"Church and NGOs for environmental education in national parks"
Venue and time of the Conference: Ukraine, Trankarpathian region, Khust district, village of Synevyr-Ostriky, 1626, visit — center of Synevyr National Nature Park, November 02-06, 2021.
The project aims to spread the idea of the value and protection of the Carpathians' nature as an important component of the European continent's nature among youth and locals through the common efforts of religious organizations, NGOs, educational institutions and local governments in Transcarpathia. The development of appropriate methods in educational institutions will ensure the sustainability, multiplication and duration of the project results.
An important result is the development and approval of a children's environmental education program for indirect influence on the inhabitants of environmentally protected areas and their involvement in the protection of the Carpathians' nature. This will complete the national education program for sustainable development in local secular and religious schools, strengthen cooperation with teachers and the church in the village, increase knowledge of ecologists and national parks, and serve as an example of community cohesion.
