143 countries take part in World Environment Day, an environmental awareness day run by the United Nations. The aim of the day is to raise awareness of the environment and specific environmental issues.

As stated on the United Nations World Environment Day website ‘World Environment Day 2019 will urge governments, industry, communities, and individuals to come together to explore renewable energy and green technologies, and improve air quality in cities and regions across the world.’
