World Environment Day 2017

World Environment Day is a day for everyone, everywhere. Since it began in 1972, global citizens have organized many thousands of events, from neighbourhood clean-ups, to action against wildlife crime, to replanting forests. ‘Connecting People to Nature’, the theme for World Environment Day 2017, implores us to get outdoors and into nature. Something that is so important in a world of city living, smartphones and 24/7 connectivity to work and news updates.

At Iken we strive to be as environmentally friendly as we can be, as well as helping clients to reach CSR goals, encouraged by our very green-minded home city of Bristol. Our software enables paper light working and remote collaboration, as well as trees being at our very core. Back in December I wrote about how getting outside can aid productivity at work, another reason to connect with nature - even if it just means taking the slightly more scenic route home, parks can be a green lung and a hub of biodiversity.

Every World Environment Day has a different global host country, where the official celebrations take place. The focus on the host country helps highlight the environmental challenges it faces, and supports the effort to address them. This year’s host is Canada.
