Launching collaborative action for environmental education
REACHING OUT AND ADDING VALUE
In the spirit of promoting environmental protection and raising awareness of everybody’s responsibility to protect the environment, Antea supported the training of teachers from the Thumana and Borizana schools on the use of the Green Pack designed by the Regional Environmental Center.
The Green Pack is an environmental education kit for teaching children between the ages of 11 and 14 about environmental protection and sustainable development. The Green Pack is primarily intended for teachers and pupils in European schools, where it has been implemented extensively. Since its launch in 2002, it has been produced in 20 language versions for 15 countries.
Antea made possible the training of teachers, as a way of inserting environmental education in schools starting from a young age. Teachers were trained on the premises of the Antea plant for two days about educational methodologies for implementing the Green Pack in schools, waste management, working in groups regarding environmental issues as well as organizing environment-related activities at school.
It is hoped that this training and the expertise gained will allow teachers to raise awareness on environmental issues among their students and to encourage them to further proactively protect the environment.
