Message from Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO, on the World Environment Day

Message from Ms Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO on the occasion of the World Environment Day, Green Economy: does it include you?, 5 June 2012

We know the future we want for all. We want a future where every girl and boy can fulfil their rights and capacities and make a rewarding contribution to society. We want a future where we can live in a healthy setting, with strong bonds to nature and a rich diversity of social relations. For this, we need a flourishing environment. We need to create green economies.

This is our message for the 2012 World Environment Day. This is the flag we will raise at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio.
