Most, if not all, provincial/territorial curricula include either goals or language relating to environmental education - to a greater or lesser degree. In many provinces, there is not an environmental education curriculum per se. Instead the approach to environmental education is disbursed - it appears as a topic within other subject curricula (e.g. math, science, etc.) Among the provinces, Manitoba is one that has taken a more active role in environmental education. For example, the Manitoba Department of Education, Citizenship and Youth has established a Sustainable Development Initiative (Unit), has developed a provincial Education for Sustainability Action Plan and has created an Education for Sustainable Development working group.</p> <p><strong>EE in K-12 Education</strong></p> <p>At the municipal level, individual school boards are responsible for implementing the provincial curriculum, and each board makes budget allocation decisions and chooses and/or develops their own curriculum materials. As such, they are a key player in how and to what degree environmental education is implemented in the schools. For example, school boards normally screen environmental education programs offered to students by outside agencies, and may distribute material within their district. A few school boards have created environmental educational resource positions. Some have prepared environmental reports. For example, the Toronto Region District School Board has produced an Environment Report and the Commission Scolaire de Montréal has developed a Sustainable Development Action Plan. School principals and teachers also play a key role in implementing the curriculum, and how environmental education is reflected in the classroom varies by school and class.</p> <p><strong>Professional Development</strong></p> <p>Most provinces have some kind of volunteer associations or networks of teachers that support environmental education. These groups usually focus on teacher professional development and networking, and in some cases include affiliates - those environmental educators not employed by the formal system. A few are specialist councils of the provincial teachers' union, composed of teachers with specific interest in environmental education. The union that represents teachers in Quebec, <a href="http://www.lacsq.org/">la Centrale des Syndicates du Québec (CSQ)</a>, plays a major role through its green schools program, <a href="http://evb.lacsq.org/">Établissements verts Brundtland (EVB)</a>, which offers educational programs, teacher training and support, and certification/recognition of green schools. CSQ also acts as the Quebec Secretariat for Green Street. The Green Street program outside Quebec is hosted by the <a href="http://www.ctf-fce.ca/en/Pages/default.aspx">Canadian Teachers Federation (CTF)</a>, which is increasing its involvement in environmental education on various levels. A number of post-secondary institutions in Canada are involved in environmental education. For example, the <a href="http://www.uqam.ca/">Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM)</a> holds the only Canadian Research Chair in Environmental Education and offers both Masters and Doctoral Degrees, and Royal Roads University offers a Master’s Degree in Environmental Education. </p></div> <div class="field-country-leadership"><p><strong>National Associations</strong></p> <p>Key national players that focus exclusively on environmental education include the <a href="http://eecom.org/">Canadian Network for Environmental Education and Communication (EECOM</a>), Learning for a Sustainable Future (LSF), and Green Street. Several associations work specifically to promote and advance environmental education in their provinces (e.g. <a href="http://www.eeon.org/">Environmental Education Ontario</a>, the <a href="http://www.abcee.org/">Alberta Council for Environmental Education</a>, and the <a href="http://www.aqpere.qc.ca/">Association québécoise pour la promotion de l'éducation relative à l'environnement -- AQPERE</a>)</p> <p><strong>EE in the National Government</strong></p> <p><a href="http://www.ec.gc.ca/default.asp?lang=en&amp;n=FD9B0E51-1">Environment and Climate Change Canada</a> is the main federal player in environmental education, generally under the rubric of its sustainable development activities and goals. Environment Canada is collaborating actively with others to steward Canada's response to the <a href="http://en.unesco.org/themes/education-sustainable-development/what-is-esd/un-decade-of-esd">UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development</a> (2005 - 2014) and with helping to move forward education for sustainable development in Canada. Direct federal involvement in formal environmental education is limited by its lack of constitutional authority for education. However, the federal government can and does work in this area through partnerships, facilitating working groups, etc. - and is an important player in this regard. The <a href="http://www.cmec.ca/en/">Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC)</a>, which is made up of the provincial/territorial ministers of education, includes education for sustainability within its mandate and has completed some survey reports on this topic. In addition, many provincial government departments of the environment have their own environmental education programs, sometimes with both a non-formal and formal component. Some other federal departments are also involved in environmental education including <a href="https://www.nrcan.gc.ca/home">Natural Resources Canada</a> (resources for teachers), <a href="http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/index.aspx">Parks Canada</a> (education and interpretation in parks and marine conservation areas), and <a href="http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/index-eng.htm">Fisheries and Oceans Canada</a> (local environmental education in coastal communities).</p></div> <div class="striping view view-eva view-organisations-for-country view-id-organisations_for_country

