Fête de la Nature
17th May - 21st May
Fête de la Nature
The nationwide environmental initiative to engage citizens of all ages will take place from Wednesday 17th to Sunday 21st May. The annual Fête de la Nature is now into its 11th year, and the theme for 2017 will be nature’s super-powers.
Ecosystems and species showcase incredible adaptations, strategies and survival mechanisms in this rapidly changing environment. They play a significant role in energy, food and climate regulation, not to mention providing solutions to many of man’s daily obstacles. Economically, physically and psychologically, nature deserves our attention, and respect!
