Toolkit to sensitise students on environmental issues

The Ministry of Social Security, National Solidarity and Environment and Sustainable Development has launched a toolkit on good environmental practices for lower secondary students.

The toolkit is aimed at encouraging students to bring about changes in their attitudes towards nature and raising awareness on the need to adopt a sustainable lifestyle for the preservation of the environment. It covers topics such as tree planting, solid waste management, climate change, air pollution, water stress, energy use, biodiversity and sustainable lifestyle.

Through the toolkit, students learn about environmental challenges and simple actions that they can adopt at school, at home and in their locality to safeguard our environment. The Information and Education (IE) Division of the Ministry of Social Security, National Solidarity and Environment and Sustainable Development is involved in raising awareness of the student community through talks, meetings and display of short clips on the topics covered in the toolkit. In 2017, some 15 schools were sensitised and for this year some 30 schools are being targeted
