Since February, 16 is Kurdistan’s Environment Day, CDO’s Community Center of Kalar held a project in partnership with UNHCR. “Today We Begin to Protect the Future” was the slogan of the campaign that contained a number of activities.

The first activity was riding bicycles; all participants and volunteers in the campaign wore special clothes for the event and rode bicycles in the alleys and streets of Kalar Governorate. The goal of this event was disseminating messages such as: protecting the environment is everyone’s duty, when we begin today, we protect the future, and finally to maintain a healthy environment.

The Community Center of Kalar will continue this campaign until April 20. The rest of the activities include: planting seeds, traveling around the region and spread awareness messages for protecting the environment and distribute litterbags to the picnickers in order to keep the region clean after they leave.