Currently, 7 of 13 provincial/territorial ministries have EE mandates in one or more domains (governance, curriculum, operations, research, etc.), and 10 provinces/territories have overarching curricular frameworks that integrate components of EE.</p></div> Wed, 03 Apr 2019 10:24:23 +0000 admin 147 at https://thegeep.org Japan https://thegeep.org/learn/countries/japan Japan<span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 04/03/2019 - 10:24</span> <div class="field-top-image-for-subpages"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_extra_wide/public/2019-04/Mountfujijapan.jpg?h=a3d4f5a9&amp;itok=zpuEXlxX 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1500px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide/public/2019-04/Mountfujijapan.jpg?h=a3d4f5a9&amp;itok=GLk1s3zf 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide_2x/public/2019-04/Mountfujijapan.jpg?h=a3d4f5a9&amp;itok=TWfMQw14 2x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px) and (max-width: 1499px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_desk/public/2019-04/Mountfujijapan.jpg?h=a3d4f5a9&amp;itok=p0xUhX2w 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_dest_2x/public/2019-04/Mountfujijapan.jpg?h=a3d4f5a9&amp;itok=VFMicPWw 2x" media="all and (min-width: 960px) and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_tablet/public/2019-04/Mountfujijapan.jpg?h=a3d4f5a9&amp;itok=g5jzYhN2 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_tablet_2x/public/2019-04/Mountfujijapan.jpg?h=a3d4f5a9&amp;itok=lZCGjoqp 2x" media="all and (min-width: 600px) and (max-width: 959px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_mobile/public/2019-04/Mountfujijapan.jpg?h=a3d4f5a9&amp;itok=ANFvPImM 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_mobile_2x/public/2019-04/Mountfujijapan.jpg?h=a3d4f5a9&amp;itok=wy29ArP6 2x" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide/public/2019-04/Mountfujijapan.jpg?h=a3d4f5a9&amp;itok=GLk1s3zf" alt="Mount Fuji" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </picture> </div> <div class="striping view view-eva view-country-map view-id-country_map view-display-id-entity_view_2 js-view-dom-id-37ff61961285470948a53e5abcb4d9c6b5ee73120dd6d4907b337c72d237e5d1"> <div class="views-row"> <div class="category-links"> <div class="views-field views-field-field-country-category-1"><div class="field-content"><span class="small-caps">Category(s):</span></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-country-category"><div class="field-content"><div class="item-list"><ul><li><a href="/taxonomy/term/10" hreflang="en">GEEP Advisory Group</a></li><li><a href="/taxonomy/term/8" hreflang="en">National Policy</a></li></ul></div></div></div></div> </div> </div> <div class="field-country-policy-practice"><p><strong>National Legislation</strong></p> <p>The Act for Enhancing Motivation on Environmental Conservation and Promoting of Environmental Education of 2003 was amended in June 2011, with the embedding of the principles of ESD. It came into full force in October 2012 as the Act on the Promotion of Environmental Conservation Activities through Environmental Education. The purpose(s) of the legislation at the local/grassroots level are: 1) To promote EE through voluntary efforts within the public and private sectors and civil society. 2) To stipulate “the promotion of EE at home, in school, in the workplace and in the community (i.e., in formal &amp; non-formal settings ) geared toward the improvement of citizens understanding of environmental conservation. 3) Enrich training programmes for teachers (including hands on approaches to EE), and development of teaching materials and information service” (MoEJ, 2013).</p> <p><strong>EE in K-12 Education</strong></p> <p>The Junior Eco Club was launched in 1995 by the <a href="https://www.env.go.jp/en/">Ministry of the Environment</a>. It aim is to raise awareness of elementary and junior high school students, supporting their environmental conservation activities and promoting various extra-curricular “green” activities. Comprised of between 3-20 members, they can receive the “Earth Ranger” certificate after one year of participation. The <a href="https://www.jeas.or.jp/english/">Japan Environment Association</a> serves as the national secretariat, with a working group that includes  <a href="https://www.env.go.jp/en/">Ministry of the Environment</a> personnel, environmental educators and officials from local government. Eco Clubs also receive support from “Coordinators” – in charge of the Eco-club activities at the local government level; “Supporters” – who supervise the voluntary activities of the children; and a “Supporting Group” – a registry of voluntary experts who can support through facilitation of field activities and give advice in response to request from the clubs. Junior Eco Club fosters peer learning through exchange of information among clubs through the National Secretariat called “Ecological Communication”</p> <p><strong>Professional Development</strong></p> <p>The Environmental Counselor Project is a national registry of individuals to provide advice/ counselling and instruction for environmental conservation activities, based on their experience and knowledge, to civilians and entrepreneurs who wish to undertake environmental preservation activities.

Through policy, they will promote international cooperation with the UN and other education programs and policy processes (<a href="https://ias.unu.edu/en/">United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS)</a>, Regional Centers for Expertise (RCE) &amp; <a href="http://prospernet.ias.unu.edu/">ProSPER.Net</a> (Promotion of Sustainability in Postgraduate Education and Research), the <a href="thegeep.org">Global Environmental Education Partnership (GEEP)</a>, and bilateral policy dialogues. They will also increase interagency coordination to streamline EE/ESD programs. Specifically, the Environmental Partnership Offices will promote EE policy in the local areas, 11 ministries will coordinate on the National Implementation Plan on ESD (2015-2019). The <a href="https://www.env.go.jp/en/">Ministry of Environment Japan</a> (MoEJ), <a href="http://www.mext.go.jp/en/">Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Japan (MEXT)</a>, <a href="http://www.maff.go.jp/e/">Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries (MAFF)</a>, <a href="http://www.meti.go.jp/english/">Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI)</a>, and <a href="http://www.mlit.go.jp/en/index.html">Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism (MLIT)</a> will work together on the promotion of environmental conservation activities through environmental education. Secondly, the <a href="https://www.env.go.jp/en/">Ministry of Environment Japan</a> will work in NGOs and CSOs by disseminating EE through teaching (organizing seminars, develop and publish textbooks and research), research (increase capacity and outreach through the <a href="http://www.iges.or.jp/en/">Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES)</a>), and practice (implementing EE/ESD by Regional Centers of Expertise (RCEs) and other NGOs/NPOs).</p> <p>At the state level, the <a href="https://www.env.go.jp/en/">Environment Ministry</a>, in cooperation with the <a href="http://www.mext.go.jp/en/">Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Japan (MEXT)</a> WILL seek public input and draft policy to promote EE.

