Create your environment

 "Create your environment!" is an educational project initiated by Holcim (Romania) in 2004, in cooperation with CONCEPT Foundation and in partnership with the Ministry of Education, Research and Youth, targeting children in the 3rd – 7th grades. The purpose of the project was to develop a civic environmental protection behavior already at an early age (10-12 years). One of the key components of the project was the development of three sets of educational publications: Educational support for 3rd- 7th graders, Methodological guide for 3rd – 7th grade teacher and a Dictionary of terms that can be used in all grades.

“Create your environment” received many awards: “Best community program of a company”, "Golden Award for Excellence" and "Special Award for Creativity and Research". However, the biggest achievement of the project was the inclusion of the optional subject matters in the national curriculum of primary and secondary school pupils.
