Enhancing Conservation Education among Primary Students/ Go Outdoor Project
Today’s youth are disconnected from nature due to fast-growing technology. Go Outdoor is a core tool to educate and connect young people with nature, as our future lies in their hands. They have to understand the importance of protecting and saving nature from its injuries. The project’s purpose was to develop conservation capacity among primary school students by raising awareness of the importance of mountainous ecosystems in sustainable livelihoods for present and future generations.
Students were engaged in identifying threats to the mountainous ecosystems and developing ways of acting to mitigate the consequences of anthropogenic activities. They also had a chance to participate in wild species monitoring using scientific methods. These experiences changed attitudes and behaviors among young people towards mountain resources and they appreciated REMA and RDB’s conservation efforts.
