The academy took place on the 15th of November in Plaisence. The day started early in the morning at 7 a.m. 75 children from 5 schools attended the academy together with some parents and teachers.

The day started with a small mediation. After the mediation the children heard about Plant-for-the-Planet, Felix Finkbeiner and the project. Now it was time for a breakfast. Strengthen the children were on their way to plant over 750 seedlings in different gardens. The children had a lot of fun and enjoyed the planting.

Back in the St. Montfort school lunch was waiting for the children. After the tasty meal the children discussed about the pollution of the environment, the pollution of the air and the needfulness of the trees. The children asked many question and said their opinion.
