Embracing the youth of today, preparing the leaders of tomorrow.
Environmental education is an integral part of conservation. Young generations are not yet fully rooted in certain traditions and are generally more open to embrace new ideas. They are also the most effective ambassadors within their own families and communities. It is very gratifying working with youth and often not at all dificult to get them excited and fascinated about nature and wildlife. Integrating an environmental awareness early on in their life, both through formal education as through informal events, is key. I am familiar with developing and integrating environmental education in schooling programmes both at primary and secondary level, organising environmental camps, as well as designing and implementing environmental campaigns.
