The web page is dedicated to the Green Ribbon (Ruban Vert) project. As part of combating violence and discrimination in French schools, students and teachers are encouraged to organize various types of events, during which all willing participants pin on green ribbons. Events include surveys about violence in schools, sporting competitions and other happenings. The project is supported by the French Ministry of Education and UNICEF. The web page, www.rubanvert.net
, belongs to the server of Okapi, a biweekly for youth aged 10-15, published by Bayard, one of the biggest French publishers of newspapers and magazines.
The web page is geared toward high school youth and teachers, interested in joining Green Ribbon activities. They can organize a one-time event or form a Green Ribbon club. The web page contains directions for organizers, and forms for club registration and ordering green ribbons.
