A meeting focused on the Learning About Forests programme took place at the EuroLife Office in Nicosia on 23 November 2016.
Most of the Teachers involved in the programme gathered from all over Cyprus and were welcomed by their hosts, EuroLife, and greeted by the Commissioner for the Environment and the Representatives of the Ministry of Education and Culture.
The National Operator, Dr Michael Ierides, outlined the programme for the year 2016-2017 and presented the materials from the Forestry Department.
As this year’s LEAF theme is Forest and Water, Mrs Maria Postekki from the Water development Department made a presentation and handed out informational materials for the current theme. Finally, a wonderful booklet of forest activities was distributed to the teachers, which was warmly welcomed!
A competition to create a collage from fallen leaves from a forest was announced, with a prize of an overnight stay in a forest for the whole class, titled “a night in the forest”.
On 28 November 2016 a Press Conference was organised to announce the support of EuroLife to Learning About Forests programme in Cyprus within its Corporate Social Responsibility policy.
