treecoursecz2On Saturday, October 22, 2011 the area around the playground Antivandal in Dobříš revived.All morning, the local residents with children and volunteers from Hnuti Brontosaurus were planting trees there. Once the planted shrubs and trees grow, they will prevent children from running to the road and the whole playground will get cosier.

Throughout the whole weekend 21 - 23 October 2011, Hnuti Brontosaurus organised another volunteering weekend in Dobříš, Czech Republic focusing on trees - Tree Course ‘To like trees is not enough'. The participants tried not only planting of trees, but also learned many interesting things about trees from culture, history and also practical information about preparation and realization of their own tree planting activity in the future.

A fifth of the world's forest cover exists in Russia, and is under acute threat from illegal logging. Bravely taking us through his working days, former forestry worker turned illegal timber hauler Vasiliy Morozov exposes just how widespread corruption in the forest sector is, how it undermines legislation, and enables the decimation huge swathes of old growth boreal forest with the perpetrators going largely unpunished.The film follows the entire supply chain - from the forest to a processing plant in China - and will give you a glimpse into what is happening to the trees of Russia's boreal forests, forests not inaccurately called one of the earth's lungs.

We invite you to join us in marking the international year of the forest for an evening of film, spoken word and cups of SiberianForest Tea. Join us in learning about the plight of the Siberianboreal forest. This "evening in the forests" is part of a European-wide project with activities taking place in Czech Republic, Albania, Finland, Russia and Portugal, and we at Look East Wild Earth would be honoured for you to attend the UK's offering.

school_action_1As part of the Forest Campaign in Portugal, two school actions were organised. The first one took place on 28 October 2011 in Avintes, Vila Nova de Gaia. One OPE lecturer and volunteers visited school's forest club and gave a brief lesson about the forests in a non-formal way. The lesson started with a game about the importance of biodiversity protection and the role of the forest in this network. Then, the group assisted a short movie and took part in a challenging quest about it. The activity ended with another game about essential Portuguese indigenous forest species.
On 21st, 23rd, 24th and 25th November 2011, another Ecoclub organised school action ‘Lecture & Movie Screening' in Ovar. The activities were the same as during the first school action and there were around 80 participants present. As part of this school action, the students also made a clean up of the local area.

albania_world_2_bigOn the World Habitat Day, October the 6th, EDEN Center transmitted the awareness message for the protection of forests. This initiative is a continuation of a series of activities taking place within the Forest Campaign, supported by the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe. The place that was chosen for this activity was at the hills of the Tirana Grand lake Park, one of the few green places in the capital. This park is the lungs of the capital and offers the citizens the opportunity to spend relaxing hours near the nature around.

albania_world_1_bigDuring the morning hours of this day the volunteers of the EDEN center distributed the forest campaign raising awareness materials with the message for the forest protection and so automatically the protection of habitats. The awareness activity was done in the form of small conversations with the general public visiting the park that morning. On one of the benches, EDEN volunteers and also the interested public were painting and then distributing cotton bags as an alternative to reduce the usage of plastic bags in Albania which is a serious problem for the habitats.

We still have time and energy to think about the future of the Earth, since the desire to spend relaxing hours near forest belongs not only to us but to our children as well.
