Tree-Planting Campaign for a Greener City07.12.2018
American High School students from the European School had a desire to participate in a green event and decided to plant trees in order to tackle the growing air pollution problem of our city.
Tbilisi City Hall provided our students with a designated piece of land on the University Street and supplied them with seedlings of Fraxinus, which they planted by themselves.
On Thursday, December 6, 35 our students participated in this event and made their contribution to helping our city become greener.
“It is very important for us to participate in this event. We aim to do our best to take care of the environment, as we all know that currently, air pollution is a burning issue for our country. I believe that even a single tree can make a big difference and joint efforts of our society members is all it takes to save our nature in the long-term”- said an 11th-grader.
“We would be more than happy to get involved in similar activities in the future and hope that more and more people will take this issue seriously” – mentioned the 10th Grade student.
American High school will organize such events in the future, not only in Tbilisi but outside the city as well.
Our school continues raising awareness about the importance of a clean environment and is determined to help its students feel responsible for the ecological problems from an early age.