The program provides a nationwide process for advancing environmental literacy and achieving the goals of Taiwan’s strategic plan for sustainable development. The Environmental Education Act informs national environmental education guidelines, an EE action plan (through legislation, certification programs, evaluations, and assessments), and the conduct of government organizations. The national policy also requires that all students and any staff in government and business engage in 4 hours of government funded environmental education curriculum each year. Additionally, Taiwan and the United States work together on the U.S.-Taiwan Eco Campus program to share EE experiences through student exchange programs. In 2016, there were 85 pairs of schools participating in the program (a total of 170 schools) between the US &amp; Taiwan.  Taiwan’s efforts to improve environmental literacy through national policy, engaging programs, and EE certification are being met with substantial success, as the country now hosts over 7,000 certified EE personnel, with over 3,000 of them working in the national school system.</p></div> Wed, 03 Apr 2019 10:24:23 +0000 admin 143 at https://thegeep.org United Kingdom https://thegeep.org/learn/countries/united-kingdom United Kingdom<span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 04/03/2019 - 10:24</span> <div class="field-top-image-for-subpages"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_extra_wide/public/2019-04/Widecombe_in_the_Moor%2C_Devon.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=fuGYAz5l 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1500px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide/public/2019-04/Widecombe_in_the_Moor%2C_Devon.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=X6jRQ6TE 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide_2x/public/2019-04/Widecombe_in_the_Moor%2C_Devon.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=6jYeaeoS 2x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px) and (max-width: 1499px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_desk/public/2019-04/Widecombe_in_the_Moor%2C_Devon.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=mBELBrZJ 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_dest_2x/public/2019-04/Widecombe_in_the_Moor%2C_Devon.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=qpYNMmJw 2x" media="all and (min-width: 960px) and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_tablet/public/2019-04/Widecombe_in_the_Moor%2C_Devon.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=a8Np2bw4 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_tablet_2x/public/2019-04/Widecombe_in_the_Moor%2C_Devon.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=H7cmtSJV 2x" media="all and (min-width: 600px) and (max-width: 959px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_mobile/public/2019-04/Widecombe_in_the_Moor%2C_Devon.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=0QFKEtFQ 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_mobile_2x/public/2019-04/Widecombe_in_the_Moor%2C_Devon.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=PGvmWoES 2x" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide/public/2019-04/Widecombe_in_the_Moor%2C_Devon.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=X6jRQ6TE" alt="Devon" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </picture> </div> <div class="striping view view-eva view-country-map view-id-country_map view-display-id-entity_view_2 js-view-dom-id-0606a43e7cead40572a82a94b6a5084f5b7a925c0cf026ed1e6d74c6b6a1968d"> <div class="views-row"> <div class="category-links"> <div class="views-field views-field-field-country-category-1"><div class="field-content"><span class="small-caps">Category(s):</span></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-country-category"><div class="field-content"><div class="item-list"><ul><li><a href="/taxonomy/term/10" hreflang="en">GEEP Advisory Group</a></li><li><a href="/taxonomy/term/9" hreflang="en">Professional Association</a></li></ul></div></div></div></div> </div> </div> <div class="field-country-policy-practice"><p><strong>National Legislation</strong></p> <p>All schooling in England is governed by the <a href="http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2002/32/contents">2002 Education Act</a>. Section 78 of the Act specifies general requirements in relation to curriculum. These include that the curriculum for a publicly-funded school or nursery school “satisfies the requirements of this section if it is a balanced and broadly based curriculum which (a) promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and (b) prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.” Section 3.2 of the National Curriculum for England provides a mandate of sorts for schools seeking to deliver Environmental Education: “The national curriculum is just one element in the education of every child. There is time and space in the school day and in each week, term and year to range beyond the national curriculum specifications. The national curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.”</p> <p><strong>EE in K-12 Education</strong></p> <p>Northern Ireland’s <a href="http://www.eco-schoolsni.org/">Eco-Schools Programme</a> provides a structured 7-step method for improving the environmental standards in schools. The program is pupil-driven and involves the whole school. Every school in Northern Ireland is enrolled in the program and working towards the internationally-recognized Green Flag award. The Eco-Schools program works with many <a href="http://eco-schoolsni.org/cgi-bin/partners?instanceID=1">regional and national environmental education partners</a>. In addition, within the primary years (age 4-11) curriculum, pupils have an area of learning called “The World Around Us” which looks at environmental topics, among others, including social and historical. In Post Primary (age 11-14) there is an area of learning called “Environment and Society” which covers environmental issues among others. These areas of learning are cross-curricular and cut through all subjects. Visit the <a href="https://www.education-ni.gov.uk/articles/statutory-curriculum%20and%20http:/ccea.org.uk/curriculum/">Department of Education</a> for more information.</p> <p>In England, the phrase “environmental education” does not appear in legislation, although there are numerous examples of where environmental issues and topics feature in curricular and schemes of work (for primary schools, see <a href="http://www.naee.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/NAEE_The_Environmental_Curriculum.pdf">www.naee.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/NAEE_The_Environmental_Curriculum.pdf</a>). There is a similar pattern for secondary education, and for the public examinations that pupils take at ages 16 and 18. A limited selection of environmental topics are covered in the National Curriculum, but an overarching aim to develop pupils' “awareness and understanding of, and respect for, the environments in which they live, and secure their commitment to sustainable development at a personal, local, national and global level” was removed in 2014.