Greening the Planet Eco-Initiative is being held for the second year in a row. The regional coordinator in Zaporizhzhia region was the Social Business Initiatives charitable foundation. In 2020, the greening initiative covered the whole of Ukraine, and in 2021 it went far beyond the borders of the country. Taking into account the tightening of quarantine standards, the eco-initiative took place in the format of individual landings.
