Pupils of the junior and senior grade of primary school participated in the workshops held in the mountain house on The Peter‘s Peek. With this workshops, lecturers tried to explain to the students the importance of living in harmony with nature and educate them about the importance of reducing unnecessary consumption of natural resources and the conservation of forests and environment for them and future generations.
After the lecture children were treated with baked chestnuts. Also they painted, drew and with other art techniques gave their vision of the forest and the forest world. As a part of the project, we secured them funding for theirs work together with all supplies and educational material.
