The international concern for environment was first immerged in the United Nations
Conference on Human Environment in Stockholm in June 1972 where a declaration
was made that

(i)Man has the fundamental right to freedom, equality and adequate conditions
of life in an environment of quality that permits a life of dignity and well being.

(ii)Man bears a solemn responsibility to protect and improve the environment
for present and future generations.

This declaration was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in December
1972 and June 5 was declared as the World Environment Day.

The conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe on August 1, 1975, announced
that “Environmental protection was important both for the well being of the people
and economic progress of the country”.

An international conference on environmental education was held at New Delhi
in Dec. 1982 stressing the need of formal and informal environmental education right
from childhood.
