The participation of all the students in the activities organized by the two schools was such that they helped to create cognitive and value conditions for the children to adopt attitudes and behaviors in matters of protecting the ecological balance, quality of life and sustainability of development, as well as in strengthening the historical, national and cultural ties that connect Cyprus with Greece and promoting relations of friendship and cooperation.

The "Golden Green Leaf" is a transnational environmental education program between Cyprus and Greece. 28 Junior High Schools and High Schools (14 from Cyprus and 14 from Greece) participate in this, which in pairs of partnerships design, plan and prepare Environmental Education programs.

The purpose of the "Golden Green Leaf" program is to promote the cooperation of students, teachers, ministries, parent and guardian associations, local municipalities and communities and environmental agencies to provide the students and teachers of the two countries with environmental education opportunities, in order to create environmentally literate active citizens who are also aware of environmental issues.
