Today, June 5, is the World Environment Day.
The reason it’s observed on this date is that UN environment conference started in Stockholm (of all places) on June 5th 1972.
Due to this date, I’ve noted new stickers in some washrooms here in Dubai, with the text:
“Imagine a world without water – don’t waste water”
And, for the first time, I noted that someone had forgotten to close the water tap, next to the new sign.
The purpose is, of course, good. But there’s a problem with the text. As you may be aware, what you imagine becomes reality. So, if anyone would have asked me, I’d suggested the following text:
Imagine a world where there’s enough water for everyone – take care of the water!
