Bayer and World Environment Day

Bayer is a longtime partner of the United Nations Environment Programme both here in North America and globally.

Today, together, Bayer and the UNEP have organized over a dozen environmental projects for young people around the world, including:

Here in North America, Bayer is especially proud of its partnership with UNEP’s Regional Office for North America based in Washington, D.C. Once again, this year and for the sixth consecutive year, Bayer will sponsor the youth programs for World Environment Day (WED) in North America. Bayer’s WED youth events include the opening of a special exhibition of the International Children’s Painting Competition (ICPC), an awards ceremony for ICPC North American and regional host city winners and an interactive environmental workshop for local high school students led by Dr. Mae C. Jemison.
