Calendar of World Environmental Events 2012

by Bhavani Prakash

A very belated Happy and Green New Year to all our readers.  This is our first post for 2012. Like last year we start with the key environmental (and related) events in the months ahead.

We also take the opportunity to thank our team of Guest Writers for their wonderful perspectives so far and look forward to more in the coming months.  A special thanks to Bharathi Shiva, who has been helping us a lot with editorial work, and to Paul Schattenberg,  for his tremendous IT assistance despite a busy schedule.

And of course, we would love to acknowledge you, our dear reader, for your continued support.  We are much encouraged by the warm feedback we get from you and that is really what keeps us going!  As always, we would be happy to hear your suggestions and comments by email or through social media.

As we said last year:

“The dates we have compiled are found on several sites. Some are well known, and some came as a surprise to us as well. We do believe, no matter who or where you are, everyday is a day of celebration. Every day is a day for our dear planet Earth – for us to respect, conserve and manage her precious resources in a sustainable way. Every day is a day for peace and compassion.”

If we’ve missed out any important dates below, do let us know and we’ll be glad to add them in.  We found quite a few new ones and have updated the list for your benefit and interest. Here it is:


October : TBA International Day of Climate Action by 350.org
First Week of October:  Junk Mail Awareness Week
October :     Non GMO Month  http://www.nongmomonth.org/

Meat Free Days are a campaign to encourage a meat free diet one day a week, usually Mondays or Wednesdays. The purpose is to reduce human induced climate change, improve animal welfare and human health. Singapore’s green groups have launched a Veggie Thursday campaign.
