ENO Tree Planting day
The ENO programme organised a tree planting event 21st of September 2005. This project was to celebrate the new school year and the international day for peace. The ENO Programme started the new school year in a special way. We planted trees at midday, in every corner of the world. The first trees were planted at midday in Oceania. Following the Sun, new trees were put to earth in Asia, Europe and Africa. Finally this chain of trees reached Americas. This event has become a success. This year over 500 schools in 82 countries planted over 20 000 trees. The date was 21st of September, also known as the international day for peace. This project logo is a kite. It symbolizes challenges in learning as well as freedom and equality in learning, despite boundaries.

Planting trees as well as other concrete actions for the environment are good ways to co-operate with schools, especially in the developing countries. This project – ENO tree planting day - is the main idea is to lay emphasis on the local environment and to see it in a global aspect: act locally - think globally. And we think that this project learn love the nature. We think this day gives us the lesson that trees are our nature. And when we plant a tree we show how important is the nature for as. In this project we take part too. We planted the tree and sang a special song, it was very funny and interesting. When now we look we that tree we feel better because we have plant it.
