We are developing a curriculum that local educators can implement in their schools and communities as part of informal education.
The activities include: interactive games, storytelling, up-cycling arts & crafts, puppet theatre, drama, documentary film watching, experiments, composting, gardening, tree planting, cooking, bird watching, field trips, beach/river clean-ups, etc.
We believe that the frontal style of teaching is outdated. Therefore, our games and activities, based on experiential learning, are interactive and fun and use a positive approach. The lesson plan follows a three-phased learning scheme: Evocation – Realization of meaning – Reflection.
The curriculum is split into several educational programs with a wide range of interesting and important eco-topics — from pollution and climate change to biodiversity and conservation. The pilot “Zero Waste School Program”” covers marine pollution and reducing single-use plastic, explores waste separation and bio decomposition of organic waste versus inorganic waste, and health risks posed by plastic packaging and incineration.
