I. Metshin: “These children will protect nature and increase the green beauty”
In Kazan, the city project “Growing
together – Berge usabez” was launched today. As part of the project, tree
seedlings will be planted on the territory of all 320 kindergartens and 166
schools in the city. The Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin joined the environmental
campaign. The head of the city together with the second-graders of gymnasium №75
of the Moskovsky district planted pine trees at school. For two years, students
will take care of the plants. After they get stronger, they will be
transplanted to parks and squares of the city.
Trees were planted today in all schools
and kindergartens of the city – 58,600 pupils of preschools and second graders
planted 2,500 pine and spruce seedlings. The activity is timed to coincide with
the international day for the protection of the ozone layer, which is marked
annually on September 16.
In gymnasium №75, the environmental
campaign began with a nature science lesson for second-graders, where they were
given a diary of a young ecologist with useful environmental information. The
diary is given at the beginning of the year to every second-grader in the city
from 2019. This year 18,472 Kazan pupils received it. Ilsur Metshin visited the
natural science lesson, he asked the children if they
like spending time in nature.
After the theoretical lesson, the
students started to practice. Second-graders were given spades and watering
cans, and together with the Mayor of Kazan, they planted pines on the territory
of the gymnasium.
During the year, students will take part
in activities on growing various trees and learn how to care for seedlings.
