World Environment Day/June 4th, 1-3pm/Kitchener City Hall

What is the future of our environment? What can we do?

These are among some of the questions that World Environment Day on June 5th wants to answer. This year’s theme is “Connecting people to Nature” – imploring us to “get outdoors and into nature, to appreciate its beauty and its importance, and to take forward the call to protect the Earth that we share.”

Under the umbrella of the Suzuki Foundation, Waterloo Region BlueDot will be hosting a World Environment Day event on June 4th, 1pm-3pm at Kitchener City hall. This is a free and family friendly event meant to create discussion about shape of our environment, what it means to people, and what we can do to help.

World Environment Day is meant to be a day of action – and across the world people are organizing World Environment Day events to explore these questions and take action. To find an event near you, visit the link below!
