Kick the Habit - World Environment Day 2008 to be Hosted by New Zealand with Focus on Fostering Low-Carbon Economies
http://tinyurl.com/2gt729
Nairobi/Wellington, 1 October 2007 - New Zealand, one of the first countries to pledge a carbon-neutral future, will be the main host of World Environment Day 2008, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) announced today.

The challenge of climate change and threats to polar regions and beyond were spotlighted in Norway as part of World Environment Day (WED) 2007.

The focus of the global 2008 celebrations hosted in New Zealand will be on the solutions and the opportunities for countries, companies and communities to "Kick the habit" and de-carbonize their economies and life-styles.

Each day for just under a week two new chapters will be released. "Business As Unusual in Christchurch" takes you through nine years of Christchurch changes, why they took place, and who helped make these changes happen. It features the stories and a large cast of storytellers.
