    Welcome to the forums.

    Your surroundings is what is physically all around you.

    Your environment is the physical place in which you live, but also conceptually the entire social, political and economic world.

    Your surroundings are the objects that you see and hear and smell etc. - that is, that affect you.
    The environment includes all the microscopic beasties, the subtle changes in microclimate and wind direction, the relative humidity - basically lots of things that are there, but which you don't notice.
