One of the most important aspects of encouraging people to live in a more environmentally friendly manner is to teach the next generation about why it’s important. School children will inherit the planet that’s left to them, and by educating them about why and how they can live sustainably, green spaces around the world can only benefit.
As an Environmental Education volunteer, you’ll visit schools delivering presentations about marine litter, coastal protection, freshwater ecosystems and restoring waterways. You’ll be speaking to students who range in age from 5-18, educating them about the current state of the environment and why it’s important to maintain an eco-friendly lifestyle.
Along with delivering presentations, you also have the option of designing and running workshops for schools at the local team’s unique education venue. These workshops are a chance to be creative and practical, and can involve presentations, making reusable bags, upcycling, tree planting, coastal clean-ups, gardening or any other conservation-based activity you can think of.
You don’t have to be an experienced teacher to participate in this project - as long as you’re organised and comfortable speaking in front of groups of students, you’ll be a great addition to the team.
This project is an awesome opportunity to take the lead on executing an environmental education campaign from start to finish; from liaising with teachers and booking in presentations, to reporting results and debriefing team members. Training and support will be provided by the local team at every stage.
Please note, this project has a minimum duration requirement of 3 weeks.Apply now
