Environmental Awareness

‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.’

Margaret Mead

Education around the environment is a process that allows individuals to:

  • Explore environmental issues,
  • Engage in problem solving, and
  • Take action to improve the environment.

This results in individuals developing a deeper understanding of environmental issues and having the skills to make informed and responsible decisions.
