Jane Goodall and ENO Tree Planting Day

I am happy to share this wonderful quote for ENO Tree Planting Day. It comes from Dr Jane Goodall, a member of ENO Mothers Network.

Quote from Jane


As you plant your tree imagine it growing towards the sun, symbolizing energy, endurance, hope and love.

Give it a little kiss, sending your own strength into the living tree so that it can carry a message of love and share it with the birds and the stars.

Dr. Jane Goodall DBE
Founder – the Jane Goodall Institute
& UN Messenger of Peace

Tree planting day in Costa Rica

Comments from schools in Costa Rica.

School La Tigra:

"We will plant trees as part of the biological corridor that unites Costa Rica and Nicaragua. This will give this activity further content. Some parents and institutional leaders will also participate with us. The Tigra School is part of an environmental education program promoted by the Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) in Costa Rica. This proyect will become part of OTS's La Selva Biological Station - Childrens Challenge proyect, where children can gain points for their schools by participating in environmental awareness activities. These points will later become much needed prizes for their schools, which have little resources. Paper, books, pencils even paint may be their prize."

La Trinidad:"Trinidad is a small, local, public school. The interest of the children in environmental topics is unbelievable. This school has their own reforestation proyect and the kids cut the grass with machetes under rain or shine. They are admirable. We are proud to participate in this event, you can count on seeing these trees grow."

Each family will plant a tree at school in Slovenia!

ENO teacher Darinka Orel sent an excellent idea for our tree planting day. Her school OS Polhov Gradec, Slovenia (SI05) is working on the idea, that each family plants a tree for its child. That will be a lime-tree which is a national tree in Slovenia. Parents will get it for a symbolic prize in school. So, beside 6 trees that we are going to plant in school, we will probably plant more than 200 trees! "This is our goal and we hope to succeed, but I will tell you the exact number of trees after the event."

Youth in Kurdistan wants peace!

Kirkuk Youth group
in Kurdistan will plant 100 trees to celebrate our tree planting day. According to their registration: "Kirkuk Youth group wants to show the world that Kirkuk's people looking for peace."
