Title: Training Teachers to Teach Environmental Issues
Schools in a bad economic situation cannot give students and the population a proper education on environmental issues. Therefore the association “Ciudadania Solidaria” started carrying out the program “Ayuda a escuelas carecientes” three years ago to help them. The project tries to transfer content and methodology regarding environmental aspects as they are energy, water, recycling and air pollution through a teacher training program to improve their skills in environmental education. The key issue for the success of the program is to bring people to a certain point of understanding of the benefits of renewable energy and sustainable development for their private lives.