</p> <p><strong>Professional Development</strong></p> <p>In terms of in-service professional accreditation, a number of environmental organisations provide such schemes. Prominent amongst these is <a href="http://www.forestschooltraining.co.uk/">Forest Schools</a> accreditation. Further examples are the schemes promoted by <a href="http://se-ed.co.uk/">SEEd</a> and <a href="http://www.ltl.org.uk/">Learning Through Landscapes</a>. None of these is the equivalent of a formally-recognized professional qualification to teach in schools. Environmental educators also engage in training courses offered by organizations such as <a href="http://www.eco-schools.org.uk/">Eco-Schools</a> (operated by <a href="http://www.keepbritaintidy.org/home/481">Keep Britain Tidy</a>), <a href="http://se-ed.co.uk/">SEEd</a>, and <a href="http://www.ltl.org.uk/">Learning Through Landscapes</a> at a national level, and by localized providers such as <a href="http://www.lifeworldslearning.co.uk/">Lifeworlds Learning</a>, <a href="https://www.greenschoolsproject.org.uk/">Green Schools Project</a> and Local Authority Environmental departments. There are a number of networking organizations for environmental educators such as <a href="http://www.meen.org.uk/">Manchester Environmental Education Network</a> and <a href="http://www.leef.org.uk/">London Environmental Educators Forum</a> who organize meetings and training events throughout the year.</p> <p>There is no specific environmental education certification program in Northern Ireland. Environmental Educators tend to hold an environmental qualification, an education qualification, are self-taught, or a mixture of all of these things. There is therefore a wide range of qualifications and different skills in the environmental education sector which are adaptable for many different job roles. Teachers tend not to have environmental education backgrounds, and are more often personally enthusiastic about the topic and self-driven to gather other qualifications, such as Forest Schools or field studies certificates. Educators typically receive professional development through their work places, or individual efforts to expand their skill set. A wide range of different courses are available, but not through one specific organization or website.</p></div> <div class="field-country-leadership"><p><strong>Professional Associations</strong></p> <p>The <a href="http://naee.org.uk/">National Association for Environmental Education (UK)</a> has existed since the 1960s. It is a member association and a UK charity whose purpose is to advance environmental education within early years settings, primary and secondary schools, and institutions responsible for teacher education within the UK and elsewhere, in particular but without limitation by [i] facilitating curriculum development through the provision of resources, information and ideas for teachers, [ii] providing financial support for pupils to visit outdoor education centers, and [iii] collaborating with organizations that have related objectives. Another national organization with a focus on environmental education matters is <a href="///C:\Users\Emily\Desktop\se-ed.co.uk\edu">Sustainability and Environmental Education (SEEd)</a>. SEEd is a registered charity that identifies, promotes, enables and supports environmental education and education for sustainable development in the UK. There are also city-based environmental education organizations such as the <a href="http://www.meen.org.uk/">Manchester Environmental Education Network</a> and the <a href="http://www.leef.org.uk/">London Environmental Educators Forum</a>.</p> <p><strong>EE in the National Government</strong></p> <p>In Northern Ireland, the <a href="https://www.daera-ni.gov.uk/">Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs</a> (DAERA) supports environmental education and environmental education providers.</p> <p><strong>National EE Campaigns and Funding</strong></p> <p>Environmental (and sustainability) education is funded in a range of informal ways in England, such as membership subscriptions and fees, project grants, sales of publications and merchandise, and sponsorship.</p> <p>Many environmental education organizations in Northern Ireland are funded in part by DAERA and also through other funding streams and income revenue. For example, the Eco-Schools Programme receives a mixture of funding from DAERA, local councils, and other businesses and charities.</p></div> <div class="striping view view-eva

class="field-country-overview"><p>Although there is no specific national mandate for environmental education in England, a range of policies and practices that support teachers in this work can be found. For example, many organizations and groups are now working to raise public awareness of environmental issues and climate change, and reduce the gap between people’s lives and the natural world by integrating environmental and sustainability education into the curriculum, by building capacity to take action, and by influencing policy. The following are particularly significant: cross-discipline references to environmental issues in school curricula, government support for global learning, a wide-spread Eco-Schools program (an international award that provides a framework for schools to integrate sustainability into school life), many outdoor learning programs (such as forest schools) that use the ‘outdoor classroom’ to help young people develop personal, social, and technical skills and build a sustainable future, and national membership organizations with a specific remit to support teachers and schools. These understand that environmental education will flourish where school leaders are supportive and see its merits, and that building bridges between environmental education and global learning is important.</p> <p>Across Northern Ireland, all schools are enrolled in the <a href="http://www.eco-schoolsni.org/">Eco-Schools Programme</a>, which works in partnership with a range of environmental education organizations to improve environmental standards in schools. In addition, the school curriculum in Northern Ireland includes exploration of environmental issues across the curriculum. Environmental educators in Northern Ireland receive training through a variety of approaches; there is no singular certification pathway or training program. Within the national government, the <a href="https://www.daera-ni.gov.uk/">Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs</a> (DAERA) supports environmental education and environmental education providers, including by providing some funding for environmental education efforts. Environmental education in Northern Ireland may also be supported by other funding streams, such as businesses, local councils, or charitable organizations.</p></div> Wed, 03 Apr 2019 10:24:23 +0000 admin 141 at https://thegeep.org The Netherlands https://thegeep.org/learn/countries/netherlands The Netherlands<span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 04/03/2019 - 10:24</span> <div class="field-top-image-for-subpages"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_extra_wide/public/2019-04/Duvelskuul.jpg?h=b179e7bc&amp;itok=QyGr5Yu8 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1500px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide/public/2019-04/Duvelskuul.jpg?h=b179e7bc&amp;itok=6fvsewS_ 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide_2x/public/2019-04/Duvelskuul.jpg?h=b179e7bc&amp;itok=2mbBHJLB 2x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px) and (max-width: 1499px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_desk/public/2019-04/Duvelskuul.jpg?h=b179e7bc&amp;itok=dSaQO2Vp 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_dest_2x/public/2019-04/Duvelskuul.jpg?h=b179e7bc&amp;itok=1GzPNLJD 2x" media="all and (min-width: 960px) and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_tablet/public/2019-04/Duvelskuul.jpg?h=b179e7bc&amp;itok=ApYBF9BX 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_tablet_2x/public/2019-04/Duvelskuul.jpg?h=b179e7bc&amp;itok=v7zKyQYw 2x" media="all and (min-width: 600px) and (max-width: 959px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_mobile/public/2019-04/Duvelskuul.jpg?h=b179e7bc&amp;itok=KpUUuZJ3 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_mobile_2x/public/2019-04/Duvelskuul.jpg?h=b179e7bc&amp;itok=mr7GctcK 2x" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide/public/2019-04/Duvelskuul.jpg?h=b179e7bc&amp;itok=6fvsewS_" alt="Duvelskuul" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </picture> </div> <div class="striping view view-eva