United Nations picks Pittsburgh to host World Environment Day in 2010

diverseearthIn what may be the first tangible proof that the G-20 did, in fact, lead to international exposure and opportunity for the Pittsburgh region, the United Nations announced Thursday that the Steel City will play host to World Environment Day in 2010.

Scheduled for June 5, World Environment Day was created by the UN Environment Programme in 1972 to stimulate environmental awareness and action. The theme for 2010 is “Biodiversity: Connecting with Nature.”

How cool is that?
