Organizado por Proyecto R y la Municipalidad de Trevelin, alumnos de las Escuelas Nº 96 de Aldea Escolar y Nº 25 de Lago Futalaufquen realizaron en el Parque Nacional Los Alerces una plantación de especies autóctonas en una zona afectada por el incendio ocurrido en el año 2008. Los alumnos de 3º grado de la Escuela Nº 96, acompañados por docentes, directivos, padres, personal del Municipio y del Parque Nacional Los Alerces compartieron con alumnos de 4º grado y docentes de la Escuela Nº 25 una experiencia única al poder participar de una jornada de plantación de especies autóctonas como parte del programa de restauración de bosque nativo que llevan adelante el maestro de huerta Boris Saez y el guardaparque Iván Hoermann. Por razones climáticas, debimos adelantar la actividad, ya que hacia fines de mayo la lluvia y la nieve hacen que el acceso al lugar sea muy dificultoso. Los chicos primero conocieron acompañados por Boris el funcionamiento del vivero de plantas nativas donde se producen los plantines que son utilizados en el programa y luego se trasladaron a un sector de bosque quemado en la zona de Laguna Larga donde recorrieron el lugar y realizaron la actividad de plantación de plantines de radal, maitén, ñire, chacay y notro. Desde Proyecto R y la Municipalidad de Trevelin agradecemos a Boris e Iván por el interés y compromiso demostrado que permitieron a los chicos compartir esta experiencia de concienciación sobre el cuidado de nuestro planeta.

Margahovit
Armenia Tree Project (ATP) celebrated World Environment Day at the John and Artemis Mirak Nursery in Margahovit Village. The event was attended by the staff from ATP’s Yerevan Office and the Mirak Reforestation Nursery, along with their families. “The children made friends instantly and started playing together,” explained ATP Community Development Specialist Vardan Melikyan. “The nursery workers invited musicians from the village to take part in our gathering and the kids had fun dancing to traditional live music in the fresh mountain air.” ATP’s Environmental Education staff presented notebooks and the children drew beautiful pictures of nature and trees which now decorate the inside of the building at the nursery. After an outdoor lunch, ATP specialists showed the children how to plant trees and they planted five symbolic evergreens at the nursery. “Everyone, especially the children, had a great time and ATP hopes to organize similar events with our stakeholders in the future,” concluded Melikyan. World Environment Day is a widely celebrated global day for environmental action. The UN Environment Programme describes it as a day for people from all walks of life to come together to ensure a cleaner, greener, and brighter outlook for themselves and future generations, and this year’s theme was “Forests: Nature at Your Service.” http://www.armeniatree.org/atpnews/news_press_061011.htm

As a first step toward reforesting a woodland for human foraging (in the form of a research station, using permaculture & local vegetation principles according to WeForest website), I am beginning a walk & nutrition experiment for 2 months. It is designed according to principles presented at http://sites.google.com/site/howdowestop/home and will test the 'Water Stress Hypothesis' of the general ecology of health (my specialty). see http://waterstress.blogspot.com/ This will take place on a station near Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia. Results will be written up and shared. The broader consequences of this work involve using up less of the planet's resources in food and water, and deforesting less.

This year Griffith Business School from Griffith University will join other organisations and individuals from around the world in celebrating WED. Linking into this year’s WED theme, Forests: Nature at your service, we will be holding a ‘No Print Day’ on Monday June 6. The goal of the day is to reduce office paper use, and forms part of our School’s push to integrate sustainability into our day-to-day operations. The production and use of office paper results in a range of environmental impacts from harvesting trees (for virgin paper), processing materials, transportation, printing to disposal or recycling. Combined, these stages impact on biodiversity and create other land management issues, use vast amounts of energy and water, produce air- and waterborne pollutants and generate greenhouse gases. Each day across the School we print approximately 9,100 sheets of paper. Annually this equates to over 3,300,000 sheets of paper. Most estimates are that at least half of that paper is thrown away within a week. Sadly, the School’s paper use is on the rise, increasing by 18% from 2009 to 2010. 'No Print Day' aims to raise awareness about this issue and challenge staff and students to rethink their printing practices. All participants go into the draw to win a prize hamper of sustainable office solutions.

I pledge to limit my contribution to anthropogenic climate change this World Environment Day, and beyond, by recycling both at home and work, by implementing a workplace recycling program. And by limiting my wasteful use of plastic bags and paper. And ensuring I do not financially contribute to deforestation by avoiding palm oil products. I pledge that I will ensure to remove powerpoint outlets in my home when the appliances are not in use. I also pledge to become more strict in my vegetarian eating habits to ensure I am contributing to unnecessarily excessive methane and carbon emissions.

