The environmental educational project is implemented by Caspian Pipeline Consortium-R, Utrish State Natural Park and Krasnodar Krai NGO "World without Borders". The program includes the purchase of equipment needed by the unique natural park, publication of scientific and educational scientific materials, and environmental awareness events for students and teachers of secondary and higher educational institutions and pre-schools in Novorossiysk and Anapa.
An educational campaign "Along the natural park trails," including natural park guided tours for student-volunteers and teachers of educational institutions will be held during the first stage. The second stage will start with the environmental awareness campaign "We vote for a green planet!”. Volunteers will hold clean-up days to remove litter and plant trees and shrubs. Afterwards there will be open lessons for schoolchildren and preschoolers titled "Briefly about important things. Let's preserve the nature of our homeland together".
The program also includes creativity contests "What I know about the region's nature reserves" and "Attention! Turtle". The best artworks will be displayed at the exhibition, and all contestants will receive gifts. The results of the environmental educational project will be announced in December 2022 at the gala concert "CPC - Utrish - Novorossiysk".
