This year the theme of World Environment Day 2020 is “Celebrate Biodiversity”.
Did you know?
Biodiversity is the shortened form of two words “biological” and “diversity”. It refers to all the variety of life that can be found on Earth (plants, animals, fungi and micro-organisms) as well as to the communities that they form and the habitats in which they live. With almost 1 million plant & animal species facing extinction, there has never been a more important time to focus on biodiversity.
World Environment Day promotes ways to improve the Earth’s environment.
Our focus at Mankwe GAMETRACKERS for the entire month of June will be to drive the concept of keeping our environment clean.
Covid-19 has become the center of attention for everyone in South Africa and the world at large. Key issues and messages are receiving less and less attention one such being the environment and conservation. Therefore, our hashtags this year are #KeepSafe, #KeepOurEnvironmentclean, #LiftTheLitter. We believe this message will bring back awareness and even probe the proper disposing of Covid-19 related litter. As restrictions are lifting, the litter must be lifted too.
So as we celebrate today, we would like to remind all our teams, our customers, partners and our communities at large to lift the litter whilst in lockdown…
