Pittsburgh to host World Environment Day

In the wake of the recent G20 summit hosted in Pittsburgh, PA the United Nations announced Pittsburgh will host World Environment Day scheduled for June 5, 2010. World Environment Day was created by the UN Environment Programme in 1972 to stimulate environmental awareness and action. The theme for 2010 is “Biodiversity: Connecting with Nature”.

Pittsburgh based Bayer Corporation played a key role in Pittsburgh’s selection as the host city for the event.

Bayer is one of UNEP’s most important global and regional World Environment Day partners. Once again the attention of the world will be on Pittsburgh’s environmental and sustainability progress, particularly in the areas of biodiversity, green jobs and workforce development, and environmental education.

For companies and organizations that wish to showcase their green efforts, it’s a tremendous opportunity to do so on the world stage through special events. The planning of those events should begin now and Pierce Events stand ready to assist in those efforts.
