Nashville, TN, April 04, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- It’s Your City – Green It Up. This has been the slogan for a series of meetings for World Environment Day, organized by the Way to Happiness Association of Tennessee, since 2016.
The Way to Happiness Association wants this event to bring people together who care about the environment so they can connect and do bigger things. The Way to Happiness Association was formed around the book The Way To Happiness, written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard.
The Way to Happiness 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 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.
Volunteers also plan to do cleanups around World Environment Day under this same banner.
World Environment Day occurs each year on June 5th and is celebrated by the United Nations. 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.”