view-country-map view-id-country_map view-display-id-entity_view_2 js-view-dom-id-25b34d67b3c5f3b13c2f0ef6fb3899f0f9dafffc84f6c06466dbf4819b9cccef"> <div class="views-row"> <div class="category-links"> <div class="views-field views-field-field-country-category-1"><div class="field-content"><span class="small-caps">Category(s):</span></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-country-category"><div class="field-content"><div class="item-list"><ul><li><a href="/taxonomy/term/10" hreflang="en">GEEP Advisory Group</a></li><li><a href="/taxonomy/term/9" hreflang="en">Professional Association</a></li></ul></div></div></div></div> </div> </div> <div class="field-country-policy-practice"><p><strong>National Legislation</strong></p> <p>The Netherlands has a long history of environmental education and Education for Sustainability policies, which began with the European Year for Nature Conservation in 1970. The first policy advice specific to environmental education in the Netherlands was released in 1975, the first national EE act was passed in 1988, and the first multi-year environmental education action program was initiated in 1992. The sustainability topic was introduced into EE in the Netherlands in 1999. During the UN Decade for Sustainable Development – which began in 2005 – the Netherlands released two separate policies: one for environmental education (EE) and one for Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). The EE and ESD policies converged in 2013 under the country’s <a href="https://www.duurzaamdoor.nl/">Duurzaam Door</a> program.</p> <p><strong>EE in K-12 Education</strong></p> <p>K-12 educators in the Netherlands can access environmental education resources through <a href="http://www.groengelinkt.nl/">Groen Gelinkt</a>, an online search system that allows educators from primary schools, secondary schools, and afterschool programs to locate EE resources by topic and audience. <a href="http://duurzamepabo.nl/duurzame-pabo/missie-en-visie-duurzame-pabo/">Sustainable PABOs</a> offers support for schools in initiating sustainability projects. <a href="https://www.duurzaamdoor.nl/sustainable-chain-gang#overlay-context=search%3Fsearch_api_views_fulltext%3Dsustainable%2Bchain%2Bgang%26op%3DSearch">Sustainable Chain Gang (VO</a>) provides a network for secondary schools to support one another in sustainability education efforts.</p> <p><strong>Professional Development</strong></p> <p><a href="http://duurzamepabo.nl/duurzame-pabo/missie-en-visie-duurzame-pabo/">Sustainable PABOs</a> supports environmental educators by offering professional learning opportunities through conferences, lectures and workshops, newsletters with tips and activities, and online resources.

National policy also supports new forms of monitoring and evaluation for the country’s prominent environmental education programs, such as Groen Gelinkt, a web hub that offers teaching materials and information about environmental education and sustainability. The Netherlands also facilitates national education networks for sustainability in higher education and vocational practices to lobby at all levels and achieve key objectives for engaging students in sustainable development curricula, research, and practice.</p></div> Wed, 03 Apr 2019 10:24:23 +0000 admin 140 at https://thegeep.org United Arab Emirates https://thegeep.org/learn/countries/united-arab-emirates United Arab Emirates<span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 04/03/2019 - 10:24</span> <div class="field-top-image-for-subpages"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_extra_wide/public/2019-04/Dubai%2C_United_Arab_Emirates_%28Unsplash_nivUcf9H3PI%29.jpg?h=ada05aa9&amp;itok=N2Y2TWbx 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1500px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide/public/2019-04/Dubai%2C_United_Arab_Emirates_%28Unsplash_nivUcf9H3PI%29.jpg?h=ada05aa9&amp;itok=S4oAyh7n 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide_2x/public/2019-04/Dubai%2C_United_Arab_Emirates_%28Unsplash_nivUcf9H3PI%29.jpg?h=ada05aa9&amp;itok=DeUuuPmI 2x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px) and (max-width: 1499px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_desk/public/2019-04/Dubai%2C_United_Arab_Emirates_%28Unsplash_nivUcf9H3PI%29.jpg?h=ada05aa9&amp;itok=jErOksa5 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_dest_2x/public/2019-04/Dubai%2C_United_Arab_Emirates_%28Unsplash_nivUcf9H3PI%29.jpg?h=ada05aa9&amp;itok=o8g9n-5z 2x" media="all and (min-width: 960px) and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_tablet/public/2019-04/Dubai%2C_United_Arab_Emirates_%28Unsplash_nivUcf9H3PI%29.jpg?h=ada05aa9&amp;itok=KXmEBjm5 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_tablet_2x/public/2019-04/Dubai%2C_United_Arab_Emirates_%28Unsplash_nivUcf9H3PI%29.jpg?h=ada05aa9&amp;itok=DK9uxe8G 2x" media="all and (min-width: 600px) and (max-width: 959px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_mobile/public/2019-04/Dubai%2C_United_Arab_Emirates_%28Unsplash_nivUcf9H3PI%29.jpg?h=ada05aa9&amp;itok=schdjdJQ 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_mobile_2x/public/2019-04/Dubai%2C_United_Arab_Emirates_%28Unsplash_nivUcf9H3PI%29.jpg?h=ada05aa9&amp;itok=pie3Lew_ 2x" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide/public/2019-04/Dubai%2C_United_Arab_Emirates_%28Unsplash_nivUcf9H3PI%29.jpg?h=ada05aa9&amp;itok=S4oAyh7n" alt="Sandscape in UAE" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </picture> </div> <div class="striping view view-eva view-country-map view-id-country_map view-display-id-entity_view_2 js-view-dom-id-ab7b7dd75a39e82b0b989d5616bed911a4ce7180bc84de9964adf65f7f118932"> <div class="views-row"> <div class="category-links"> <div class="views-field views-field-field-country-category-1"><div class="field-content"><span class="small-caps">Category(s):</span></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-country-category"><div class="field-content"><div class="item-list"><ul><li><a href="/taxonomy/term/10" hreflang="en">GEEP Advisory Group</a></li></ul></div></div></div></div> </div> </div> <div class="field-country-policy-practice"><p><strong>EE in K-12 Education</strong></p> <p>The United Arab Emirates engages schools in environmental education and sustainability practices through a number of key programs that share objectives at the local, national, and international levels. For example, the UAE’s Enviro-Spellathon is an eco-literacy program targeting students in elementary and middle school. Approximately 90% of the nation’s schools are engaged in the program. Perhaps the UAE’s most successful program, the <a href="https://sustainableschools.ead.ae/en-us/Pages/default.aspx">Sustainable Schools Initiative</a>, is already achieving significant positive outcomes. Schools that are involved in the program have demonstrated a concrete reduction in their ecological footprint, and the program’s “lead school” concept (wherein schools that have attained a certain level of sustainability adopt newer and younger schools to mentor), has increased participation in the Sustainable Schools Initiative to 60% across the country. The United Nations Environment Program has endorsed the quality of the Sustainable Schools Initiative and has recommended it be worth implementing at the regional level. In 2014, the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi, launched the <a href="http://www.sustainablecampus.ae/">Sustainable Campus Initiative</a> to strengthen and build leadership capacity among youth studying at the institutions of higher education. The programs helps harness of the power of youth as change agents in society.</p></div> <div class="field-country-leadership"><p><strong>EE in the National Government</strong></p> <p>The UAE’s programs follow a multi-stakeholder engagement and a collaborative approach while implementing their educational initiatives.

