BULACHAURI , Georgia – U.S. Ambassador John Bass celebrated Earth Day by planting trees with schoolchildren and community members at Bulachauri Public School on April 22, 2012 at 12:00 p.m. Children from eight schools from Imereti, Kakheti and Borjomi spent the morning learning about green energy and climate change adaptation at the CENN Green Center in Bulachauri before joining the Ambassador for a presentation of certificates and tree planting.
The Earth Day event was sponsored by USAID’s Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Mitigation (CCADM) project, which works with 30 schools in six municipalities in three regions of Georgia. The project is implementing activities in these municipalities to focus on climate change adaptation, natural disaster risk reduction, and the development of nurseries.
