Medvednica Reforestation Action

On March 19th our students along with their parents and teachers jointly took part in the Medvednica Nature Park Reforestation Action organised on the occasion of the tenth, jubilee Earth Hour 2016. Reforestation Action is organized by the Public institution "Nature Park Medvednica" that our school made an Agreement on Cooperation with in order to establish the Volunteer Program for our MYP students.

After morning gathering at the valley station of the Sljeme cable car and listening to the guidelines we started to plant the seedlings of oak and fruit trees in the forests of the Bliznec zone that was damaged last year by eight storms and an ice break.

Since the turnout was amazingly good, we managed to plant all the provided seedlings that would hopefully recover Medvednica forest ecosystem. It was great to see so many people united and engaged in this action and to see what we together could do in a single day. After the reforestation action we took one-hour hike along the Bikcevic trail enjoying the sunny weather.

This Saturday morning of joy and excitement has resulted with the rewarding conclusion: Building a better future for ourselves depends on the actions we take every day.
