The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in partnership with the United Nations Office at Geneva, the Permanent Mission of New Zealand to the United Nations in Geneva and the Race for Water Foundation have the honour to invite you to the World Environment Day (WED) Event in Geneva: Biking in Solidarity with Small Island Developing States Bains des Pâquis, Quai du Mont-Blanc 30, located on Lake Geneva on Wednesday, 4 June 2014 at 5 pm. In support of the UN`s designation of 2014 as the International Year of Small Island Developing States (SIDS), the WED 2014 emphasizes the threats of climate change such as rising sea levels for SIDS around the world. This year’s slogan “Raise your voice, not the sea level” asks for the galvanization of individual actions into a collective force for generating a positive impact on the planet. Therefore, in solidarity with threatened SIDS: We are calling for UN high officials, Ambassadors and civil society representatives to donate their time, willingness and biking skills At the Bains des Pâquis, three stationary bicycles will be connected to interactive displays. As the UN high officials and Ambassadors are biking, mounted screens will show corresponding decrease in sea levels. These energetic and committed efforts to help SIDS will be recorded on video and will be available for publishing on your respective Agencies’ and Embassies’ online platforms for the official World Environment Day on 5 June. A light cocktail will be offered following the event. The event will serve to increase public awareness about the impacts of climate change and the associated sea level rise affecting Small Island Developing States.

A la veille de la Journée Mondiale de l’Environnement, les Genevois et Genevoise sont invités à venir pédaler le long du lac Léman en solidarité avec les petits états insulaires et ainsi contribuer à la préservation de l’eau et de l’environnement. C’est dans ce cadre qu’Anne-Cécile Turner, Directrice de la Fondation Race for Water était le “Grand Invité” du 26 mai dernier dans l’émission de Lynne Mabillon diffusée sur Radio Cité Genève.
