Our environmental education programme aims to develop both the intellectual and creative capacity of participants enabling them to attain enhanced environmental literarcy. Designed to stimulate enquiring minds and instill a knowledgeable appreciation of the environment, the programme empowers participants to gather and analyse information that leads to finding creative solutions and making informed decisions regarding local environmental issues. These hands on activities are undertaken in close collaboration with government agencies and a nationwide network of practitioners.
With the aim of empowering the public to monitor and evaluate local environmental health, the Green World Foundation specialises in the development of low cost popular means to reading and understanding the local environment. This approach emphasises active learning for the young and effectively raises awareness of the role they can play in taking care of the world around them. Our environmental Detectives porgramme has generated extensive interest in environmental education in schools as well as for local community management. Available programmes include Stream Detectives, Seashore Detectives, and other environmental watch programmes curently under development.
