Environmental Education in Peru

For two weeks we have been enjoying the start of our latest environmental education program in rural schools in Uchiza and Saposoa, Peru. The program is running in primary and secondary schools, through workshops focused on biodiversity conservation; using varied activities including painting, theatre, reading, games, stories, and group discussions, among others. The program is designed to promote awareness of the importance of caring for and preserving the different ecosystems that surround the villages, whilst taking into account the reality that each student lives.
