Events

World environment day

World Environment day draws attention to environmental issues. World Environment Day was established in 1972 by the United Nations Assembly and held annually on 5th June And led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

World Environment Day 2024 focuses on land restoration, halting desertification and building drought resilience under the slogan “Our land. Our future. We are #GenerationRestoration.” We cannot turn back time, but we can grow forests, revive water sources, and bring back soils. We are the generation that can make peace with land. Land restoration is a key pillar of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030).

 In June 2024, a number of important events will be held to draw attention to solving climate change issues.


Goal of the month

In June, the UN pays special attention to the environment and defines 3 main goals – SDG13, SDG14 and SDG 15.

SDG13 – Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts – Draws attention to the problem of climate change and the need to use renewable energy sources. The key document is the Paris Agreement adopted in December 2015, the main task of which is to limit global warming to 1.5°C abovepre-industrial levels. During this period, the June UN climate Meetings are taking place in preparation for COP 29.


A series of UN events on information and communication technologies and artificial intelligence

From May 27 to 31, 2024, a series of events dedicated to aspects of artificial intelligence and issues of the information community are taking place at the UN venues.

The WSIS+20 Forum High-Level Event is scheduled to be held from 27 to 31 May.

The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) is a two-phase United Nations (UN) summit, first introduced by Tunisia in 1998. The summit aims to create an evolving multi-stakeholder platform to address issues raised by information and communication technologies (ICTs) at the national, regional, and international levels. 

The goal is to build a people-centric, inclusive, and development-oriented Information Society.

It brings together various stakeholders, including governments, civil societies, private sectors, academia, international organizations, and technical communities, to network, partner, and share insights on achieving Sustainable Development Goals through the framework of WSIS Action Lines. 


Fourth International Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS4)


In Antigua and Barbuda 27-30 May, the international community will gather to review SIDS’ sustainable development progress and propose a new decade of partnerships and solutions to supercharge their path to resilient prosperity. Global lockdowns left large holes in islands’ coffers and severely set back efforts to invest in the Sustainable Development Goals. Meanwhile, climate action is becoming increasingly urgent, as weather-related disasters have doubled in two decades: with island nations both most vulnerable and least responsible.

SIDS4 will aim to “agree on a new programme of action for SIDS with a focus on practical and impactful solutions and to forge new partnerships and cooperation at all levels”. Participants will discuss concrete, measurable targets to support SIDS in achieving their sustainable development objectives over the next ten years.
