The training is on the five main pillars of environmental sustainability; energy, food, water, climate change & biodiversity, and waste.
Tomorrow’s leaders need to be equipped for tomorrow’s challenges, and we must adequately prepare our children for the future they will inherit. We have designed an interactive and engaging environmental education curriculum that includes outdoor and hands-on learning activities, games, quizzes, and art activities for a generation where more children are increasingly disconnected from nature as they have grown up indoors. Studies have also shown that environmental education can help children perform better in social studies, science, language arts, and math.
The learning experience is centered around the 5 pillars of sustainability: Food, Ecology, Water, Energy, and Waste; while also helping the children to understand the concept of the Sustainable Development Goals. The curriculum has been developed to include the topic of waste in each of the other pillars. This will be done in a way that is understandable and enjoyable for the children. In this way, we will be able to cover the key aspects of the environmental education experience and that is to change attitudes, provide knowledge, impart skills, develop responsibility, encourage friendship and inspire a generation to act.
This is the pillar of the curriculum that teaches the children about various water bodies and the marine ecosystem. It focuses on the zones of the marine ecosystem, water sanitation, and water pollution.
Ecology and Climate Change
This pillar focuses on biodiversity protection and conservation as well as climate change. The children learn about various terrestrial and aquatic life, the importance of conserving biodiversity, the effects of poaching, plastic pollution, as well as the concept and effects of climate change and global warming.
This pillar is aimed at teaching children about healthy eating, food waste, how food travels and the connection to climate. Most importantly, the children will learn about organic gardening and get the chance to set up an organic/kitchen garden of their own.
This pillar focuses on various sources of energy, and renewable energy and teaches children about energy conservation.
