In an accessible and playful way, children were told about the international experience on waste management and rational use of oceans’ resources. After the official part, games for children and activities on fine arts and modeling of figures from plaster were organized on the Caspian Sea coast.
The event was aimed at increasing the environmental awareness of children and promoting the development of careful attitude towards nature, as well as changing behavior in relation to rational consumption.
