Alumni Garden: tree planting ceremony

On April 18, representatives of 48 founding countries of UWC Dilijan planted trees that will symbolise the map of countries represented at the college.


Head of College John Puddefoot addressed the young ambassadors on the legacy they are leaving behind for the future generations. "Legend has it that the original Garden of Eden was situated in this region, which is why we are using the tree as a symbol of the life we are bringing from all over the world to Dilijan", he said. The last country not represented in the UWC Dilijan garden is Armenia; Armenian students will plant their tree on graduation day, May 28.
