World Environment Day
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the World Environment Day, GentleWays for OurPlanet team is proud to share that the September 24th tree planting event we are sponsoring, is for members of our community. We’re planning a unique event that includes entertainment, words from local dignitaries and food, in addition to planting 125 trees in a local park.
GentleWays for OurPlanet engages with cultural groups in Ottawa to promote and celebrate environmental action. We planted so far via our mobile app 280 trees in Ottawa, and the September 24th will be our first in-person tree planting event.
The Lebanese-Canadian community has been contributing to building Ottawa in many different ways. Regreening Ottawa is another extremely important contribution that we would like to add to our history of cultural accomplishments in Canada.
World Environment Day is now the largest global environmental event, with millions of people in more than 150 countries participating. The host country for 2022 is Sweden and the theme is #OnlyOneEarth. Some of the very easy actions we can all take every day is composting for a healthier soil or using the green bin.
Happy World Environment Day!
