Tucson to host major Earth Day event

Posted: Updated:

Tucson has been chosen as one of ten U.S. cities that will host a major event on Earth Day 2009, as part of the National Conversation on Climate Action. On Earth Day, April 22, Tucson will host a "Spotlight Conversation" as part of an elite group that will be highlighted nationally and receive extensive support in even planning and promotion.

"We look forward to supporting Tucson's Spotlight Conversation event on Earth Day," said Michelle Wyman, Executive Director of ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability USA. "This will be an opportunity for Tucson to advance their local climate protection goals and feed into a crucial national dialogue on the imperative of local climate action."
