Young explorers

EarthVoice Romania celebrated the International Day of Biodiversity 2010 with Kindergartens (17 preschool units) of Bucharest. A variety of activities was organised in Bucharest, between 22nd of May and 5th of June, in protected areas (Botanical Garden) and near the Kindergartens. The children expressed their affection for the plants and the environment by artistical events (songs, dances or just fashion show) or by practical activities such as fitting out the gardens around the kindergartens or delivering paper or plastics for recycling.


From the participating experts, they also learned about the plant species in the kindergarten yards. Even if they did not discover any new species for science, it was an opportunity to find and identify the diversity of plant species of their kindergarten yards.


Knowing that the children are too young to fully understand individual plant or/and animal species, they demonstrated their knowledge about Earth’s biodiversity and their solutions for its conservation by songs, dances or fashion shows (with materials for recycling, such as paper, plastics, metals, etc.): “The world kids recycling”, “The kids conserve a forest”, “The kids preserve Earth”, "The kids and flowers" etc:


  • Kids from Kindergartens No. 7 and 8 “Licurici”, No. 216 and 201 “Clopotel” and No. 271 expressed their affection for the environment in Bucharest Botanical Garden, by reusing paper for making new toys, recycling plastic and planting trees.
  • Kids from Kindergartens No. 166 “Panseluta”, No. 201 “Clopotel” and No. 271 learned from experts about plant species in Bucharest Botanical Garden and their kindergarten yards.
  • Kids from Kindergartens No. 35, 218 and 269 demonstrated their knowledge about Earth’s biodiversity by songs, dances or shows.
