Award Ceremony of the "Learning about Forests - LEAF" program


The award ceremony of the “Learning about Forests - LEAF” program took place at Germasogeia Primary School in Limassol on Wednesday, June 5, 2019.

During the ceremony, awards were presented to schools and children that engaged in environmental activities, particularly on forest-related matters through the Analytical Program of Environmental Education and Sustainable Development. The program is part of the “Learning about Forests - LEAF” global program.

During the 2018-2019 school year, more than 80 primary schools throughout Cyprus participated in the “Learning about Forests – LEAF” program. As part of the program, a competition was held for the creation of a video on the forests of Cyprus. Kryfo Sholeio primary school and Evangelismos special school shared the first prize. Students of awarded classes won backpacks complete with all the necessary equipment for exploring forests.

Following the award part of the ceremony, students played “The Treasure of Nature” floor game which won the competition last year.

The Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) is responsible for the “Learning about Forests - LEAF” program on a global level, and CYMEPA is the National Operator of all its programs. Training programs are carried out in cooperation with competent officials of the Ministry of Education and Culture.

The “Learning about Forests” program is an especially important pillar of EuroLife’s Corporate Social Responsibility program, which ensures that such sponsorships present our fellow citizens with the necessary tools and means they need for a better quality of life and health at all levels of healthy eating, exercise, and love for nature and the environment.

Because prevention is not a figure of speech. It’s a way of life!
