🌍 Today, May 3rd, is World Press Freedom Day! This annual observance celebrates the fundamental principles of press freedom and defends the media from attacks on their independence.

The theme for 2024 is “A Press for the Planet: Journalism in the Face of the Environmental Crisis.” It highlights the vital role that free, independent journalism plays in raising awareness and spurring action on environmental issues affecting our planet.

A free press is a cornerstone of democracy and sustainable development. Let’s appreciate the journalists who risk their lives to report the truth about environmental degradation, climate change impacts, and ecological threats around the world. Their work informs the public and holds leaders accountable.

On this World Press Freedom Day, I encourage everyone to support quality journalism that prioritizes facts over fiction when it comes to covering the environmental crisis. A well-informed society is crucial for protecting our one and only home – Planet Earth. 🌎