This statement provides a description of the nature and purpose of environmental education for sustainability through all years of schooling, including a vision and a framework for its implementation. It is intended for teachers, schools and their communities, education systems and developers of curriculum materials. It is also intended as a companion to existing State and Territory policies and programs and does not replace them. In 2009, <a href="http://www.environment.gov.au/sustainability/education/publications/living-sustainably-national-action-plan">Living Sustainably: The Australian Government's National Action Plan for Education for Sustainability</a>, was launched. Its aim is to equip all Australians with the knowledge and skills required to live sustainably. The plan has been prepared in conjunction with the National Council on Education for Sustainability by the Australian Government Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts.</p> <p><strong>EE in K-12 Education</strong></p> <p>In 2010, the <a href="http://www.environment.gov.au/sustainability/education/publications/sustainability-curriculum-framework-guide">Sustainability Curriculum Framework</a> was published. It describes what students may need to learn to live sustainably, and considers the most appropriate times and environments in which these learnings should occur. Environmental education initiatives also exist at the regional level. For example, the <a href="http://www.hopeaustralia.org.au/uploads/media/Queensland_Environmentally_Sustainable_Schools_Initiative__QESSI__overview.pdf">Queensland Environmentally Sustainable Schools Initiative</a> establishes a network of environmentally sustainable schools that demonstrate curricula connections and environmental action based on ecological sustainable development principles. A website supports schools, their partners and the community in realizing a positive environmental vision for their schools. </p></div> <div class="field-country-leadership"><p><strong>National Associations</strong></p> <p>The <a href="http://www.aaee.org.au">Australian Association for Environmental Education</a> believes that education is central to achieving a sustainable future. The AAEE has three major roles: 1) promoting the most extensive and effective use of education to help people to live more sustainably, 2) supporting its members and other in the sector via professional develop, and 3) building greater strength in local networks that facilitate collaboration and skill sharing. They accomplish this through providing professional resources for educators and advocate and lobby at the national and state levels.</p></div> <div class="striping view view-eva

The Plan outlines a national action framework with four primary strategies to prioritize and address the needs of education for sustainability. Additional regional and state legislation sets goals for environmental education and education for sustainability throughout the country. For example, the Queensland Environmentally Sustainable Schools Initiative seeks to establish a network of environmentally sustainable schools that demonstrate curricula connections and environmental action based on sustainable development principles. Similarly, the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians outlines strategies for improving educational outcomes for Australian youth and includes a section on creating active and informed citizens working toward improving natural and social environments.</p></div> Wed, 03 Apr 2019 10:24:23 +0000 admin 138 at https://thegeep.org New Zealand https://thegeep.org/learn/countries/new-zealand New Zealand<span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 04/03/2019 - 10:24</span> <div class="field-top-image-for-subpages"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_extra_wide/public/2019-04/Port_Levy%2C_Canterbury%2C_New_Zealand%2C_20th._Nov._2010_-_Flickr_-_PhillipC_%282%29.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=MmP6KCnh 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1500px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide/public/2019-04/Port_Levy%2C_Canterbury%2C_New_Zealand%2C_20th._Nov._2010_-_Flickr_-_PhillipC_%282%29.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=zT4K9IUv 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide_2x/public/2019-04/Port_Levy%2C_Canterbury%2C_New_Zealand%2C_20th._Nov._2010_-_Flickr_-_PhillipC_%282%29.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=tY0bZDhe 2x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px) and (max-width: 1499px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_desk/public/2019-04/Port_Levy%2C_Canterbury%2C_New_Zealand%2C_20th._Nov._2010_-_Flickr_-_PhillipC_%282%29.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=IIDJw6Qb 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_dest_2x/public/2019-04/Port_Levy%2C_Canterbury%2C_New_Zealand%2C_20th._Nov._2010_-_Flickr_-_PhillipC_%282%29.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=Nw2IR11C 2x" media="all and (min-width: 960px) and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_tablet/public/2019-04/Port_Levy%2C_Canterbury%2C_New_Zealand%2C_20th._Nov._2010_-_Flickr_-_PhillipC_%282%29.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=Z8uYrfY6 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_tablet_2x/public/2019-04/Port_Levy%2C_Canterbury%2C_New_Zealand%2C_20th._Nov._2010_-_Flickr_-_PhillipC_%282%29.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=QisnmrWI 2x" media="all and (min-width: 600px) and (max-width: 959px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_mobile/public/2019-04/Port_Levy%2C_Canterbury%2C_New_Zealand%2C_20th._Nov._2010_-_Flickr_-_PhillipC_%282%29.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=ZAWfH0eH 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_mobile_2x/public/2019-04/Port_Levy%2C_Canterbury%2C_New_Zealand%2C_20th._Nov._2010_-_Flickr_-_PhillipC_%282%29.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=Ls7eOHfD 2x" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide/public/2019-04/Port_Levy%2C_Canterbury%2C_New_Zealand%2C_20th._Nov._2010_-_Flickr_-_PhillipC_%282%29.jpg?h=242cd5c8&amp;itok=zT4K9IUv" alt="Canterbury" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </picture> </div> <div class="striping view view-eva view-country-map view-id-country_map view-display-id-entity_view_2 js-view-dom-id-99b0148b40ea8b94e0d268dbb1918c265e13dfe578ec458a236c08a5b2bd6d12"> <div class="views-row"> <div class="category-links"> <div class="views-field views-field-field-country-category-1"><div class="field-content"><span class="small-caps">Category(s):</span></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-country-category"><div class="field-content"><div class="item-list"><ul><li><a href="/taxonomy/term/10" hreflang="en">GEEP Advisory Group</a></li><li><a href="/taxonomy/term/9" hreflang="en">Professional Association</a></li></ul></div></div></div></div> </div> </div> <div class="field-country-policy-practice"><p><strong>National Legislation</strong></p> <p>Although there is no specific mandate for EE within New Zealand there is a guiding national strategy, <a href="http://www.doc.govt.nz/pagefiles/160808/environment-education-strategy-jun98.pdf">Learning to Care for Our Environment: Me Ako ki te Tiaki Taiao</a> (Ministry for the Environment, 1998).

