Environmental Education

In this programme, we focus on the implications of sustainable development on the current and future social, economic and environmental issues by developing young and adults learners' foundational knowledge, skills and attitudes within this field. Further, we empower the learner with analytical skills by exploring the relationship between people and the biosphere which results in an evaluation of the citizens' role in the maintenance or the deterioration of the environment.



Through environmental awareness, we focus on designing information materials and resources necessary to protect the environment, that is, all citizens have the responsibility for active participation in environmental problem solving. Further, through environmental skills and attitudes, we aim to facilitate youth and youth workers to practice a youth work that creates initiatives toward the resolution of environmental problems to improve and maintain environmental quality.

Overall goal 

Given the many environmental crises that are observed around the world and the many issues surrounding these crises, our training courses aim at training young and adult learners to be prone to becoming environmental activists. This is very important in an era when the world citizens are beginning to realise that environmental issues are, themselves, interdisciplinary, and relate to other social and economic issues associated with sustainable development.

Our approach 

To facilitate environmental literacy, we focus on developing the research-based programmes to leave behind the intuitively-based ones which do not work, but rather leave the learners frustrated and anxious about their future. We make it clear that learners who are only involved in environmental awareness cannot be predicted to become active in finding solutions. This indicates that learners with environmental skills and attitudes are active in environmental issue resolution.

Achieving impact 

Participants develop critical thinking and training skills toward social, economic and environmental development through non-formal education practices. They are developing ventures to transfer and apply those skills by training young and adult learners to become more environmentally literate citizens to build a world population that is both capable and willing to choose lifestyles and behaviours which allow the environment to maintain itself in a sustainable manner.
