A Message from Children from Eco-Schools


Together with Tegeta Green Planet, the organization Keep Georgia Tidy (KGT) offers pupils to participate in an important environmental activity and take part in the creation of special signs that point our fellow citizens to necessary environmental actions.

The competition was launched on April 7, World Health Day, reminding the public once again that environmental problems are closely related to the health of each of us, and the development of environmental habits is one of the most important conditions for a healthy life.

The rules for participating in the contest are simple: every school student in Georgia who wants to contribute to the creation of a greener and healthier environment should come up with a message on the given work topics that can easily be turned into a road sign. Along with the message, the participant can additionally draw an eco-pupil who will convey environmental messages to others.

For additional ideas and gasping working topics more closely, all participants are invited to visit KGT environmental portal – Ecolog ( and Tegeta-Green Planet (
