World Environment Day


One more year, Sotavento commemorates the World Environment Day, a UN Environment-led global event.

Each year this event revolves around a different theme to focus attention on a specific problem. The theme for the year 2018 is “Beat Plastic Pollution”, and is a call for individuals to take charge of their surroundings and realise the severity of using plastic in daily life.

Today, our activities tried to make participants aware that we can change our daily habits easily and effortlessly to reduce the use of disposable plastics that so negatively affect our environment.
