World Environment Day Theme 2012
Every year we have different themes on this day. “Green Economy: Does it include you?” was the theme of World Environment Day 2012. The theme highlights that the Green Economy as an essential rethink to the way we do business, if we are to create a brighter future.
But what does all this mean for you? If the Green Economy is about social equity and inclusiveness then technically it is all about you! The question therefore asks you to find out more about the Green Economy and assess whether, in your country, you are being included in it.
