05 Jun 2009 – 05 Jun 2009

Organization: Geneva Environment Network

The theme for World Environment Day (WED) 2009 was ‘Your Planet Needs You-UNite to Combat Climate Change’. It reflects the urgency for nations to agree on a new deal at the crucial climate convention meeting in Copenhagen some 180 days later in the year, and the links with overcoming poverty and improved management of forests. A special roundtable will be organized at the University of Geneva
