Under this project, participants have made a modest contribution to the restoration of the ecosystem and the preservation of environment – they have planted trees on the territory of the embassy. As the event was is designed to young Ukrainians, much attention was paid to teach children to respect the nature. The participants have stressed that it is extremely important to appreciate and preserve the green treasure of our planet. Everyone has put their blood and sweat into a common cause so that the whole world can benefit.
“Global climate change is one of the most menacing environmental problems of the present. In order to stop this phenomenon and restore the ecosystem, we must act vigorously. Environmental awareness and the desire to improve the global environmental situation are very important, because we do not just contribute to the nature, we also help ourselves. Trees clean the air, mitigate the climate change, and promote biodiversity. Every tree is a contribution to the future of our next generations and our planet. We are sincerely glad to join the project “Greening the planet”. We have to be aware of the ecological future,”said Alina Belikova, Third Secretary of Ukrainian Embassy in the Republic of Bulgaria and a co-organizer of the project in Bulgaria.
