GREEN SCHOOLS: Greening Malaysia in the Classrooms
The younger generation and their future generations will be directly affected by the consequences of climate change, and teachers are one of our first lines of defence in mitigating this crisis
Knowing that there is already lot to bear on teachers’ shoulders, the Kuala Lumpur Architecture Festival 2020 in collaboration with Malaysia Green Building Council are pleased to launch a series of teach-in videos, to help the teachers on this subject in the classroom--and outside it, too
From hands-on projects to personal responsibility, the tips, projects, and concepts outlined in these videos will approach learning about environmental issues with fun and interactive games; starting with the built environments where they live, learn and play in
This can also be as simple as opening the eyes of a child to the used in their schools and homes, to helping students calculate the carbon footprints of their trips to schools, and eventually possibly building their own solar equipment
Regardless of budget or whether the schools are in urban, suburban, or rural settings; teachers can choose this call to arms to inspire their students to green the environment.
Remember that in a few short years, this generation will decide the fate of this planet.
