Manual for School Environmental Clubs
Type of document: Project documents
Inculcating children and youth in environmental education is an important and effective strategy to address environmental and climate challenges facing the world because they constitute a large proportion of the people. This also creates an opportunity to intervene at a key developmental stage of life and children can be an important influence on the environmental behavior of their parents.
This manual is designed to assist students to start and maintain a successful environmental club. It suggests many activities that clubs can pursue and where to go for help. It encourages students to study the local environment and to contribute to solving environmental problems. In so doing, students will be playing an important role in Environmental Education for Sustainable Development (EESD).
