Countdown Begins to World Environment Day 2012 - Preparations Underway in Host Country Brazil

Countdown Begins to World Environment Day 2012 - Preparations Underway in Host Country Brazil

UNEP Goodwill Ambassador Gisele Bündchen will plant the first of 50,000 new trees that will take root to mark WED. Gisele's forest marks the culmination of last year's WED Challenge, where the supermodel and campaigner competed with fellow UNEP Goodwill Ambassador Don Cheadle to mobilize global participation for WED. To mark the Brazilian model's victory in the WED Challenge, a new forest will be planted in her home country. Gisele will also work as a news reporter with Brazilian TV station Globo for the day, covering WED activities. Gisele will join Brazilian Environment Minister Izabella Teixeira, Mayor of Rio de Janeiro Eduardo Paes and UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner for a press conference immediately following the tree-planting.
