Dubai Municipality sets to celebrate World Environment Day
The Dubai Municipality is readying to celebrate World Environment Day on June 5, with a series of events.

Organised by the United Nations Environment Programme, it will aim to connect people with nature.

Director general of Dubai Municipality, Hussain Nasser Lootah says it’s an important event for Dubai.

“We want all Dubai residents to know about their city’s natural landscape and to cherish it. Our ancestors respected this land and lived in harmony with it, never taking more than what they needed from it. If we do not safeguard the future of Dubai’s natural environments, we will have to answer our coming generations.”
