ENO Programme invites you to an exciting event. Our school year will be opened in a special way. We will plant trees at midday, in every corner of the world. The first trees will be planted at noon in Oceania. Following the Sun, new trees will be put to earth in Asia, Europe and Africa. Finally this chain of trees will reach Americas. Globe has turned on its axis.
Trees will be planted on September 21st. This day is also known as an International Day for Peace by United Nations. We ask schools to plant only indigenous species.
Tree planting is important for us. Firstly, it reminds us of the nature and the importance of environmental protection. Secondly, it is a symbol for peace. This event has become a success. In September 2008 about 2000 schools in 122 countries planted 300 000 trees around ENO Tree Planting Day. Our aim is to get 10 000 schools in 160 countries.
We also have other activities for this day. Play our special play for the occasion (translated into over 40 languages!), sing our tree planting song, dance and celebrate.
