Tuesday, June 5, the world will celebrate the 2018 U.N. World Environment Day, a landmark for encouraging awareness and action about the environment.Despite the growing awareness about these threats – in part because of the World Environment Day – it has not been enough to achieve the required paradigm shift in global economic behavior, and, by consequence, nor a change in our environmental behavior.Lebanon has its own challenges with the environment and its very clear impact on our economy, and society.Unfortunately, Beirut has gone from hosting a global environment day to facing disastrous environmental challenges today, like our ongoing solid waste saga.Beirut must get back on the road to overcoming its current environmental challenges.The question of the environment is a fundamental one for the survival of our human race.The World Environment Day is an important event to spread awareness on that very issue.
