The Ministry of Natural Resources will provide support for the All-Russian Children's Environmental Forum, which will take place in Chelyabinsk on October 19-20. The event is organized by the Compass Foundation, with which the ministry signed an agreement on cooperation within the framework of the Ecology national project.
“The capital of the Southern Urals will host 2.5 thousand schoolchildren from 18 regions of the country. These are the authors of scientific and applied developments in the field of ecology, winners of specialized Olympiads, participants in eco-projects, volunteers,” says a message on the website of the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources.
The goals of the children's eco-forum are to foster a caring attitude towards nature and to form a personnel system for the industry.
In addition, in accordance with the agreement, the Compass Foundation will participate in activities aimed at restoring rare and endangered wildlife, as well as developing ecotourism and environmental education.
“The environmental agenda in our country today comes first. The state is taking decisive, systematic steps in all its areas: from the conservation of forests, water bodies and air purity to the sphere of waste processing and rational use of natural resources. There are many tasks, and it is important that today public organizations, people, and civil society are also included in the environmental agenda. The Compass Foundation is one of the active participants in the state’s “green” policy,” the message quotes the words of the head of the Ministry of Natural Resources, Alexander Kozlov.
