We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment.
The United Nations Environmental Programme is a branch within the United Nations designed to protect the environment and deal with ecological issues at the global and regional levels. Since its creation in June 1972 as a result of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, UNEP has focused on multiple noteworthy areas within the environment, including climate change, natural disasters, and the usage and depletion of resources.
