Raising Environmental Awareness in Eco-Clubs (Schools)
Our workshops aim to raise environmental awareness among ecology club (eco-club) students about nature reserves and biodiversity. Activities can include being outdoors in schoolyards, or out on envrionmental trails. Students are introduced to birds, and their curiosity regarding the natural world is sparked. This helps them discover a passion for science, or can kindle an interest in a hobby they will enjoy for the rest of their lives. On the other hand, the indoor activities introduce the Mahmiyat.ps website to the students as a Palestinian educational tool and resource to learn about the environment.
The schools targeted are both public and private schools in Jericho and Bethlehem.
Partners: The Environment Qaulity Authority and the Palestine Society for Envrionment and Sustainble Development
