(CNA)– More than 100 school children from the Youth Eco Clubs in Borjomi, Akhaldaba, Tsaghveri and Akhaltsikhe will take part in an Earth Day campaign this year.

The young people will plant maples, limber and pine-trees in the yards of their schools and will take care of the trees with assistance from professional plant growers.

The campaign is 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.

A week-long campaign will bring together six Youth Eco Clubs established with assistance from UNDP, and teachers and parents of the school children.

The Earth Day events will go on from 17 to 23 April:

19 April – tree planting in the Borjomi public school #4

Representatives of UNDP, the Ministry of Environment Protection of Georgia, Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia and the local governance in Borjomi will join school children on 23 April in Akhaldaba.

The Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on 22 April all over the world to support environment protection and green solution in economy and everyday life.
