Planting trees instread of letting up luftballoons at a graduation ceremony

The class 12.c. of a secondary school in Budapest will plant trees to celebrate their graduation instead of letting up balloons. In the scope of our programme 'TreeDependent - Responsible events, responsible travel' we will plant trees tigether with these students in school orchards in the Budapest disctrict where their school is situated.

The class decided to choose the option of planting trees because they wanted to stop the harmful practice of letting up balloons that can be dangerous to animals and creates waste.

The students of the class are really excited about the idea of tree planting since they are concerned about the issue of climate change. They have taken steps within the school as well, such as preparing brochures about environmental problems and performing a dance about the death of bees at the school leaver's ball. Some of them also participated at climate strikes of the 'Fridays for Future' movement. They believe that showing a good example to members of their generation is extremely important nowadays. They hope that other classes may also turn to tree planting in the future at their closing ceremony.
