World Bicycle Day in Geneva
On June 3, 2018, within the framework of the World Bicycle Day, the Permanent Mission of Turkmenistan to the UN Office in Geneva organized a bike ride.
The start of the bike ride was annonced by the Permanent Representative of Turkmenistan to the United Nations Office in Geneva, Ambassador A. Haljanov in the very center of Geneva on the Place des Nations, which adjoins the UN Headquarters in Geneva. The sports event was attended by members of the diplomatic corps, as well as residents of Geneva and its environs. Noteworthy was the fact that the event aroused great interest among the youth. So the participants, as a public action, supported this initiative of Turkmenistan, which was established by the UN GA Resolution A / RES / 72/272, by spreading a hash tag in social networks # June3WorldBicycleDay. Thus, the participants expressed their solidarity with the need to make efforts to protect the environment, and at the same time reaffirmed commitment to the principles of healthy lifestyles, which fully corresponds to the goals of Sustainable Development and the vector of state policy initiated by Esteemed President of Turkmenistan.
