To mark the occasion of its official recognition by UNESCO on the 9th of June 2015, the Lake Tana Biosphere Reserve Day will from now on be celebrated annually on 9th June (Sene 2).   This year the celebration of the Lake Tana Biosphere Reserve Day started in 50 pilot schools around the lake. Students and teachers prepared a programme for the day, with songs, speeches, dances and theater. Some planted trees or collected rubbish around their schools to mark the importance of nature and biodiversity for our lives.

The celebrations raise awareness in every schools for the ecological importance of the Lake Tana region, not only among the pupils but also for their families and friends. Every school can participate by organizing some nature friendly activities, discussing topics of nature conservation and/or the biosphere reserve.
