World Environment Day 2014

In June 2014, OELO hosted its first annual World Environment Day Showcase at C.E.S. middle school in Lambaréné. A mural of protected species was commissioned with a local artist and unveiled at the event on one of the classroom walls. Nature clubs from 5 participating schools presented sketches, dances, and poetry with the mural as a backdrop. A panel of local judges including the Sous-Prefet, the Mayor, the School Superintendent, and the Attorney General of Moyen-Ogooué province voted on the best presentation. The winning club, from Notre Dame de l'Ogooué, won an overnight field trip to Tsam Tsam ecotourism site. The event was a great success with over 300 participating students and hundreds of community members in attendance. All the clubs participating won school supplies and environmentally themed prizes.
