“Connecting People to Nature – in the city and on the land, from the poles to the equator”

‘Connecting People to Nature’, the theme for World Environment Day 2017, implores us to get outdoors and into nature, to appreciate its beauty and its importance, and to take forward the call to protect the Earth that we share.

This year’s theme invites you to think about how we are part of nature and how intimately we depend on it. It challenges us to find fun and exciting ways to experience and cherish this vital relationship.

Everyone is invited to join this free family day at the Festival in Knox Park on 4 June.
