This month’s calendar is a tribute to His Majesty the Third Druk Gyalpo, Jigme Dorji Wangchuck, who was born on May 2nd, 1928.
His Majesty is known as the Architect of Modern Bhutan- after years of isolation while the world went through wars and conflict, Bhutan finally began to open its doors to the outside world, and the foundations for modern Bhutan were laid down.

A bit more about the celebrations.

This year they commemorated a new waste management strategy in honor.

From the queen's facebook page

Quote:
It is a pleasure to be here today for the launch of the ‘National Waste Management Strategy’.
This launch is an important and timely milestone in our country’s continued efforts to remain a sustainable Nation, with the aim to manage and produce the least possible amount of waste in the years to come. Of vital importance to this objective is the commitment and engagement required from all public and private institutions and offices, as well as every citizen of Bhutan.
Today, we are witnessing an exponential increase in waste generation, especially in urban areas. I am aware of and disheartened by the growing scale of garbage that we find on the roads, in drains and along footpaths in and around urban centres. As a result, during the monsoon season, rain water contaminated with waste from clogged drains overflow onto our streets and rivers. Besides creating dire health hazards for our communities, the waste eventually finds its way into oceans, and the consequences are far-reaching and global. That this occurs in spite of the persistent emphasis on the issue of waste management continues to be a cause of grave concern.
The outcome of our neglect has only one path – the gradual degradation of our natural heritage. This has been protected for generations by deliberate and carefully thought out policies that were created under the visionary leadership of His Majesty The Fourth Druk Gyalpo, and continues to be sustained under the progressive guidance of His Majesty The King. According to our country’s Constitution, it is the mandate of every citizen to protect our pristine environment for the benefit of present and future generations. If today, we fail to consider the deeper and far reaching consequences of our behavior and ignore our civic duties, then we are failing the ideals upon which our country has been so conscientiously built.
Yet, I know that these are concerns that all of us share. These challenges require a responsive change in the collective mindset, to truly grasp the increasing threat of waste and the profound consequences that our actions have on our environment, biodiversity and climate.
I am glad to see principals of various schools across Thimphu present here today. Educators and all of us as adults, bear a responsibility to ensure that our young students understand the importance of their personal involvement in this initiative. The future which we shape by our decisions today will be lived by their generation. Therefore, encouraging young minds to be actively involved in creating and achieving the objectives we aspire for together is crucial.
As I have said before, consistency remains key in ensuring the success of our endeavours and our activities should not be limited to events such as these. I was very pleased to hear that the taxi drivers in Thimphu carry recycled thrash bags made out of old school uniforms, to prevent and reduce littering by passengers and commuters. I commend them for this wonderful initiative. I would also like to thank the Government agencies, CSOs and individuals who remain committed to the cause of waste management and environmental preservation. Your tireless efforts to do what you can in raising awareness and promoting behavioral changes for the reduction and management of waste is deeply appreciated.
While such efforts continue, it is important for us to realize that the responsibility to keep our country clean does not fall upon a single organization or entity. It is imperative that we work together, as every individual can make a difference.
Today, let us renew our pledge to fulfill our individual duties to keep our surroundings clean and aesthetically pleasing, the benefits of which will extend to a sense of well-being and happiness that we all undoubtedly feel in beautiful spaces.
It is my personal view that we can ensure positive transformations if we work together, but it is integral to act now, for any delay will be too late and the damage to our environment would be irreversible.
I would like to end with a quote from His Majesty which summarizes everything that I have just said:
"Where we live must be clean, safe, organised, and beautiful, for national integrity, national pride, and for our bright future. This too is nation building."
Thank you and Tashi Delek!

Its a fitting celebration of the former king. During his reign, Jigme Singye (current king's dad and 4th king) was a huge supporter of environmental preservation. Work he has continued since his son took the throne. He introduced several national parks during his reign, and the study of environmental studies to the school system among other things.
