Institute of Ecological & Religious Studies would like to inform you about the upcoming international conference within the framework of the NABU project ” Church and NGOs for environmental education in national parks”, which is being implemented with the support of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
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 approbation of children’s environmental education program for indirect influence on the inhabitants of environmentally protected areas, their involvement in the protection of the Carpathians’ nature. This will fill up the national education program for sustainable development in local, secular, and religious schools, strengthen the cooperation based on the teachers’ authority and the Church in the village, NGO activity, knowledge of ecologists, National Parks, and that will be an example of community cohesion.
