The event included tree planting at the school orchard and demonstration of composting technology to promote a zero-waste culture and increase public awareness on the importance of composting among schoolchildren.
“…Today’s event is our contribution to the country’s commitments to increase the percentage of tree-planted areas in Armenia. And by assigning the schoolchildren as care takers, we hope that the planted orchard will be duly maintained” – Ms. Natia Natsvlishvili mentioned during her speech.
The ISSD NGO trainers conducted a masterclass for the guests and schoolchildren on composting and explained its importance for the environment.
During the event the schoolchildren of the educational complex were assigned trees planted in the name of guests and received symbolic passports to record any activities they performed to take care of the trees.