Environmental education and sustainability are positioned as cross-curricular in both of these. Schools are also supported to design and implement environment education in their own school curriculum by the <a href="http://nzcurriculum.tki.org.nz/Curriculum-resources/Education-for-sustainability/Tools-and-resources/Guidelines-for-Environmental-Education-in-New-Zealand-Schools">Guidelines for Environmental Education in New Zealand Schools</a> (Ministry of Education, 1999). In senior secondary school (Years 12-13) <a href="http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/qualifications/ncea/subjects/education-for-sustainability/levels/">Education for Sustainability credits</a> can be gained for Level 1 and 2 of the National Certificate in Educational Achievement (NCEA). In 2015, the <a href="http://www.nzcer.org.nz/">New Zealand Council for Educational Research</a> published an update on <a href="http://www.nzcer.org.nz/research/publications/environmental-education-new-zealand-schools">Environmental Education in New Zealand Schools</a>. Toimata Foundation leads the largest single education for sustainability program in New Zealand: Enviroschools. Over 31% of schools in the country and 85 partner organizations are part of this network.</p> <p><strong>Professional Development</strong></p> <p>There currently is no certification program for environmental educators in New Zealand. There are a wide range of professional development opportunities available for environmental educators, however there is no centralized location from which these can be accessed. Opportunities include the <a href="http://nzaee.org.nz/">New Zealand Association for Environmental Education</a> biennial conference; training workshops run by the <a href="http://www.toimata.org.nz/">Toimata Foundation</a> for the facilitators of the <a href="http://www.enviroschools.org.nz/">Enviroschools</a> and <a href="http://www.toimata.org.nz/about/our-kaupapa/#te-aho-tu-roa">Te Aho Tū Roa</a> programs, who in turn provide professional development opportunities to schools and their communities, as well as multi-day workshops on Education for Sustainability; and workshops offered through the <a href="http://www.trcc.org.nz">Teachers’ Refresher Course Commission (TRCC)</a>. </p></div> <div class="field-country-leadership"><p><strong>EE National Associations</strong></p> <p>The <a href="http://nzaee.org.nz/">New Zealand Association for Environmental Education</a> (NZAEE) is a charitable trust with the focus of educating for sustainability. The association includes a national executive and seven branches. NZAEE has a memorandum of understanding with the <a href="http://www.aaee.org.au/">Australian Association for Environmental Education</a> and affiliation with the UK <a href="http://naee.org.uk/">National Association for Environmental Education</a> (NAEE) and the <a href="https://naaee.org/">North American Association for Environmental Education</a> (NAAEE). New Zealand also participates in the <a href="http://thegeep.org/">Global Environmental Education Partnership</a>.</p> <p><strong>EE in the National Government</strong></p> <p>There is no centralized point coordinating environmental education, however the <a href="http://www.mfe.govt.nz/">Ministry for the Environment</a>, under the <a href="http://www.mfe.govt.nz/more/acts-and-regulations/environment-act-1986">Environment Act 1986</a>, has a function "to provide and disseminate information and services to promote environmental policies, including environmental education and mechanisms for promoting effective public participation in environmental planning". Other government agencies with a role in environmental education include the <a href="http://www.doc.govt.nz/">Department of Conservation</a> and the <a href="http://www.education.govt.nz/">Ministry of Education</a>. The <a href="http://www.pce.parliament.nz/">Office of the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment</a> gives independent advice to government and produced a significant thought piece in 2004 - <a href="http://www.pce.parliament.nz/publications/archive/1997-2006/see-change-learning-and-education-for-sustainability">See Change: Learning and Education for Sustainability</a>.</p> <p><strong>National EE Campaigns and Funding</strong></p> <p>Environmental education is often placed in a web of connections with schools, early childhood settings, tertiary education providers and central government, local government, NGOs, trusts, community groups and businesses. Initiatives are usually reliant on a combination of contestable fixed term funds administered by central and local government, NGOs or trusts. Corporate sponsorship and philanthropic interest is growing.</p></div> <div class="striping view view-eva view-organisations-for-country view-id-organisations_for_country view-display-id-entity_view_1

New Zealand is also working to provide new opportunities for educator professional development, capacity building for EE practitioners and conservation rangers, and increased efforts in developing K-12 students’ leadership skills and action competence.</p></div> Wed, 03 Apr 2019 10:24:23 +0000 admin 137 at https://thegeep.org Botswana https://thegeep.org/learn/countries/botswana Botswana<span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 04/03/2019 - 10:24</span> <div class="field-top-image-for-subpages"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_extra_wide/public/2019-04/A_View_of_the_Delta_0.jpg?h=0a572f9c&amp;itok=PuI7gjbN 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1500px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide/public/2019-04/A_View_of_the_Delta_0.jpg?h=0a572f9c&amp;itok=vEpb-0Qw 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide_2x/public/2019-04/A_View_of_the_Delta_0.jpg?h=0a572f9c&amp;itok=PyoQ9k59 2x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px) and (max-width: 1499px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_desk/public/2019-04/A_View_of_the_Delta_0.jpg?h=0a572f9c&amp;itok=IcFHRNr1 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_dest_2x/public/2019-04/A_View_of_the_Delta_0.jpg?h=0a572f9c&amp;itok=kPJIPuEp 