ENGAGING YOUNG PEOPLE AND GUINEA-BISSAU COMMUNITIES IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES.

ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION PROGRAMME

NSEF strives to provide quality environmental education programme for young people mainly in the countryside, by developing modern state-of-the-art self-sufficient educational buildings in the local communities.

On its mission NSEF is pioneering work in the field of ecological education at an early age which aims at empowering children and young adults to improve our natural environment.

NSEF is developing the first eco-schools in Guinea-Bissau. The Foundation also intends to have a crucial involvement in the process of revision and actualization of the Development of National Environment Educational Strategy, as well as later integration in the operational development of environmental education programmes in the Public national schools.

What do we do about the environmental education?

The Foundation uses the following environmental educational programmes from Foundation for Environmental Education:

  • work towards sustainable development of beaches and marinas;
  • a network of international youth engaged in environmental journalism and Education for Sustainable Development;
  • a programme designed for schools, which reflects all the functions forest fulfil for people, from economic and ecological to social and cultural;
  • and to increase the use of environmentally friendly and sustainable methods, together with raising awarness and creating behavioural changes.
