Celebrating Nature’s Diversity: World Environment Day 2024

Nowadays, due to standard lifestyle and many reasons, the environment is getting polluted. In such a situation, it is very important to protect the environment from pollution to give a safe life to the coming generations. In such a situation, World Environment Day is celebrated every year with the aim of increasing awareness about it. To live a better life, it is very important to have a good environment. But nowadays pollution is increasing day by day. In such a situation, it is very important to reduce it and protect the environment. Not only the smoke coming out of factories and plants, many other reasons are responsible for this increasing pollution. Because in today’s time, due to pollution, many respiratory diseases like asthma are increasing day by day.

World Environment Day: it  is celebrated every year on 5 June to make people aware about the problems related to nature. On this occasion, programs are organized at various places to increase awareness among citizens regarding the environment. On this occasion, people are told about the damage being done to the environment.

History Of Environment Day: The decision to celebrate World Environment Day was taken by the United Nations in the Stockholm Conference in the year 1972. Whose theme was environmental protection. After this, it was decided to celebrate World Environment Day every year on 5th June. This special day was celebrated for the first time on 5 June 1974.

Theme of Environment Day 2024

Every year a different theme is decided for this special day. This year the theme focuses on “Land restoration, desertification and drought” like the slogan Hamari Bhoomi. Last year, the theme of 2023 World Environment Day was based on solutions to plastic pollution.

Together we will heal the earth for save the environment: We are working on many types of practices to save the environment. One of these sustainable agriculture practices is. Sustainable agriculture is a philosophy and set of practices that together meet three distinct conditions we are working on these conditions:

Respecting the environment and protecting natural resources.
To ensure a fair and adequate income for farmers at present.
Not compromising the ability of the next generations to make a living on agriculture and to receive fair and adequate incomes in the future.

There are thousands of examples and different aspects of sustainable agriculture. As a general philosophy, adopting sustainable agriculture means farming without polluting the environment (soil, air and water), and without depleting and natural resources and without disrupting the ecosystem and biodiversity by your actions can produce adequate yield in a particular crop.

In sustainable agriculture we use these practices for save the environment

Crop Rotation:- Crop rotation is the practice of planting different crops sequentially on the same plot of land to improve soil health, optimize nutrients in the soil, and combat pest and weed pressure. In today’s time, if we look at the decrease in agricultural production and productivity, then lack of crop rotation principle is also an important reason for this.

Because not adopting the principle of crop rotation leads to degradation of fertile land, depletion of beneficial microorganisms from the soil, increase in harmful insects, deterioration in the physical and chemical properties of the land.

Organic farming:– Organic agriculture is a production system that maintains the health of soils, ecosystems, and people. It depends on cycles adapted to ecological processes, biodiversity and local conditions, rather than on the use of inputs that have adverse effects. Organic agriculture combines tradition, innovation and science for the benefit of the shared environment and promotes fair relations and good quality of life for all people involved.

Cover crops:- Cover crops are crops planted specifically to improve soil health and fertility, manage weeds, and reduce erosion. These can be grown as a single crop or in combination with other crops and are usually selected based on their specific benefits and soil needs.

Examples of cover crops include legumes, grasses, and broadleaf plants. Planting cover crops can improve soil structure and richness, reduce soil erosion, and increase beneficial microorganisms in the soil, which can benefit subsequent crops.

Vermicompost:- Vermicompost is a type of organic compost made from the waste of worms. It is made by feeding insects organic matter such as food remains, yard waste and paper products. Worms break down the materials into nutrient-rich soil that can be used to improve soil quality in gardens and potted plants. Vermicompost is a sustainable and eco-friendly way of recycling organic waste and improving soil health.

Sustainable Livestock farming:– Sustainable livestock farming is an eco-friendly practice that aims to meet the world’s growing demand for animal products while reducing the negative environmental impact of traditional farming methods.

Sustainable agricultural practices include the adoption of crop rotation, grazing and other feeding methods that promote soil health, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimize water consumption. Sustainable farming also promotes animal welfare and ethical and fair labor practices. Sustainable livestock farming is becoming increasingly popular in many parts of the world as consumers become more aware of the impact their food choices have on the environment and animals.

Minimum Tillage:- Min-till or reduced tillage is cultivating land using mechanical methods other than plowing to reduce soil disturbance. This method is growing in popularity and there are new machines designed specifically for min-till farming. It is based on the principle of reducing soil deformability and preserving soil structures, which can improve soil deformability, reduce erosion and increase water infiltration.

Minimum tillage can be achieved through various franchises including crop rotation, management management and conservation tillage technicians.
Minimal tillage can be beneficial for soil health and tillage, but requires soil health and management to be effective.

Bio Diversity:- ‘Biodiversity’ is made up of two words: ‘biological’, which means biology or relating to living organisms, and ‘diversity’, which means a range of different things or variety. Biodiversity is variation at the genetic, species and ecosystem levels. Biodiversity is the diversity of all living things: the different plants, animals and microorganisms, the different genetic information they contain, and the diverse ecosystems they create.

Conclusion:- If we take long term prospective, organic farming is necessary to sustain to life on the mother earth. World Environment Day inspires us not just to think about nature one day, but to be conscious of the environment every day and understand our responsibilities to save it and become responsible citizens.

If every person takes many small steps like planting trees, reducing the use of vehicles, saving water etc. For this, if we move forward and take the responsibility of protecting the environment, then the environment can be protected through these small efforts and this is very important for the coming generations.
