This is a United Nations designated day that has been celebrated every year since 1972. Governments and organisations around the world are urged to organise activities on that day view a view of deepening environmental awareness.

This is the first time the Cupertino outfit is marking the occasion with an Apple Watch challenge. Perhaps to make up for the fact that it didn’t hold the Earth Day Challenge last month. No doubt this is linked to the coronavirus pandemic.

But things seem to be easing up now in many countries and Apple thought it might be time to motivate their users to get active. On June 5th they’ll be able to earn a badge and special stickers by filling their Stand ring. This can be done by standing and moving around for at least one minute during 12 hours that day.

The good thing about this challenge is that it can be done in the comfort of your home. So even if you are affected by stay-at-home measures, there’s no excuse not to get the task done.

“Stand up for the planet on World Environment Day. Close your Stand ring on June 5 and earn this award by getting up and moving around for at least one minute during 12 hours that day,” Apple says.

The yet-to-be announced challenge will be available internationally. Users should start to see it appearing on their Watches soon.

Apple has issued a series of challenges over the years. This one will fall nearly three months since the March 8th challenge to celebrate International Women’s Day. That one required users to complete a 20-minute exercise walk, run, or wheelchair workout on the all important day.
