For the second time in Greece, 19 kindergartens from 5 Municipalities (Kalamaria, Pilea-Hortiatis, Thermaikos, Thermi and Thessaloniki) and 4 Centers for kids’ creative Activities in Thermi Municipality participated in  “ZOOM Campaign - Kids on the move”. 


A total of 673 children took part in the activity and gathered 

6594  'πράσινες πατούσες' or green footprints

for every journey they made on foot within one week, leaving the car at home.



The teachers and the children, through a series of educational methods, such as painting, crafts, theater, singing, storytelling, music and movement activities, puns and on foot excursions learned about the negative impact of car emissions on the environment and climate.



The  teachers showed children alternative ways of transport in developing countries, the threats that animals and human beings are being exposed to because of the climate change, and how our immediate action can help the earth.



The children wrote onto cards what efforts they want to make for the climate and hung them up in the entrance hall of the school as a daily reminder:
1. I throw the litter in the bin!     
2. I recycle   
3. We all together take care of our future   
4. I take care of the planet for the next generations. 



I wake up and I walk to see the sun.

Flowers shall always be on the same place


Children provided their wishes and messages for a better environment under the slogan "Good life is simple”. They asked for more flowers, less waste, less gas emissions and  cleaner  cities and seas. They also understood  that walking to school offers them energy, time to meet friends and less traffic during rush hour.


Poem: He who goes to school on foot, does not the air pollute!

A good car keeps my body healthy and the air clean!


Some pupils created slogans, wrote poems, made posters and even songs for climate protection


“Good life is simple! For all countries, for all Earth, listen to the kids, because only they can tell you.

Good life is simple, on planet Earth, love life, on planet Earth, save life, I recommend, you sing it too”


Earth is crying.
