On 12 September cross-border cooperation Project “Promoting nature education as efficient mean of awareness raising” (People with nature) held an information session devoted to the European Cooperation Day 2014. This info-activity became a part of big project event in Pskov, Russia, - Final Conference of the Project and took place during the opening of the Exhibition of schoolchildren’s creative works prepared for the international competition which lasted for over a year.

The participants of the event attended the exhibition arranged in one of the ancient towers of Pskov Kremlin to observe the best creative works of schoolchildren from Latvia, Estonia and Russia, who made photos, created posters and worked out leaflets aiming to attract the attention of their peers and grown-ups to preservation of nature and ideas of green-living. Colourful photos and leaflets were printed by the organizers and will be offered to the visitors of the exhibition as original post-cards and hand-outs during its work as well as ECDay cards and leaflets.

The project takes part in the European Cooperation Day information campaign already for the second time, as cooperation between three countries is very important for the project work. That is why the guests of the exhibition were informed not only about the outcomes of the international competition but as well about the added value of cooperation for the young participants of the project, representatives of educational and nature protection institutions and inhabitants of bordering regions.
