Tomorrow is the World Environment Day (WED). In support of the UN designation of 2014 as the International Year of Small Island Developing States (SIDS), WED this year will adopt SIDS in the broader context of climate change as its theme.

1. Thousands have joined UNEP Goodwill Ambassadors Don Cheadle, Gisele Bündchen, Yaya Touré and Ian Somerhalder. With more than 3000 pledges there’s still time to join your chosen team — Power Down, Reduce Food Waste, Purge Plastics or Go Greener!

2. Join the WED community from India, Australia, US, Spain, UK, Singapore, Grenada, Brazil, Barbados, Mexico, Argentina and more who have signed up.
