Celebrate World Environment Day at the Most Beautiful Places in America

You don't have to travel too far to see some amazing places

World Environment Day is a global celebration and opportunity to raise awareness about protecting the environment. Organized by the United Nation’s Environment Programme, World Environment Day is held annually on June 5th, and each year features a different theme and host country. The 2016 World Environment Day is hosted by Angola and the theme focuses on illegal wildlife trade.

Across the world, people will be taking part in various actions to help protect and conserve the environment. Check the calendar of events to find one nearby, or organize one yourself! You can even vote online to name a Giant Sable, a critically endangered type of antelope, that rangers will be tracking as part of conservation efforts.

Many individuals and local authorities have already jumped on the opportunity to remind users to drive safely. There are even signs popping up on highways to encourage safer driving.

Luckily, there are tools out there to help the tech-obsessed (or the poke-obsessed) improve their driving. One of our favorites is an app called TrueMotion Family! The app analyzes your driving in order to provide you with a score - and insights as to how you drive. It's perfect for parents who want to monitor their teen drivers. The app gives parents the power to see where their kids drive, and produces a 'report card' on their driving in addition to an assessment of whether they were driving distracted (using their cell phone). Plus, families have access to roadside assistance on-demand from right within the TrueMotion app.

I don’t remember Ash, Misty, or Brock driving cars in their quest to be the very best, like no one ever was. And there aren’t vehicles any in PokemonGO. At Urgent.ly, we love the game and just like you, we’re prepared to travel across the land searching far and wide to catch 'em all, but we encourage you to put safety first in your travels! Remember that the power of Pokemon is awesome in augmented reality but automobiles are a powerful tool meant for use in the real world and require optimum focus to operate safely. In a world we must defend, you can start by driving safely, and catch and train ‘em all when you’re not operating a vehicle.
