Nashville, TN, May 25, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- According to the Nashville Area Metro Planning Organization, “More and more transportation, and polices that guide the expansion of transportation infrastructure, are increasingly linked to a variety of environmental issues.” It’s no doubt that Nashville has been experiencing unprecedented growth, but what is happening to the natural environment as this growth occurs? That is the subject of the upcoming World Environment Day festival “Growing Nashville” taking place at the Church of Scientology, in partnership with the Way to Happiness Association of Tennessee, on June 1st.
The festival, which begins at 1:00 pm, will have a presentation by the Metro Nashville Beautification and Environment Commission’s Horticulturist, followed by live music and information from other community initiatives to help the city.
The Way to Happiness Association, which is sponsoring the event, was formed around the book The Way To Happiness, written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. The book 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.
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.”
