A heard for biodiversity
The smallest ones living in Nepal will learn how important it is to protect biodiversity and how important sustainable resources are with 25 euros.
“Green schools” and training programs for young “ecopreneurs” will already sensibilize children for the unique ecosystem they live in and which includes biodiversity of animals and plants to be protected.
The “Green school” should be a model of sustainable society and it should informa bout sustainable treatment of natural resources.
On one side, children will design their own learning rooms in order to protect many natural resources and to use them effectively. On the other side nature itself should be the classroom and offer innovative learning activities under the open sky. School gardens are designed and built in order to inform children and community members about healthy alimentation and they also serve as training place for natural science as a subject.
”I never walked through such a wonderful, untouched natural landscape as the one I visited during my project excursion in Nepal in the end of last year. The smallest already learn how to keep this protectable paradies in the Green Schools. This is a project for the future, whose utility convinced myself when I was there”, explained Nora Korthals, speaker of the Welthungerhilfe.
- Nepal belongs to the least developed countries of the world. Every second child suffers from malnutrition.
- Every third Nepalese lives from less than one US dollar a day.
- The younger part of the community considers it inferior to work as farmers and therefore the encouragement of protecting natural resources and biodiversity isn’t given.
