On the occasion of International Peace Day, 21 September, ENO schools throughout the world took part in the ENO Tree planting day, including a number of schools in Montenegro.

This year’s theme of International Day of Peace is “Sustainable Development Goals - Building Blocks For Peace”. The Sustainable Development Goals are integral to achieving peace in our time, as development and peace are interdependent and mutually reinforcing. Every single one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals is a building block in the global architecture of peace.

Environment Online- ENO is a global virtual school and network for sustainable development. The first ENO Tree Planting Day took place twelve years ago, 21 September 2004.

The main aim of this Programme is the promotion of sustainable development goals from the new 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, through Programme activities and planting tree actions. Two annual tree planting actions are held on 22 May, UN Biodiversity Day, and on 21 September, the UN Peace Day.

So far, schools and ENO Green Cities have planted over 20 million trees and with the support of governments aim to plant 100 million trees by 2017. With their support this target will most likely to be reached by the end of 2017. ENO commitment was also highlighted by United Nations in Rio +20 Summit.
