The Environmental Education program aims to teach the younger generation how natural environments function, and particularly, how human beings can adapt their behavior to live sustainably in natural ecosystems. In the scope of the program, we involve enthusiastic specialists in the field, who conduct informational lectures on environmental issues, such as carbon emissions, the impact of the food chain, deforestation, etc., and the role of each of us in solving them. The program also aims to promote practical training to enable them to participate efficiently in field works such as seed collection, tree planting, and other activities.
In the scope of our activities (seed program, nurseries, and reforestation) we engage different communities where those programs are implemented. Indeed, the first step is training and raising awareness of environmental issues. In this regard, we organize regular training sessions. Taking into account the employment situation in rural areas, this program is a chance for people to get vocational training in the sphere of reforestation and gives them access to a paying job. In April 2020 we have already hired 17 workers from four communities. During the course of the year, we will implement this program in eight more communities in Lori Province.
