informing about ways to protect our environment
Our environmental education is a process that allows individuals to explore environmental issues, engage in problem solving, and take action to improve the environment. As a result, individuals develop a deeper understanding of environmental issues and have the skills to make informed and responsible decisions.
The components of our educational program are:
Awareness and sensitivity to the environment and environmental challenges
Knowledge and understanding of the environment and environmental challenges
Attitudes of concern for the environment and motivation to improve or maintain environmental quality
Skills to identify and help resolve environmental challenges
Participation in activities that lead to the resolution of environmental challenges
Our environmental education does not advocate a particular viewpoint or course of action. Rather, environmental education teaches individuals how to weigh various sides of an issue through critical thinking and it enhances their own problem-solving and decision-making skills.
We want to:
Provides facts about environmental issues
Increases public awareness and knowledge of environmental issues
teach individuals critical-thinking
enhance individuals' problem-solving and decision-making skills
AJPER has designed an educational program for young people in especially endangered regions of Madagascar, such as the south-west, where children and adults get sensitized and informed about ways to protect our nature through the introduction of new agricultural methods and the reforestation of bare land.
