The environmental education and culture have become essential requirements for the environmental awareness of citizen in the Arab Republic of Egypt, especially among children and teenagers.
The Green Corner is considered one of the most important programs targeting this purpose. This is why the Integrated Care Society in 1998 has established the Green Project which started with first 25 and increased to 50 libraries.
The Ministry of Environment and the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA) have contributed effectively with the Integrated Care Society in establishing its own Green Corner.

The expansion and replication of the Green Corner has taken place in all Egyptian Governorates and at the end of year 2002 the establishment and refurbishment of 30 Green Corner sites have been developed in all Governorates.
