World Environment Day Celebrated in Cuba


Cuba celebrated on Tuesday the World Environment Day with several activities, including theoretical events at universities, cleaning, sowing plants in urban communities and reforestation works.

The national event, whose central slogan is “Sustainable energy for everyone,” is to be held until June 22.

A workshop on environmental pollution on June 5-6, sponsored by the Center for Pollution and Atmospheric Chemistry, the Climate Center, attached to the Institute of Meteorology, and the Cuban Meteorological Society, was part of Tuesday’s agenda.

Greenhouse gas inventory, wind energy, analysis of the occurrence of weather phenomena, Saharan dust storms, their impact on cyclogenesis, and the evolution of tropical cyclones in the North Atlantic, are included in the event’s scientific agenda.

At a global level, the UN Development Program chose Brazil this year as the venue of these celebrations. It will be an opportunity to invite people to assess in what areas of everyday life green economy can be applied.

Three weeks from now, Brazil will also be the venue of the Conference on Sustainable Development “Rio+20,” in which world leaders will discuss the design of an environmentally-sustainable future.
