World Environment Day – 5 June 2017

‘Connecting People to Nature’, the theme for World Environment Day 2017, implores 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.

Landmarks from China and Thailand to Morocco and Canada will be bathed in green light to remind citizens of the need to protect the environment.

As night sweeps around the globe on 5 June, landmarks including the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the Empire State Building, and Turin’s elegant Mole Antonelliana will turn green to highlight the need to protect our threatened environment.
