Raising awareness from an early age.
Although biodiversity-related issues have been in the collective consciousness for more than forty years, it is necessary to think about education and acculturation among the youngest. In France, biodiversity education has become a priority in view of the degradation of biological diversity. In primary school, it is linked to both science subjects and sustainable development. In the school curriculum, the expected learning related to it essentially follows two dimensions: bio-ecological knowledge and the expected behaviours related to this knowledge. Working with schools is part of IUCN’s mission, as was the case with the competition organised for 400 classes in 2020 prior to the postponement of the congress to investigate biodiversity near their school.
And that’s what we’re continuing to do in 2021 to keep children interested with this great article from Mickey’s newspaper.
