programme Regional Office of North America has selected the City of Portland to host this year’s World Environment Day (WED) on June 5, 2013. The worldwide theme this year is Reduce Your Foodprint. However, all environmental and sustainability groups can be part of the celebration by scheduling events in the six weeks between Earth Day on April 22nd and World Environment Day on June 5th.
For 2013, World Environment Day (WED) on June 5 has a theme of "Think.Eat.Save -- Reduce Your Foodprint." WED 2013 will highlight the magnitude of global food waste and its humanitarian, economic and environmental implications to policy makers, other stakeholders and consumers worldwide. The aim is to encourage people to reduce their foodprint by becoming more aware of the environmental impact of food waste and loss across the food supply chain.
