The 50th edition of Earth Day is celebrated today! Our Earth is in desperate need of action to change human behaviour and create global, national and local policy changes. The fight for a clean environment continues with increasing urgency, as the ravages of climate change become more and more apparent every day.

Visit Wellington invites you to be a part of our Earth Day celebrations. We have put together a bunch of Wellington backgrounds so that you can pretend you’re riding on horseback at one of our farms, tasting wine in one of our producers’ tasting rooms, appreciating our spectacular mountains or strolling through our Main Road.

They are the perfect backdrops for you virtual happy hours during a Zoom or Google Hangout chat.

Whoever you’re meeting virtually, we’re just happy you are practising social distancing and enjoying Wellington’s beauty!
