The Nashville Church of Scientology is observing World Environment Day on June 2nd with a roundtable event for the environment.
The Church of Scientology is inviting key environmental advocates to a roundtable discussion on the theme: “It’s Your City – Green it Up,” to be held on June 2nd in honor of World Environment Day. Officials at the church say that this initiative will bring people together that care about the environment so they can connect and can do bigger things together.
“Our members care about the Earth. We all depend on it, it’s up to all of us to take care of it,” says Pastor of the Church, Rev. Brian Fesler, “we would like to extend an invitation to those committed to the environment to join us at this roundtable event.”
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.”
“That’s exactly what we are aiming to create in Nashville,” says Rev. Fesler.
“Green it Up” will take place on June 2nd at 3:00 pm. For more information or to participate, contact Julie Brinker at the church, 615-687-4600.
