5 June is celebrated as the World Environment Day since 1972. It marks the day when the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment (or the Stockholm Conference) convened with participation from 113 nations. This further led to the setting up of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
The Workshop was followed by the Taj Declaration to Beat Plastic Pollution and pledge was taken to make areas around the Taj Mahal free from litter. It was also decided to take immediate steps to reduce single-use plastic around the Taj Mahal.
