World Environment Day

World Environmental Day-- Forests: Nature At Your Service


Dear WED Partners, In 2010, we launched the WED Legacy Project. The goal? To get as many individuals and organizations as possible to identify an activity or pledge an action and register on the site to build a global WED community and make a significant contribution in the host country. The result? We pledged $10 for every registration, and the community came through, contributing over $100,000 to gorilla protection in Rwanda. Watch our site for the WED Legacy Gorilla Diary which introduces the gorillas of Rwanda to the WED community. The 2011 WED Legacy drive continues and this time features an exciting, high-profile, challenge between UNEP Goodwill Ambassadors Don Cheadle and Gisele Bündchen. Full of goodwill, Gisele pledges to plant one tree for every activity registered in her name. Full of confidence, Don Cheadle ups the ante with a pledge for two. On June 5th, with help from the global WED community, the winner will plant a new forest and leave the perfect WED Legacy for the UN International Year of Forests. 

To participate, watch the videos on the WED website and then via the WED Challenge page, register your activities and vote for Team Don or Team Gisele! Watch for the launch of the “behind-the-scenes” challenge viral video on Tonic, starting May 24th. Join us in celebrating World Environment Day by mobilizing participation in your area! Download and embed our videos on your website, Facebook or Twitter pages!

An Update from Anne Mearns

Anne Mearns Update (1998 Laureate)


Projects that I am involved with e with are; Wetland Conservation and the protection of frogs and species. Establishment of Conservancies for the
protection of Ecosystems. Tree planting projects and Environmental education programmes.

I was involved with an awareness project on frogs for two years, it was a great success. People showed a great interest in frogs and the protection of
frogs went from strength to strength..

WE still think the greatest task we have is to make people, youth aware of the environment (Awareness programmes). To take action and see where a
person can make a difference.

Hope to hear from you
Kindest Regards

Update from Mike Anane (1998 Laureate)


Hello Marilyn

Its been a while, I am fine and and working really hard to stop the illegal shipments and dumping of toxic electronic waste from the industrialised countries to Ghana. The environmental and public health impacts of e-waste dumping in Ghana are really serious and there is the need to create awareness of the situation and the urgent need for international cooperation and measures to stop the practice.
