Ecology Note - From Critical Thinking to Critical Action

エコロジーノート - クリティカルシンキングからクリティカルアクションへ

In order to address and respond to emerging environmental issues, it is important to encourage all stakeholders to take responsible and collaborative actions through education including awareness raising and capacity development. In the field of waste management, education plays a critical roles to establish the 3Rs (reduce, reuse and recycle) practices and more sustainable consumption patterns to prevent waste generation and achieve proper waste management. Especially, it is important to empower the young generation through environmental education to take responsible decision and actions from the early stage of life. Therefore, alongside providing support for proper waste management, CCET has been helping develop environmental education programs and materials for the partner countries in Asia including Myanmar, Cambodia and Bhutan.

In this context, CCET’s educational material “Ecology Note” was adopted to nationwide Bhutanese elementary schools on the request of the National Environment Commission (NEC) Bhutan based on the local context of the country including their daily custom, lifestyle, and Gross National Happiness (GNH).

Based on CCET’s experience in waste management, Ecology Note was designed to provide opportunities to develop a sense of ownership and responsibility, and aims at fostering the ability to identify and analyse the issues, find the optimal solution through employing collaborative and self-motivated activities such as exploration, discussion, and presentation with the underlying concept of active learning approach. The booklet also supports to deepen student’s understanding on sustainable waste and resource management topics including waste prevention, composting, and 3Rs in general.

In this webinar, the presentation and discussion will focus on 1) how environmental education can be designed by the government and city, 2) how it can be effectively implemented through active learning approach toward making critical actions and transformation for sustainable development, and 3) how international cooperation and mutual learning among countries and cities can enhance meaningful education approach.
