    Countries:Turkey,Romania,Italy,Armenia,North Macedonia,Poland


    Name of the Project:YES,WE CAN


    Topic: Environment


            The project is about identifying the problems that our planet is facing and trying to find solutions to these problems.
    I think that, if we involve our students in saving our planet, they will learn responsibility in their actions and - who knows? - maybe they will become an example to be followed by others.
                The activities in the project will follow two directions: one will involve our kids in real actions, such as collecting plastic bottles and recycling plastic, planting trees etc, and the other direction will be an artistic one, as we would like to create a play related to saving our planet.

    "Label palm oil in cosmetics "

    ( We are literally eating the rainforest! We are washing our hands and hair with the rainforest ,we brush our tooth and we do not know about it. In Europe Palm oil and palm fat speads out at express speed in our food and cosmetics etc.)

    It would be great, if as many as possible owls from all parts of Europe would arrive
