The Way to Happiness Association is observing World Environment Day on June 2nd with a networking event on behalf of the environment.
The Way to Happiness Association is planning an event for World Environment Day called “It’s Your City – Green it Up,” to be held on June 2nd. Organizers say that this initiative will bring people together that care about the environment so they can connect and can do bigger things together.
The Way to Happiness Association was formed around the book of the same name, written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. The Way to Happiness (TWTH) is filled with twenty-one precepts based on the fact that one’s survival depends on the survival of others. One of these precepts is “Safeguard and Improve the Environment,” which takes to heart the care for the planet. In applying this precept, the local Association has organized cleanup projects of all sorts, and now the local chapter wants to branch out and include all environmental organizations in a discussion to make an even bigger impact.
World Environment Day occurs each year on June 5th and is celebrated by the United Nations. Last year, the worldwide theme for the day was “Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care.” According to unep.org, World Environment Day “…has grown to be a broad, global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated by stakeholders in over 100 countries. It also serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something positive for the environment, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.”
“Green it Up” will take place on June 2nd at 4:00 pm in the community hall of the Nashville Church of Scientology. For more information or to participate, contact Julie Brinker at 615-687-4600.
