The Environment

This supplement was created in response to the overwhelming need for material that educates young people on environmental issues. The aim of this supplement is for participants to reflect on how their habits and actions affect the environment around them, and to positively influence their abilities to take action against the growing environmental challenges related to pollution and waste. This programme  encourages participants to critically think of the ways to reduce, reuse and recycle waste in their local communities.

Each Thematic Supplement is designed to be taken in 6-10 additional courses to complement Aflatoun’s core curricula, and compiles essential activities about a specific topic aimed at different age groups of children, young people and their caregivers. The user may choose the activities that meet their needs. Ideally, the activities under each section can be done sequentially, but if needed and if some sessions were already covered in other occasions, the activities can be done as stand-alone activities. All supplements can be used in formal or non-formal education settings.

The supplement was funded by The Botnar Foundation and Vitol Foundation and were developed based on the results of a consultation with partners in the Aflatoun network.
