World Environment Day | June 5, 2010
Every year, June 5 marks World Environment Day. Founded in 1972 by the United Nations, World Environment Day was created to encourage people to become aware of the issues surrounding our global environments, so that we as global citizens can help ensure a bright future for us and generations to come.
In 2009, Omaha, NE, was fortunate to have been the North American host city for World Environment Day. Personally, I feel very proud of this factoid, and amazed at how the citizens of my hometown were able to come together and become more aware of our environment.

This year's North American celebration will be hosted in Pittsburgh, PA. The host city has created a wonderfully interactive website for those interested in the event. Please visit www.pittsburghwed.com for information on tomorrow's activities and celebration.
Happy World Environment Day!
