Celebrating Earth Day 2015 17 April 2015

FAO Goodwill Ambassador and American jazz legend Dee Dee Bridgewater will highlight the importance of forests at the annual Concert for the Earth in Italy which takes place this Sunday, 19 April in Rome.

Bridgewater will speak about the need to protect the world’s natural resources and ecosystems before her performance at the concert to mark this year’s Earth Day, which is officially celebrated on 22 April.

Eva Müller, Director of FAO’s Forestry Department, will also underscore the multiple benefits of forests and show this year’s International Day of Forests video spot before Bridgewater takes the stage.

“We are delighted that Dee Dee Bridgewater will perform at the Concert for the Earth to help highlight the critical role of the world’s forests in sustainable development,” Müller said.
