World Health Day: make it the first of many more at this UN City event this Friday
Friday is World Health Day, so not ideal timing if your office is holding a bar event or you’re treating yourself to a night off the cooking with a highly calorific takeaway.
So maybe consider the UN City event ‘docUNight: Green City Life / La Belle Ville’ as an incentive to tread the narrow line and wake up on Saturday with a clear head for a change.
And, of course, you’ll be so much better informed about how we can build greener, cleaner cities that combine the benefits of both our natural and urban worlds.
From 15:30 meet like-minded individuals over drinks at the UN City Café ahead of a welcome (16:30), screening of the 85-minute film ‘Green City Life’ (16:38) and panel discussion (18:05) co-organsed by the WHO, which is celebrating its 75th year in 2023.
Among the topics up for discussion are revegetation, urban farming, and bio-waste recovery. The event is scheduled to end at 19:00.
Attendance is free, but you are best advised to bring a valid photo ID to access the event. Find out more via this link.
