15 ways to contribute to world environment day 2024

Our everyday activities as humans are so significant that they affect the world's environment, atmosphere, landscape, ecology and climate on a global, and often disruptive scale.

Dr Lize Barclay, senior Lecturer in Systems Thinking and Futures Studies, at Stellenbosch Business School, says all of us play a role in how we impact the environment.

The slogan for World Environment Day 2024 is: Our land. Our future. We are #GenerationRestoration. Originating in 1973, it was organised by the United Nations annually to motivate the world to consider the impact of human activities on the environment.

Since around the 1950s, the impact of humans on earth has been so significant that our activities influence the cycling of water and sediment and thus, we are now in, what is called, the Anthropocene.

Land restoration is one of the key pillars of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021 to 2030) which has been established to mobilise the world to protect and revive our ecosystems and take decisive steps in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals.
