World Environment Day 2015
The U.S. Embassy organized a half-day workshop for students from 20 public preparatory schools in Addis who are involved in their schools’ environmental protection clubs and mini-media clubs on the importance of environmental awareness and protection. The guest of honors, Film producer Amleset Muchie and artist Teddy Afro delivered opening remarks. The students viewed Arengwade Meret, a documentary film produced by Amleset Muchie, and then discussed how they can help improve their school environment through their clubs. A small grant competition was also announced whereby students can design an environmentally-focused project to help their communities.
