Title: Sustainable Environmental Education Program in Primary Schools in Uganda
The Jane Goodall Institute in cooperation with the government has established an environmental education program for primary schools in Uganda. The main objective of the program is to enable holistic and sustainable environmental education in the region surrounding the national park. Only if such awareness for environment is achieved among peoples, will programs to protect species be understood by the people and succeed. The children, who are the parents of the next generation, should become the guardians of an intact environment and should guarantee its conservation.
