In light of World Environment Day (WED), Canada, the global host country for WED2017, co-hosted a reception with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) at the United Nation agency's Montreal headquarters to celebrate the theme of Connecting People to Nature.

Speaking at the event, Fang Liu, secretary general, ICAO, noted, "Aviation provides incomparable global tourism connectivity to protected areas all over the world."

Liu further stated that tourists choosing to visit national parks are often eco-oriented and concerned with the environmental impact of their travel, including their CO2 footprint, adding that ICAO, its member states, and the aviation industry are working together to address this issue through many of our ongoing programmes.
