CREATING OUR ECO-SCHOOLS

Creating Our Eco-Schools is a training course for pre-school, primary and secondary schools’ teachers to provide environmental awareness, environmental management, and sustainable development education for their students. Through the participatory approach, students in the school learn about environmental issues and take an active role in raising awareness of their families, local governments, and NGOs on environmental issues. Eco-schools’ teachers will take a role in ensuring environmental awareness in other parts of the society, going beyond the teaching of classroom teachers. The most important and integrative factor is student participation again. Students are our valuable future, and a clean and green World is the only thing that we can give to them as a treasure. This course will help teachers to teach students the habits they will use throughout their lifetime and influence their achievement, as far as the environment is concerned.
