GWP CACENA Engages Young People in Water Education

Posted: 2013-10-17

GWP Armenia and GWP Turkmenistan have conducted several projects focused on schools. The purpose is to engage more young people in water resources management.

In Armenia, a five-day training session was held to raise awareness among senior high school students. The students were informed about water challenges and learned how they can get involved in water resources management.

The training outlined the need and importance of water resources protection – for current and future generations – and the human right to water and sanitation. Water quality indicators were also explained. The training was conducted in the Hamo Sahyan school in Yerevan and all students received training materials and certificates.

"Green Pack" is a multimedia resource providing environmental education for secondary school teachers and schoolchildren aged 11-15.

The meeting took place in Ashgabat at the end of August, and the participants discussed “Green Pack” as a tool for promoting water issues in Turkmenistan.  The tool, which can also be used at other educational levels, is oriented to studying various aspects of environmental protection and sustainable development.

Among the participants were representatives from Turkmenistan’s Ministry of Environment Protection, the Institute for teachers’ advanced training, secondary schools, international agencies, as well as national and international NGOs, and environmental businesses.

The "Green Pack" educational resources will be tested in October-November 2013, with a series of information workshops on water themes planned for school teachers.
