Celebrating World Environment Day

On 5 June 2013, the Lao Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment (MoNRE) invited representatives of other government agencies to celebrate World Environment Day. This year’s motto was Think.Eat.Save, a campaign against food waste and food loss that calls for sustainable food production.

 

During a one-day workshop, participants learned about linkages between environmental and agricultural resource protection and food and nutrition security. ProCEEd supported the workshop with an exhibition of photos from the Environmental Photo Competition 2013 which the project completed in March this year. Workshop participants were interested in the art work and the topics portrayed in the pictures. Even HE, Mr. Noulinh Sinbadhit, the Minister of Natrual Resources and the Environment, paid a visit. The motifs ranged from beautiful landscapes to destroyed forests and ecosystems in need of protection.

 

MoNRE organized additional events and activities for the occasion of the World Environment Day. These included a green school campaign, tree planting, and clean-up campaigns meant to raise awareness on the importance of the sustainable use and protection of natural resources for food production. If food is wasted, all resources and inputs used in the production of food are also lost.
