Ecology in the Moscow Region
Dmitry Kurakin, Deputy Prime Minister of the Moscow Region and Minister of Ecology of the Region, notes that children are showing increased interest in environmental problems. He argues that children can teach parents “environmental literacy.” The minister believes that the problems with landfills, which arose several years ago, increased public attention to the environmental literacy of the population. Every resident of Moscow and the Moscow region became interested in the issues of purification and preservation of a favorable state of the environment. The Ministry has received requests for environmental education and campaigns.
