Raising Environmental Awareness in Schools

A scheme drawn up by the Department of Environment to add environmental education to the curricula of schools nationwide could go into effect as early as September 22 (beginning of the new academic year), according to DOE chief, Massoumeh Ebtekar. The official was quoted as saying by PANA that her department is working closely with the Ministry of Education to fast track the implementation of the scheme in 110,000 schools across Iran. “Students and teachers can help address our environmental problems,” Ebtekar said, adding that the scheme will help educators and students develop a deeper understanding of ecological processes and understand the importance of environmental conservation. Last year, as part of the plans for environmental education, the ministry introduced 60 environment schools (known as JAM Schools in Persian) with the collaboration of DOE.
