Last updated:2008-04-24 00:00:00

The aim of this project is to pilot training and organisation of teachers in rural areas in Environmental Education (EE)activities. The project is being conducted in the south of Lao PDR and is working towards educating teachers in environmental issues, biodiversity, conservation principles and designing a extra-curricular, school based EE programs. EE activities emphasise the link between local livelihoods and environmental quality and provide low cost, hands on methods of presenting EE to students that are both practical and relevant to everyday lives. WWF has worked with the Participatory Development & Education Training Center (PADETC), the National University of Lao (through the Mobile Conservation Unit) and the Department of Water Resources and Environmental Awareness (WREA) to develop and deliver training to teachers and village representatives. The project has also drawn on EE resources produced by CUSO (in Lao language), WWF and other organisations from around the world. The project forms part of two existing WWF Projects, the Biodiversity Corridors Initiative (BCI) and the Xe Pian Eco-tourism Project. The target area is in the Phatoumphone District of Champasak.
