Project Title:

We Care for our Future

Project Duration:

Project Objectives:

"We Care for our future" project aims to increase youth awareness on environmental issues, especially the right to a healthy environment, using the knowledge center as a base to conduct the project activities.

The project was implemented on a three years round where the first phase included the founding of education and awareness module on the right for a healthy environment, especially for marine life, within the school curricular and extracurricular activities. The second phase involved establishing eco- clubs within the participated schools, and implementing the educational module formulated in the first phase. The project ends up with developing communication materials and conducting workshops related to environment.
