ENO Tree Planters has received an opportunity to join a high level forum with their opinions!

The Koli Forum on “Natural Resources – Solutions to Questions of Renewable Energy and the Mitigation of Climate Change” takes place from 22-24 October 2009.

Hi from Mauritius

Hello everybody
We are from Ecole du Centre, Saint Pierre, MAURITIUS (Indian Ocean). All the students and teachers gathered together to celebrate this great event. Three endemic trees (Aphloia theiformis, Begonia salaziensis, Dracaena concinna) were planted in the school playground by a class of 11 years old students. The tree planting exercise helped our students understand the importance of our beautiful Mauritian flora and lead them to a greater appreciation of the importance of our environnement in our lives.

Our dear  friends.

We are TR02 Hilal Necmiye Primary School from ─░zmir, Turkey. We celebrated the event with a little delay this year because of our holiday season for the Ramadan Festival. We celebrated the day on October 9th with a great participation of local authorities, TV stations and reporters, our new children and babies, our teachers, environment foundations. We were about 50 people on a erosion field near Bornova, the place we lived, in ─░zmir.  It was really great. The same night we had our place in a TV program and the other day lots of newspapers again. We planted over 300 trees this year and total amount of the trees we planted recently in 5 years to the number of 13.000. We are very happy. And we also very happy to be a part of ENO family.
