Thursday 19 April 2012: MOBILIZE, unite and celebrate around EARTH DAY

In the lead up to Earth Day 2012 we would like to invite you to join us for an “after work” event for members of the environmental community based in the Geneva area. A series of short film and presentations will be given aimed at sharing and showcasing some of the work being done by a wide range of organisations. We hope that this will be a networking opportunity for environment professionals, often dealing with so many unique issues in an independent way, to be creative about potential synergies.
