Rustavi American Corner hostes the Access Program Enrichment Activity on Environmental Issues

Georgia | English Access Microscholarship Program | 12 Dec 2012

On December 12, Rustavi American Corner hosted the Access Program enrichment activity on Environmental Issues. Ms. Sherry L. Wilson, guest speaker from the U.S. Embassy, lead the session and delivered a seminar on environmental problems, prevention of ecological catastrophes and ways of caring about ecology. The presentation was enriched with photo and video materials and allowed for active student participation.

Students showed particular interest in the topics of waste management and replacing of plastic bags and bottles with environmentally safe materials. During the discussion, students underlined the importance of raising public awareness about environmental issues and promoting volunteerism among the youth, so that they are willing to clean waste disposal areas, plant trees, collect and recycle plastic bags and bottles.

Access students shared stories of the volunteer environment protection work they had done in their schools and their communities and expressed readiness to engage in similar types of activities in the future.
