History of International Day of the Tropics

United Nations Decision and the First Report

On June 14, 2016, the United Nations said that June 29 will be the International Day of the Tropics. They picked this date to remember the first ‘State of the Tropics Report,’ started by Myanmar’s Nobel Laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi, in 2014.

Where the Tropics Are and the Problems They Face

The tropics are a warm area on Earth, between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. But, these places are in trouble because of climate change, cutting down trees, building cities, and more.

Working Together and the First Report

People from twelve top tropical research places worked together to make the first State of the Tropics Report. It came out on June 29, 2014. To remember this, the United Nations made June 29 the International Day of the Tropics in 2016.

Significance of International Day of the Tropics

Saving Trees: Really Important

On this day, we talk about why it’s crucial to save trees. Trees help us breathe, give us food, and even things to wear. Without trees, we wouldn’t survive.

Learning More about Tropical Areas

This day helps us understand the problems tropical places face. It shows how these problems affect everyone around the world. It also tells us that we need to change how we think about saving these places.

Getting Closer to Nature

In our busy lives, we forget how much nature helps us. This day reminds us that we are a part of nature and we need to take care of it. Protecting tropical areas is especially important because it can help stop the Earth from getting too warm.

In short, the International Day of the Tropics is not just about looking at how pretty these places are. It’s a day to do something about the problems they have and to understand why they are so important for the world’s future.
