The project aims at enlightening secondary schools students on environmental issues from the very early ages, increase their theoretical and practical knowledge in this sphere, promote environmentally friendly behaviour among them and establish a pool of “Green Trainers and Green Volunteers” in the regions. The first phase of the “IDEA for Green Azerbaijan” project will cover 20 cities around Azerbaijan and will take place in September-October, 2012.