Did you know? The Australian Government has recently committed $75.8 million over five years to fund the new Australian Carbon Trust. The bulk of that money will be spent on promoting energy efficiency in the business sector – and provides a unique opportunity for Australia’s property and construction sector to showcase and mainstream energy efficiency innovations. On Friday, 4 June the Property Council of Australia will proudly present Professor the Hon Robert Hill, who has recently returned to Australia to take up the role of chairman of the Australian Carbon Trust. Join us for this special World Environment Day breakfast to learn more about how the Australian Carbon Trust will leverage investment in energy efficiency activities in commercial buildings. Prizes and Enviro give-aways will be available on the day so don’t miss out on this great annual event!

I am an artist based in Tasmania, Australia and I always loved using crops and waste to create something interesting to my work. As a professional hair and makeup artist, I want to use my expertise for a good cause, I created a series called "Save the Earth". This year 2011, I want to highlight the event of World Environment Day to my state Tasmania because, I am originallly from Malaysia and from where I come from, we don't have such a beautiful nature scene like Tasmania do. And I hate to see them being abused by human hand. So I choose this location in Devonport where people cut down the forest and burns the trees to build a new commercial building which is a very strong scene to show people how bad it's. Smoke and noise was very disturbing. I collaborated with local photographer and reptiles expert Micheal Thow and his 11years old daugther Sumara Thow to create images for the campaigne. I am so glad the local newspaper has publish them today and share it with the entire Tasmanian with the message I want to bring. I created the outfit using recycled plastic as a part of the message Recyle. This is only my first series, and the second series will be done next week in a more controversial location, and I am looking forward to share it with the entire world.

If we lose the Tasmanian devil, we risk losing much more. The species is one link in a vital ecosystem that is in delicate balance. Changing ecosystem dynamics through the loss of a top-order predator will have a devastating effect on other plant and animal species. We risk losing valuable habitat and we risk creating an imbalance in nature if we lose the Tasmanian devil from our landscape. An enduring and ecologically functional population of Tasmanian devils living wild is critical. It is our number-one aim. We're asking donors to help us by helping us build an important Insurance Population for Tasmanian devils that will help us one day restore devils to their natural habitat. We are seeking a tax deductible donation, equivalent to the cost of housing a Tasmanian devil in our vital Insurance Population: $7,000—equivalent to housing one devil for one year. $584—equivalent to housing one devil for one month. $292—equivalent to housing one devil for one fortnight. One Devil. One Appeal. One Opportunity.

In the past Huskisson was a boat building and logging town. Participants will be able to paint and decorate large pieces of tree top foliage. As each piece of foliage is completed it will be attached to the tree trunk stumps. By the end of the activity a symbolic forest will have been created.This activity represents the past activities of our community, our ongoing efforts to protect our bushland and forests and an opportunity to be part of the United Nations global theme of Forests: Nature at your Service.

Lennox Head
World Environment Day (WED) is celebrated each year, to stimulate worldwide awareness of environmental issues. To coincide with WED GeoLINK and Ballina Shire Council host an annual Lennox Head Community Tree Planting day, with assistance from local community groups and volunteers. Our goal is to reinvigorate the Lennox headland by planting native seedlings of littoral rainforest species. In doing so, Ballina Shire Council, GeoLINK and the wider Lennox community are creating a lasting natural legacy for generations to come as the rainforest is reinstated to how it existed in the 1800s. Now in its 9th year, this popular local community event wlll take place on Friday 3 June (from 9 am to 12 pm). As illustrated in the aerial map (attached) a large area encompassing the Lennox Headland and Lennox Head Surfing Reserve have been re-planted since the event’s inception in 2003, but there is still a lot more work to be done. GeoLINK invites local groups and organisations to be a part of the day by organising a component of the day or an associated activity. Tree “sponsorship” is also available and provides a unique way to contribute. As always, the Lennox Head community is encouraged to become involved by coming along to the top of the headland on the day, and helping to plant some trees. For more information, please contact Catherine Cheyne at GeoLINK on 02 6687 7666 or email info@geolink.net.au.

"all sectors of society"? People living on a shoestring, do NOT use up more resources and decrease their spending & needs. Who/what rewards their contribution? (economically "negative", devalued, not an "urgently strengthened... positive action"). The ‘BASIC’ approach, , reduces pressure by reducing need pressure: reducing all activities targeting survival (inherently self-centered). Human pressure: Ecologic(population): I face sensory & emotional/stress overload to my sensitive brain; Economic: I face homelessness. I must now live the 'simple life’ (no rat stress), or face costly, painful, slow die-out. I have no access to undegraded land, so I go 'walkabout', using my car as a 'basecamp' (fewer needs/expenses), yet without giving up 'modern technology' or intelligence. A solar panel runs a fridge (for amino-acid therapy), water filter, laptop (mobile network modem for maps & Skype safety contact). This is an experiment in restoring 'proto-health' to my fast degenerating, resources exhausted menopausal body & overextended brain-mind: a rehydration strategy and spontaneous non-reactive behaviours both help REDUCE the sense of ‘UNSAFE’ & physiologic pains of 'need', and help STOP the deployment of auto-reinforcing survival behaviours (‘DRIVERS THAT AMPLIFY EACH OTHER’), to breathe at ease at last. Future experiment: raising a FEMALE INFANT ORANGUTAN foraging on a research station: non ‘Human benefit’ = non-survival driven chronic-acute behaviour. [see PhD thesis/book]

