This year we conducted the Environment Diary program amidst the COVID –Pandemic situation. Even though we conducted subprograms and contests in the previous year’s unfortunately we could only conduct the writing the diaries of the year 2020.

Introduction of the project to the school children


The staff members of Green Cross Sri Lanka visited the schools which were selected in the month of September to introduce the Green Lane Diary competition and explained the procedure on how and what to write on the distributed diaries. A total of 4383 books were distributed to the schools. After the students had finished writing, we were notified on the 28th October 2020, and we collected all the diaries between 02nd November 2020 to 04th November 2020 amidst the lockdown of schools and imposed curfew in certain areas during the COVID 19 situation.
