World Environment Day, June 5, 2017

Eleanor McCloskey, CND for JPIC

It’s a great day to make time to reflect on the natural world, to connect in some way with nature and nature’s wonders. “Connecting People to Nature” is the theme for World Environment Day 2017. Begun in 1972, World Environment Day is a huge annual opportunity for positive environmental action. This year’s host country Canada chose the theme and will be at the centre of celebrations around the planet. Schools, governments, businesses, scientists and citizens are organizing events to inspire us to appreciate our dependence on the natural world and fire up our desire to protect it. How long since you let your bare feet touch the earth? How recently have your senses enjoyed the fresh fragrances in the natural world? When have you heard bird songs or identified butterflies? Connect!
