Situation

Since humans began farming the land more than 10,000 years ago, our activities have been impacting the planet. Whether out of ignorance, apathy, greed or desperation, we continue to pollute the air, overfish the seas and destroy the forests, driving species to the brink of extinction. But at A Rocha we believe there is hope because we’re learning to look at the world with new eyes: seeing the world not as a bottomless pool of resources, but as a precious gift to take care of and use wisely.

Solution

We believe that getting people to engage directly with the world around them is fundamental to environmental conservation - whether that’s rockpooling with Kenyan students or planting trees with Syrian refugees. With projects in 20 different countries, each one designed to meet local needs, the contexts and range of A Rocha’s EE activities can be highly diverse. A Rocha International gives training and provides opportunities for sharing best practice and lessons learned among EE practitioners.
