School children and their teachers and parents are planted trees in the yard of the Akhaldaba public on April 23, to celebrate Earth Day and show support to environment protection.

Representatives of the Ministry of Environment Protection and the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia, local governance and the United Nations Development Programme joined the Akhaldaba children throughout a day.

The school-greening in Akhaldaba wrapped the Earth Day campaign which brought together more than 100 school children from the Youth Eco Clubs in Borjomi, Akhaldaba, Tsaghveri and Akhaltsikhe.

Maples, limber and pine-trees planted in the yards of the schools and kindergartens were provided by the local nurseries. The Eco Clubs will receive qualified help from professional plant growers to take care of the trees in the future.

The campaign was organised by the United Nations Development Programme and the Ministry of Environment Protection of Georgia as part of the initiative to promote environmental education in schools.
