Out of love, respect and appreciation to this blue globe ”planet Earth”, the program celebrated International Earth Day with number of kindergartens that applied My Environment Unit in the past years as well as this year expressing their love and care for the mother earth.
The event was full of various activities for children focusing and stressing on the concept of conserving the Mother Earth resources and our role to carry this mission, these activities came along this year’s slogan of International Earth Day, ”It is your turn to lead”.
It is worth noting that the Unit was launched in 2002, conducted over 60 ToT workshops for 234 teachers. Around 2,632 children benefited from the activities and concepts presented thereto. Testimonies from both parents and teachers ascertain how these children’s views and relations progressed and deepened towards nature and its resources.
