Environmental education in schools

Environmental education can significantly increase the awareness for the environment and thus the willingness to protect nature. This awareness should be promoted especially among the young generations. Therefore, environmental education in schools plays a key role. Surveys among the local population and expert interviews as well as visits to school were used to determine knowledge about the value of forests. Based on the collected information, learning materials and recommendations for school lessons are developed. This working package is led by Lea Nowotny (PLUS), and supervised by Alexandra Reith (University of Vechta) and guided by Timothy Musa (Pwani University).
