Campaign 'SelfiewithSapling' launched on the eve of Environment day

MIB
Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar today launched a people’s campaign #SelfiewithSapling urging all to join and plant a sapling and post the selfie with the sapling on social media. Talking to media in New Delhi on the eve of World Environment Day, Mr. Javadekar stressed that people's participation is integral towards tackling the environmental issues and environment protection has to be a people’s movement.

This year the theme of Environment Day is Air Pollution. Mr Javadekar informed that he along with renowned cricketer Kapil Dev and Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff will plant sapling in the premises of Paryavaran Bhawan tomorrow. 


Air Pollution is the theme of this World Environment Day. Air pollution is the biggest environmental health risk of the current time. Airborne pollutants are responsible for about one-third of deaths from stroke, chronic respiratory disease, and lung cancer, as well as one-quarter of deaths from heart attack. Air pollution is also fundamentally altering the climate, with profound impacts on the health of the planet.
