Disappointed that High Park is closed to visitors this year while the cherry trees are in bloom? No need to worry:  the city has multiple virtual cherry blossom experiences planned so that you can enjoy the view from home. There’s even a 24-hour BloomCam so that you can check in on the blossoming trees any time!

Here’s some great news for the environment: Sweden has closed its last coal-fired power station two years ahead of schedule. This is a huge clean energy milestone for Sweden, as they continue to work towards a system based entirely on recycled and renewable energy. Hopefully one day we’ll all get there!
