      As everybody knows, ecological situation in the world is one of the most important problems of our modern society.

Most people still don’t understand that without their active participation life won’t be better and ecological problems can’t be solved themselves. It’s impossible to control everywhere ecological recommendations observance without people’s active participation in it.
      We need to understand the necessity of teaching people from their childhood to protect the world around them. First of all, we have to realize an ecological reality. It can be done though different educational programs and conferences. It is very pleasant to know that Kazan is not indifferent to ecological problems.
