Young green patrols in action:

School-based forest units: the tradition existed in Azerbaijan before, now it’s time to restore it and to make it  fi t the contemporary environment.

So far, children have been sensitised to forest protection thanks to the efforts of the Centre of Environmental Education in Baku. Now, a European-supported initiative is aiming to extend their work and to create school-based teams of ‘Young Foresters’.
 
Because the necessity to prevent deforestation and to expand the green topsoil is today a priority in the country, which cannot be met without increasing the population’s environmental education.
 
 
This is part of a series of features on projects funded by the EU’s Regional Programme, prepared by journalists and photographers on the ground or the ENPI Info Centre, available in English, Russian, and Azerbaijani.
