Last month, think tanks convened in various schools throughout the “Regional Sustainability Partnership” to develop proposals for educational projects that promote regional sustainable management. The proposals cover a range of issues from open landscape conservation to establishing platforms for advancing the local economy. These proposals will be submitted to the education and community department’s joint call for proposals to obtain support and assistance for facilitating their execution.
The education system has an important role in shaping policy, changing behavioral standards and fostering civil responsibility for environmental conservation. The call for environmental education projects creates an opportunity for students and teaching staff to gain a deeper understanding of their nearby physical and human social environment and to be partners in a regional project for a better present and future.
Additional educational institutions from Zihkron Ya’akov, Binyamina-Givat Ada, Alona Regional Council, Jasr A-Zarka, Ma’ayan Zvi, Beit Hanania, and Ma’agan Michael have also been invited to fulfil a dream with their own project – think globally, act locally.
The deadline for submitting project proposals is 16/1/16.
