Africa Foundation in consultation with the communites, education bodies and our partner has designed an Environmental Education programme – simply known as ‘Echo’ for the resonance it has across peoples lives. Creating environmentally conscious communites is of great importance to achieving this balance and environmental education is the tool we use to get there.
Key messages are brought to life in the classroom through structured and curriculum- integrated conservation lessons followed up with field- based practical exposure that immerses learners in the ways of the wild. The game drive experience also helps to expose learners to the socio-economic benefits available to them through ecotourism.
In our partner communities in Botswana, the Echo programme has become embedded into the school curriculum through primary and into secondary schools. Our Community and Conservation rangers support the delivery of environmental education lessons and practical workshops in schools, and enhanced by experiential field trips into the local conservation areas enabled through Africa Foundations partnership with andBeyond. The trips are led by the Community and Conservation Rangers as well as, qualified guides, who provide students with a memorable and deep- learning experience, with touchpoints to their classroom activities.
