Preparations for the World Environment Day led by the National Organizing Steering Committee are ongoing. 

The event will be marked on 5th June 2017 at Egerton University, Njoro Campus in Nakuru County. This year’s theme is ‘Connecting People to Nature’ and the slogan is ‘I am with Nature.’ The theme invites people to think about how they are part of nature and how intimately we depend on it. This challenges us to find exciting ways to foster this vital relationship.

World Environment Day is an annual event celebrated every 5th of June. It is the United Nation's principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. The day was first observed in 1974 and is viewed as a flagship campaign for raising awareness on emerging environmental issues from marine pollution and global warming, to sustainable consumption and wildlife crime.
