Forests are by far the greatest CO2 cleanser we have on Earth. We encourage schools to examine forests as carbon storage facilities and the importance of reforestation. To promote activities that have a goal of investigating local conditions. Work on activities connected to the use of wood as an energy source and carbon storage.
Children’s attention was drawn to the importance of trees in the environment in a very positive way