This Friday is World Environment Day 2010. WED is aiming to be the biggest, most widely celebrated, global day for positive, environmental action. Commemorated on 5 June since 1972, WED is one of the principle vehicles through which the UN simulates worldwide awareness of the environment and encourages political attention and action. As a sustainability leader, ISIS encourages everyone to wear ‘green’ or your favourite ‘eco slogan’ T-shirt to show your support for the environment this Friday. The Melbourne office will be screening a copy of ‘Telling the Truth’ on Friday afternoon. This short documentary traces seven of Al Gore’s Climate Project Connectors. Based on Al Gore’s presentation ‘An Inconvenient Truth,’ this 45 min film demonstrates the influence individuals can have in combating dangerous climate change. The film tracks presentations given by a number of inspirational people including a rugby player, doctor, home maker, social worker and a small town electrician. We would like to encourage everyone to show this special 45 minute documentary in your office. Geoff Gourley of the Melbourne office just so happens to be a Climate Project Connector for Al Gore and would be more than happy to provide this for you. For further discussion about the event please contact Geoff Gourley. So show your support and be a part of World Environment Day 2010.

Our organisation works with 30 local goverment councils across the Melbourne metropolitan region to manage municipal solid waste more sustainbly. We work in the areas of waste contracting, infrastructure development and community education with the aim of minimising waste and encouraging more resource recovery through activities such as recycling. We are planning to send a message from the Chairman our Board to all of our stakeholders reminding them that their efforts to sustainably manage waste can help protect our precious biodiversity. We will also be putting this message on our website. We hope this inspires all our stakeholders to continue working hard at local actions such as recycling and litter prevention in the knowledge that this is part of a much bigger picture.

We did a variety of things over the school week beginning on the 30th of May. Each of our sustainability action teams organised an event that reflected their team. The events were published in the school newsletter to inform the community about World Environment Day along with some information about WED. Our Sustainability Action team leaders announced what they were doing at a whole school assembly: Biodiversity - planted some seedings, harvested basil and sold it and they sold green ribbons on Friday for WED. Energy held an hour without power on the last hour on Friday Waste - bottled and sold worm juice made from our compost bin waste. We also started our house points system for 'Rubbish Free Lunches' aiming for rubbish free lunches every day.

I am going to plant a strawberry bush. I think strawberries represent love and hope and that's what I want others in hard times to have and feel. Also strawberries taste yummy! I am planting this bush in the name of other children and living creatures to represent my love and care for them. I hope they experience it as well as hope. I want other kids like me to do it too and maybe even sponsor a child like my family does! The world would be so peaceful. Strawberries are the sweetness of life!

For World Environment Day we will be conducting Tree Plantings, removing Noxious Shrubs and conducting talks on how we maintain our school grounds to improve not only the amenity for the human fauna (ie. the school community), but also the fauna of the environment in which we live in. Lindfield Public School is located on top of the ridge line in what was once Blue Gum High Forest. Currently, we have possums, bandicoots and brush turkeys, not to mention many birds (rosellas, cockatoos, Myna's....) By planting native trees and shrubs we hope to encourage more native fauna to return to the area. We also hope to educate the children and their parents on the importance of caring for the environment. Email us on leaf@lpspandc.org.au if you have any questions!

Willoughby City Council will host an event to celebrate the success of the Wildlife Story Book Competition at Warners Park, The Outpost, Northbridge on Thursday 2 June, 12:30pm. The Wildlife Story Book Competition was introduced as part of a new educational project designed to facilitate ‘kids teaching kids’. Council’s Wildlife Officers provided talks and bushwalks to local Year Five students that focused on a significant animal for each school. The students were then asked to write a creative story about the animal to read to a Year Two buddy. The event will unveil the stories chosen to be published as a collection of story books that will be distributed to 20 local and school libraries in the Willoughby area. Each participating school will have a story published and the top three school story books will receive supplies to help with school gardens or assist in creating a special habitat garden for the school’s chosen animal.

For the third time the Austrian NGO "die umweltberatung" in cooperation with the United Nations Family in Vienna, especially UNOV. EDT are a public event that aims at stimulating an ongoing regular discussion on environmental issues in the region with experts and stakeholders from different levels and disciplines. With the general theme “Chemistry takes Responsibility” the Environment Day Talks intended to build a bridge to the this year’s UN International Year of Chemistry. They wanted to raise attention on the complex interlinkages between the chemical industry and the environment and to explore if and how the chemical industry can operate in a sustainable way that can ultimately contribute to the protection of our environment. UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner welcomed the participants in an opening video message and highlighted the role and responsibility that chemistry has for the individual, the society, the environment and the economy. Over 150 participants from the public and private sector, governmental and non-governmental organizations, science and politics attended the conference to exchange their views on the role and responsibility of chemistry. The conference was started the evening before with a science cabaret, which presented spectacular experiments and humoristic infotainment.
