Protecting the Forests in Paphos, Cyprus

On 15th April the 2nd Primary School of Yeroskipou in cooperation with the 9th Primary School of Paphos organised a workshop with the theme “Protecting the Forests”. The location chosen for this venue was the forest of Pikni in Paphos where children had the opportunity to learn about forests, the benefits and threats as well as the laws and measures being taken to protect them.

A representative of the Forest Department gave a speech to the children before they then took part in different activities and games organised around 7 stations. The aim of these stations was to allow the children to acquire further knowledge on the importance of trees and forests by playing outside and enjoying nature. CYMEPA coordinated the event with sponsorship from KEAN Ltd who provided transportation and fresh juice for the all children.
