As ENO lays strongly focus on ethical sustainability, we are committed to be honest. Country coordinators and outside observers will make visits to verify tree planting actions at schools and in communities. And of course, results are easily verified when we see trees on the map!
Schools category cover schools under primary and secondary education, students 6-18 years old. So universities and higher education are excluded from this category. But we have youth category for older students under Individuals. Only school members are eligible to plant ( students, teachers, staff and parents). Local communities are welcome to assist with seedlings, planting areas and preparatory work.
In the country category, we sum up the number of trees planted in different countries, see the number of registered schools and relatively biggest percentage of schools per country. The representative of country will be national ENO coordinator or if a new country, school that has planted most trees there.
All the participants will receive ENO Treelympics Certificates. Medals will be given to three best participants in both categories. Top 10 schools will be invited to attend ENO Treelympics Seminar and Award Ceremony, to take place December 2020 in Taiwan.
