School children, representative of the Regional Government and Noga Shanee of NPCOn Tuesday 10th, we officially launched our new Environmental Education school text book “Nuestra Selva y su Sentir”.  The event, held in the Chachapoyas municipality, was attended by representatives of the local government, university and ministry of education as well as students and teachers from local schools. After the event we began distributing free copies of the text book to local schools and will continue to do so over the next few months. The aim is to have copies of this book used in the curriculum throughout Amazonas and San Martin.  

With the publication of this book we have tried to fill a gap in how the environmental sciences are taught in rural areas with chapters covering a wide range of subjects focusing on local environmental realities. We are also in discussion with the ministry of Education and the Universidad Nacional Toribio Rodriguez de Mendoza to begin work on a second edition of the text with an even broader scope that will hopefully be suitable for use throughout Peru’s Amazonian regions. The book can be downloaded from the publications section of this site in PDF.
