The activity week was a great success.
All 503 children from 9 schools took part and collected 5339 Green Footprints.
They worte us a letter (pdf, kb).
Beside the Green Footprints, the issue sustainability was discussed in the school lessons.
They send question to us local politicians, e. g.:
• My parents own a forest area. Is it forbidden to clear the forest?
• When a municipality want to build new living houses and some of them need to be build in a forest area, is that allowed?
Thank you very much for this campaign!
