A school operates as one big family that spends a lot of time in the school building or in the surroundings of it.
An environment rich in biodiversity is inspiring, creates interest and offers the joy of discovering. Creating and keeping such environment makes us feel good and reminds us that we care about the species and the future.
During the collective works we encourage the schools all over Estonia to notice, recognize and create biodiversity. This kind of environment is more alive, diverse and sustainable. Whether it is a school in the countryside or in the city, the students, staff and parents can all together help out and create better conditions for biodiversity.
Once the surroundings of the school are full of nature and life we also encourage you to draw it! Be creative and draw biodiversity, the collective work day and later organize an exhibition! This way the message gets spread further from the school.
Ideas for creating biodiversity:
· Create a species-rich patch of meadow flowers.
· Widen an already existing biodiverse area.
· Build an insect hotel.
· Build flower boxes.
· Leave the works that can reduce biodiversity, undone.
