Earth Day


Today was international Earth Day and to celebrate we organized activities in Cabricán’s library. Children in primary school participated in a picture drawing contest, and those in secondary made clothes out of trash. The idea was to foment the practice of throwing trash away in its proper place and to raise awareness of the destruction of the environment. Several people gave speeches, we played videos on global warming and Andrea Pérez (Art Corps), Esben and I were judges of the contests. Unfortunately, I think there was a little to much focus on the contests and not enough on Earth Day, but I have next year to perfect and, on the bright side, Esben who works in the forestry office in the Muni is trying to plan activities for Tree Day on May 22.