2x" media="all and (min-width: 960px) and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_tablet/public/2019-04/A_View_of_the_Delta_0.jpg?h=0a572f9c&amp;itok=R_8zfSzD 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_tablet_2x/public/2019-04/A_View_of_the_Delta_0.jpg?h=0a572f9c&amp;itok=KOZK-ZZH 2x" media="all and (min-width: 600px) and (max-width: 959px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_mobile/public/2019-04/A_View_of_the_Delta_0.jpg?h=0a572f9c&amp;itok=tGGoXXtf 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_mobile_2x/public/2019-04/A_View_of_the_Delta_0.jpg?h=0a572f9c&amp;itok=V9lxZ-yf 2x" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/subpage_banner_wide/public/2019-04/A_View_of_the_Delta_0.jpg?h=0a572f9c&amp;itok=vEpb-0Qw" alt="Okavango Delta" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </picture> </div> <div class="striping view view-eva view-country-map view-id-country_map view-display-id-entity_view_2 js-view-dom-id-95a408db97b30d32a542a1f441e533d95a8e99df64df226f859d731ce8e42612"> <div class="views-row"> <div class="category-links"> <div class="views-field views-field-field-country-category-1"><div class="field-content"><span class="small-caps">Category(s):</span></div></div><div class="views-field views-field-field-country-category"><div class="field-content"><div class="item-list"><ul><li><a href="/taxonomy/term/10" hreflang="en">GEEP Advisory Group</a></li><li><a href="/taxonomy/term/9" hreflang="en">Professional Association</a></li></ul></div></div></div></div> </div> </div> <div class="field-country-policy-practice"><p><strong>National Policy</strong></p> <p>In Botswana, environmental education is mandated through the <a href="http://www.gov.bw/Global/MoE/Acts/REVISED%20NATIONAL%20POLICY%20ON%20EDUCATION.pdf">Revised National Policy on Education</a> and the <a href="http://pdf.usaid.gov/pdf_docs/PDABK091.pdf">National Policy on Conservation of Natural Resources</a>. Since 1996, the <a href="http://www.gov.bw/en/ministries--authorities/ministries/ministry-of-education-moe/">Ministry of Education</a> has incorporated environmental education into the existing curriculum. In 2003, the Ministry developed Environmental Education Guidelines, which were national goals for EE. The goals include: development of environmental awareness; knowledge and understanding of environmental issues; skills in addressing these issues; and the development of attitudes to protect and preserve the environment. (Ketlhoilwe, 2003)   </p> <p><strong>EE in K-12 Education</strong></p> <p>The Revised National Policy on Education of 1994 introduced environmental education across the curriculum including both primary and secondary levels. In 1997, <a href="http://www.cheetahconservationbotswana.org/news/national-environmental-education-strategy-and-action-plan-neesap-review">the National Environmental Education Strategy and Action Plan (NEESAP)</a> was introduced. Its purpose is to increase environmental awareness through attitudinal change, readiness to learn, opportunities to share experiences, and recognition of traditional systems of managing natural resources.</p> <p><strong>Professional Development</strong></p> <p>Botswana does not have a certification program for environmental education. Through the National Environmental Education Committee based at the <a href="http://www.gov.bw/en/Ministries--Authorities/Ministries/Ministry-of-Environment--Wildlife-and-Tourism/Tools--Services/Ministry-Directory/Departments/Department-of-Environmental-Affairs-DEA/">Department of Environmental Affairs</a>, the country organizes national workshops and periodic national environmental education conferences. In addition, Botswana’s 1994 Revised National Policy on Education of 1994 (RNPE, 1994) recommended that colleges of education in Botswana train teachers in Environmental Education (EE) methodologies. </p></div> <div class="field-country-leadership"><p><strong>National Associations</strong></p> <p>While Botswana does not have its own national environmental education association, the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/www.mewt.gov.bw/">Association of Environmental Clubs of Botswana</a> is a national NGO supported by the government through the Department of Wildlife and National Parks. In addition, Botswana is an affiliate of <a href="http://eeasa.org.za">the Environmental Education Association of Southern Africa (EEASA)</a>, a regional membership association for environmental educators.</p> <p><strong>EE in the National Government</strong></p> <p>Botswana has two national offices that supports environmental education.

However, Russia does not currently include environmental education in the compulsory K-12 curriculum. Many teachers still conduct formal and informal environmental education activities in schools, with support from school supervisors and local authorities. Informally, educators, teachers, and general public in Russia express a strong interest in environmental education.  </p> <p><strong>Professional Development</strong></p> <p>Russia does not have a federal or nation-wide certification program for environmental educators. However, local governments in several regions support environmental education by promoting environmental studies in schools, organizing regional EE conferences for teachers and educators, and organizing educator professional development seminars. For example, in <a href="https://en.tomsk.gov.ru/">Tomsk Region</a> (Western Siberia, Russia), the local Department of Environmental Protection co-organizes biannual EE conference for teachers/educators, often visited by participants from other Russian regions.

In schools, many teachers supplement the compulsory Russian K-12 curriculum with environmental education activities. Regional departments of environmental protection may support environmental education by offering professional development seminars and conferences for educators. Large international environmental NGOs also work to promote environmental education in Russia.</p></div> Wed, 03 Apr 2019 10:24:23 +0000 admin 129 at https://thegeep.org
