Aimed at being the biggest and most widely celebrated global day for positive environmental action, World Environment Day (WED) is an annual event celebrated on 5 June every year. The celebration began in 1972 and has grown to become the one of the main vehicles through which the UN stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and encourages political attention and action.

This year, the WED theme is Forest: Nature at Your Service'. It underscore the intinsic link between quality of life and the health of forest and forest ecosystems. The theme also supports this year's UN International Year of Forests. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) elected India, one of the fastest growing economies in the world that is embracing the process of a transition to Green Economy, as the global host of WED celebration.

In celebration of Indonesian Environment Day 2011, the theme is adapted into 'Hutan Penyangga Kehidupan'. It emphasizes the essence of forest as guardian of the balance between the interest of humans and all other living things in the world. Consequently, maintained forest consevation is required to run that function. Nothing is more precious than harmonius life between humans and environment which includes the beachhead ecosysstem of flora and fauna.

As a part celebration, a stamp series of Environmental Care is issued on June 5, 2011. The stamp Design features pine forest as one of forest ecosystems commonly found in Indonesia.
