AFRICA ENVIRONMENT DAY
Africa Environment Day, celebrated annually on 3 March, was established by the then Organization of African Unity in 2002 as a way of raising awareness of the pressing environmental challenges facing the continent. Since 2012, the Africa Environment Day has been celebrated in conjunction with Wangari Maathai Day, in order to pay tribute to the late Nobel Laureate's green legacy.
