Full text of President's message:

It took several centuries for the Human beings to become modest enough to accept the fact that they are only one of the creations of the nature.

Even though human civilizations, from its origin, made efforts to change the natural environment to suit their needs, at present, due to frequently occurring of natural disasters, we have to admit that humans cannot survive without a sustainable environment. The nature reminds us its message through landslides, devastating floods and drought.

Nevertheless, we are not late to understand the message of the nature comprehensively, as well as to live in harmony with nature.

The 'Connecting People to Nature', the theme for World Environment Day 2017, invites all of us to unite to build that kind of nature-friendly relationship.

This year's World Environment Day, expects to bring knowledge and awareness to the people about the need to sustain environment in their activities and daily lifestyle. Avoiding lifestyle habits unfavorable to the nature and engaging in appropriate nature-friendly lifestyle habits is directly interconnected with the human survival.

I wish every success for all the World Environment Day programmes carried out to achieve these goals, and join with all those who contribute for the sustainability of the environment.
