June 5th, each year brings two celebrations for us at PPNEA: the World day of Environment and the anniversary of the organization establishment, which this year is the 24th. World Day of Environment has been established in year 1972, and since that time is celebrated worldwide every year. The theme for this year is how the well-being of humanity, the environment and economies ultimately depend on the responsible management of the planet’s natural resources. Evidence is building that people are consuming far more natural resources than what the planet can sustainably provide. Along the last 25 years, the environment in Albania has been continuously haggled, including destruction of habitats and ecosystems, persecution of fauna, chemical pollution of natural resources and destruction of natural landscapes. Maim which is unfortunately still continuing, when thinking about the uncontrolled construction of hydro-power plants in every river and stream of the country, illegal construction in high natural value areas, illegal hunting and a whole series of different unsustainable ways of natural resources. In this day we should all reflect on how we are using our extraordinary rich natural environment, and understand the tremendous impacts that this brings for us and the future generations. As friendly as we will behave towards environment, as friendly the environment will behave with us. ''Warm greetings from PPNEA through this very genuine video-message''
