In January, the American Corners began a campaign covering several months leading up to Earth Day, with programs teaching youth on the causes and prevention of wildfires, as well as possible solutions. Along with local partners and representatives of CENN and USDA’s Forest Service, the American Corners are implementing a series of informational sessions and interactive programs for middle and high school students. In February, the campaign will grow into a habitat protection theme, where Georgian youth will learn about protecting parks and the natural habitat of animals. The overall campaign aims to raise awareness about environmental issues among young people, to help them develop a sense of global unity and acknowledge the importance of protecting the environment at a local level.
April 22, 2020, will mark the 50th anniversary of the celebration of Earth Day. At the U.S. Embassy in Tbilisi, we believe Earth Day isn’t just a one-day event, but a daily commitment! We’ve planned an exciting program of diverse activities with a focus on education and the inclusion of youth in making every day “Earth Day.” To follow our activities, just search for #USinGeoEarthDay or go to earthday.org to learn more about how you can join in this worldwide endeavor.
