The Lycian is one of the most interesting regions in terms of the historical and natural riches of Anatolia. In ancient times, as the "Country of Light", ancient cities in the region of knowing are almost intertwined with nature. The Lycian route, starting from Fethiye and extending to Antalya, is a nature and a walking route created by mapping and marking a part of the pathways along Teke peninsula.The Lycian Way was opened in 1999 by Kate Clow. It is shown as one of the top 10 longest walking trails in the world. Notre Dame de Sion French High School students walked the Fethiye-Faralya route for 2 days in order to emphasize the pollution of nature and to raise awareness by raising environmental awareness on April 20-24. Students who volunteered to collect garbage along the way while walking, aimed at greening by throwing seeds and fruit cores they had prepared at the same time.Students who walked in history, mountain and sea trio and marveled at wonderful landscapes, succeeded this activity and took the attention of the local and national press. With this project, the students of Notre Dame de Sion aim to voluntarily clean up some of the historic Lycian way and to lead them in their efforts for a sustainable future.
