World Environment Day

We celebrated World Environment  Day at Central Park in Setia Alam today.



The theme which I find to be really appropriate for the day is "Cycling towards a Green Future".


We were entertained with cycling stunts.


As many as 200 bicycles were awarded to schools and also to winners of various campaigns by our developer, Setia.

We were fortunate to receive 2 new bicycles as a gesture of gratitude from Setia for assisting them in some community work.


Fitness instructors were invited to guide the cyclists in some fun, warm up exercises before the cycling journey began.


Children were provided with acrylic paint and stones to release their energy and creativity.
There were quite a few other activities as well.


Local food with Starbucks Coffee and muffins were served.


I wonder how you celebrate World Environment Day.

  1. What a beautiful way to celebrate the environment! I'm going to go to British Columbia, where I was born and spent most of my life, and I am going to hug a tree.

  10. No World Environment Day celebration locally that I know of. I did spend the morning at a weekend market that sells plants, organic produce and homemade food products. The rest of the afternoon was spent alternating between a blog crawl to catch up on posts I missed while on a plant chase and time in my garden repotting plants.

  11. There is also no such celebration here in our local community. Or maybe I just didn't know :)

    This is a good cause. I hope it gets celebrated all over the world like mother's day.
