and more practical training and strategies are required for students.
we propose to strengthen existing environmental clubs and establish new ones in
150 secondary schools among 2,500 students.
The project will deliver learning strategies that involve students in
practical tasks and motivate them to learn and apply circular economy and
‘waste hierarchy’ concepts. They will learn how to keep their school safer, and

exchange such as debates with other schools, field trips, practical activities (e.g.
tree planting, cleanups), and pre- post-initiative tests. This project will
inspire students to become more interested in environmental protection and
provide teachers and schools with opportunities to learn about various ways to
engage their students in environmental education.

clubs with hand-on and practical experiences that allows them to perform
activities on their own beyond the timelines of the project; 2) equipping
environmental teachers per school with various strategies and sessions to
engage their students in environmental education; 3) conducting monitoring and
evaluation of the project three months after the project is finished in each
school; and 4) fostering additional government and school support on
