BLACK SEA EXHIBITION AND CLEAN UP FOR THE BLACK SEA DAY IN GEORGIA
- November 01, 2022
Before the Black Sea Day, the pupils of the four schools (two in Batumi, one in Poti, and one in Bobokvati) were developing jointly with the marine scientists and artists the artworks devoted to the Black Sea and its inhabitants. In total, 23 artworks were produced. The works showed the Black Sea’s biodiversity and its problems.
At the Black Sea Day (31st October 2022) at State National University named after Shota Rustaveli, the exhibition of the artworks was presented. The marine scientists and visitors highly evaluated the paintings and ideas about the precious Black Sea behind it. The young participants got awarded on behalf of the EU4EMBLAS project: one best artwork from each school and Bluetooth airphones – for the participants.
After the exhibition, there was a mini press conference devoted to the Black Sea Day with the participation of the scientists, who shared the latest data about the state of the Sea.
Later all the participants went to the Black Sea coast (at Chorokhi estuary), where they practically helped the Black Sea by coastal cleanup. In total, 15 large garbage bags were collected as well as other waste.
As a reward for the cleanup, a trip by boat by the Black Sea with practical lessons on marine biodiversity was arranged for the kids.
All the participants were quite happy about such a celebration. There was also a piece of news about this action on the local Batumi TV.
