World environment day, 5 June 2018: "Beat plastic pollution "

The World Environment Day, corresponding to 5 June, is celebrated this year, 2018, by UNESCO under the theme “Beat plastic pollution ".

This theme encourages  the global communities to find together sustainable alternatives to reduce urgently the production and excessive use of plastic in order to reduce the impact of plastic pollution on the environment and individuals.

The national Commission for UNESCO celebrated the theme of this day through its national UNESCO network Associated Schools in order to raise awareness among schools of the harmful effects of the use of plastic on the environment such as plastic bags and bottles that  are not recyclable and take hundreds of years to break down.

"Belbachir Cheikh", in Sidi Belabes is one of the  examples of UNESCO Associated Schools  that has participated in the celebration of the World Environment Day through a cleaning action.
