Leaders for The Way to Happiness Association of Tennessee (TWTH-TN) have announced a neighborhood cleanup event for World Environment Day. The cleanup has been dubbed “Green It Up,” as part of an ongoing campaign by the organization to make the city of Nashville greener with less litter.
In 2016, TWTH-TN invited environmental activists and leaders to a roundtable discussion in observance of World Environment Day under the heading “It’s Your City – Green It Up.” This year, organizers are taking this message to the streets.
The “Green It Up” cleanup will take place on June 3rd at 10am. Volunteers will meet in the community hall of the Church of Scientology for cleanup supplies and refreshments.
The Way to Happiness Association wants the Green It Up campaign to bring people together who care about the environment so they can connect and can do bigger things. TWTH was formed around the book The Way To Happiness, written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard, which has twenty-one precepts based on the fact that one’s survival depends on the survival of others. One of these precepts is “Safeguard and Improve the Environment,” which takes to heart the care for the planet.
World Environment Day occurs each year on June 5th and is celebrated by the United Nations. According to unep.org, World Environment Day “…has grown to be a broad, global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated by stakeholders in over 100 countries. It also serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something positive for the environment, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.”
