Daddy you can save the planet! Now in Arabic, Chinese, Russian and Spanish

Published:20 February 2009

Geneva

Ján Kubiš, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), presented today the Arabic, Chinese, Russian and Spanish versions of the colouring book Daddy you can save the planet! first released in English and French by UNECE in 2007.
 
This colouring book aims at raising children’s, and their parents’, awareness about all those little gestures that can have a big influence in limiting the impact of our daily activities on the environment: recycling paper, avoiding wasting water, switching off the light when leaving a room, using a bicycle instead of a car, etc.

The launch of Daddy you can save the planet! in an additional four official United Nations languages constitutes a further step in UNECE’s initiatives to contribute to mitigating climate change and ensuring environmental sustainability, one of the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2000.

Daddy you can save the planet! is distributed worldwide via the United Nations Publications Sales and Marketing network, and the UN Bookshops in New York and Geneva.
