Falconbridge Foundation launches environmental education in public schools
Santo Domingo.- The Falconbridge Foundation and local organizations work to develop methodology to support national efforts to implementing environmental education strategies in the country’s education system.
In an emailed statement, Falconbridge Foundation executive director Arelis M. Rodriguez made the announcement, and said the first meeting will gather all organizations working in the field of environmental education to be apprised of all the initiatives being carried out across the country.
“The Foundation began supporting such programs two years ago in public schools sponsored by the institution in Monseñor Noel and La Vega provinces, where the activities have been developed jointly with the Canadian organization, Learning for a Sustainable Future (LSF),” the executive said.
“This system is transforming the education system in Canada through innovative programs that provide young people and educators the opportunity to create environmentally sustainable communities and what we want to achieve that good practice, not just in Monseñor Noel and La Vega, but the entire national education system,” she said.
Rodriguez added that the alliance aims to raise awareness on issues related to environment and sustainable development, through a combination of classroom practices and community action.
