Hence, World environment day (‘wed’) is celebrated every year on 5th June. The Brand Ambassador of “V Go Green” Campaign ACTOR ILAYATHALAPATHY VIJAY planted a sapling on this occasion and launched the year-long Campaign to save Mother Earth and to raise global awareness of the need to take positive environmental action. It is run by the United Nations environment programme (UNEP).

This year Youth Exnora International and US Consulate General are organizing a week campaign with the aim of spreading awareness among the people and promote green energy and products. It will be held in the span from 3-6-13 to 9-6-13. Actor Ilayathalapathy vijay is supporting the campaign and he is the ambassador for the world environment day celebration for which YOUTHINK is a co-organizer and Coordination partner.
