Nine out of ten people breathe polluted air. From 24 May, through to #WorldEnvironmentDay on June 5, UN Environment is calling on everyone to join the Mask Challenge. Face masks are a great symbol to show leaders we want to breathe clean air. Alongside celebrities, influencers and creators, the World Environment Day campaign invites everyone to:
1. Decide what action you are going to take to #BeatAirPollution.
Here are some examples:
2. Make a pledge and challenge others to take action - May 24th–June 4th
3. On World Environment Day, June 5th, show how you have fulfilled your pledge!
Take another photo or video of yourself fulfilling your commitment and post it on social media.
Use #WorldEnvironmentDay and #BeatAirPollution in your social media posts and don’t forget to tag @UNEnvironment.
