The value of biodiversity cannot be estimated and it constitutes a country’s unique treasure. It is also a heavy duty for each generation to be able to submit it to the following generations intact and perhaps better. The protection of biodiversity has to be everyone’s concern and involve all related disciplines. Education is a key factor for branding biodiversity its holistic character. To meet with this challenge it is therefore necessary for education to adjust its programmes and facilitate the integration of all biodiversity facets in the school curriculum and lateral activities
Children of Rwanda, the future decision makers, are increasingly disengaged from the natural world. Often they don't have the tools to make knowledgeable decisions about the natural resources of their country. In light of this, Rwanda Biodiversity Media Group (RBMG) has identified Conservation education 4KIDS as a strategic way of connecting kids with the nature through their educators; engaging them in stewardship activities; and increasing their perception on the biodiversity and their habitats. This 3-year, multi-partner, comprehensive project will focus on an innovative, integrated conservation education program for educators with may be extended to secondary schools if applicable, with amount of funds available. This project will increase conservation education capacity through professional development trainings for educators and volunteers; creating CE4K specific teaching materials such as documentary films, posters, pictures, etc..; and developing service-learning programming. This project will be implemented in 15 primary schools and work with more than 150 educators, impact 170.000 students.
The present project aims to link kids, educators, with the nature by providing wildlife-based conservation and environmental education that fosters responsible actions toward wildlife and related natural resources. Through the use of different methods and materials, the project will prepare effective and appropriate communication and education products such as documentary films, flyers, posters, stories, and Picture about the nature, to accomplish the goal of developing awareness, skills, knowledge, and commitment. This will result in the making of informed decisions, responsible behavior, and constructive action concerning biodiversity and the environment.
