May Momentum: Igniting Climate Action

WBCAT sparks a rallying cry for environmental stewardship. As the world turns its focus to the urgency of climate change, May emerges as a pivotal month for collective action. From Earth Day celebrations, Garden Shows and Plant Sales to World Environment Day preparations, May galvanizes communities, governments, and businesses to step up their commitment to sustainability. It’s a time for planting seeds of change, both metaphorically and literally, as initiatives blossom worldwide. With increased awareness and engagement, May becomes a catalyst for meaningful progress in combating climate change and safeguarding our planet for future generations.
