Future Friendly Schools - Environmental Stewardship

What makes a Future Friendly School? Through this participatory process, you will help to identify and prioritize the most relevant indicators for certification across our three focus areas of environmental stewardship, student voice, and global citizenship. We appreciate your participation and look forward to your insights! This page is for voting, commenting on, and suggesting new indicators in the area of environmental stewardship. You can switch to the other certification indicators through the links in the header. If you’re interested in partnership or participating as a founding school in the program, contact us at education@takingitglobal.org!

  3. Children should be taught about the environment based on the local realities

    Teaching the children about protecting the environment should be based on local realities. When you tell the child if you cut down trees it may result to desertification show them a local example. If you tell a child in the village bush burning destroys the environment show he or she a practical example in his community.

  4. Teach the 3R's, in order!

    There's a reason that recycling comes third, and yet it seems to be the 'R' that most people think of first. If we teach students to reduce their consumption and reuse what they can from a young age there will be hope for a less consumeristic generation. Schools should track energy and water consumption and make goals for reducing them. If teachers were to present this information to students daily, this could motivate them to shut down computers when not in use, turn off lights when they leave a room, be more conservative with their water use etc. The importance…

  12. the children should be the center of focus in environmental education

    The adults have failed to protect the environment, we are so greedy to the extend we know we are destroying the environment but we still do it because we need these factories that emits huge amount of carbon dioxide just to manufacture products. we fell down trees for timber just to mane a few. Some of these acts the adults do day is because they came and met and were not told the disadvantages. If we teach the children and they know this we shall have a greater probability of building a generation that protect and conserve the environment tomorrow…

  13. Expose even the youngest ones to the environment. Create awareness of caring for the environment and the consequences of not.

    We need to create an atmosphere where the child is exposed to the environment from a very early age and grows up knowing what the environment is, how to care for it and what the consequences are for not caring for it. It shouldn't be a subject like literacy or numeracy but an active part of the education like character building. This way the child will learn and naturally find themselves showing a sensitivity to the environment and its needs.

  18. Improving health through environmental stewardship

    Students should be educated on the need for cleanliness of their surroundings. Health education is essential in every educational endeavour. At least one professional public health worker should be assigned to every school to see to the health needs of the students. Many diseases children contract from their peers can be avoidable if someone was there to educate these children on some important health issues.

    On this note, I will say teachers must also learn more on health to help their students in satisfying their health needs for health is not only the absence of diseases but also a complete…

  19. Teach youth about climate governance

    Very important to teach at this moment young people about climate change and climate governance so we can make sure to protect our future. Time is up do it and this initiative is promoted by youth in the greenbits initiative. As a focal point of this initiative, I think that you can reach them to get more news about what they are doing right now. (Posted by an environmental journalist in DRCongo)

  20. Ocean Conservation is taught in classes.

    A strong area of focus on ocean awareness and conservation is present, including trips to coastal areas and informed food choice education. Students learn about different issues that affect the ocean, how integral oceans are for the future of humanity, and what we can do to repair them and conserve them.
