‘The conference was a great opportunity to meet other EE people. I have already followed up with emails to all who I met in the breakout groups, and there are some plans being made to keep in touch more regularly.’
Many believe we have lost a lot of the connections we had with nature just a few decades ago. This disconnect prevents us from appreciating the impacts of our actions on the environment – such as through climate change and plastic pollution – as well as the ability to rethink future alternatives. Sadly, it is often the poor who feel these effects most acutely as many rely on natural resources for their everyday needs, and economic hardships caused by COVID-19 are increasing these pressures.
We believe muddy hands and nature encounters are fundamental to environmental conservation - whether that’s by teaching young Ugandans how to grow vegetables in sacks or exploring rockpools with Kenyan students. With projects in 21 countries, each designed to meet local needs, the contexts and range of A Rocha’s environmental education (EE) activities are diverse. A Rocha International gives training and provides opportunities to share best practice and lessons learned among EE practitioners.
