World Environment Day
World Environment Day is an international celebration commemorated every year on 5 June to recognise the first United Nations Conference on the Human Environment at Stockholm in 1972.
The purpose of this conference was to formulate 'A Global Agenda for Change'. It envisioned and promoted the notion of Sustainable Development - to ensure that development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
For further information about International theme, please see the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) website.
Primary School Poster Competition
Between February and June every year Logan City Council hosts a primary school poster competition in celebration of World Environment Day (which is held on 5 June every year).
Logan City Council's 2015 World Environment Day Competition is now closed.
Primary Schools were encouraged to participate in the competition and have students create a landscape, A3 size poster relating to Logan's World Environment Day's theme, 'Refill not Landfill' which aligns with the Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF) theme for 2015. Primary Schools were then responsible for posting or delivering their 5 best entries from each grade level to Council.
All received entries were judged by Council and the following winners were chosen:
- 13 Overall winners received a prize and certificate and their poster will feature in the 2016 World Environment Day calendar;
- 7 Highly Commended winners each received a certificate and prize; and
- All registered participants received a prize.
Overall winners and Highly Commended winners were presented with their prizes at an award presentation ceremony held at Logan City Council's annual environmental event, LEAF (Logan Eco Action Festival) on Sunday 31 May 2015. All winning posters were displayed at LEAF and the Logan Art Gallery.
The 2016 World Environment Day Calendars will be available for free from any Council library or customer service centre in November 2015. Copies of the 2015 World Environment Day Calendar (PDF 13361 KB)may still be available at libraries and customer service centres.
