General Information on the Project
Title: Environmental Education for Educators (3E)
Funding agency: UNDP-Action for Cooperation and Trust
Host Organisation: Frederick Research Centre, Nature Conservation Unit
Partners: Environmental Studies Centre in Kritou Terra, Environmental Education Centre in Pedoulas, Akrotiri Environmental Education Centre
Duration: 12 months
Aim: Interactive education for students and new educators in environmental education issues.
The project included several activities in order to achieve its multiple goals of educating about environmental issues (i.e. biodiversity conservation, environment protection), promoting nature related exercise/ sports and encouraging tolerance and mutual respect. The participants were those responsible for educating the children; with successful project events, the positive impact would be multifaceted. Both in-service and pre-service teachers nurture their students with environmental awareness and promote peace and reconciliation amongst the future leading members of the two communities.
The project also resulted in the preparation of educational material to be used by the educators.
