ECOTIC adapts ecological education for the online environment

de | April. 29, 2020 | News

Under the slogan "We keep our distance, but we stay united for a clean environment!" ECOTIC continues the awareness actions addressed to the little ones and especially students, in the online environment.

In the current context, of the Covid-19 pandemic, when we are all obliged to keep our distance to be safe, we continue to emphasize the clean environment and education for environmental protection, this time through online communication channels, Facebook, Instagram and Youtube ECOTIC's efforts support children, parents and teachers who need ideas and adapted materials to continue ecological education at home.

The School of Ecoterrians continues online

One of the ECOTIC projects that continues online is the "School of Ecoterrians". Students will benefit from ecological education lessons in video format that they will be able to watch in the comfort of their own homes. The lessons have both a theoretical and a practical component that they can do at home. The video materials will be available on the organization's YouTube page and beyond.

LIVE Storytelling – Eco-educative stories

Using online communication channels, we will develop several activities with educational and awareness purposes. One of these will be the LIVE sessions on the Facebook page of the ECOTIC organization in which we will read stories with ecological themes for the little ones. Starting from the middle of April, the little ambassadors of the environment will have the chance to learn more about the ECOTIC mascot, the Ecoterrian, through stories.

To follow the live readings or to review the previous readings, we invite you to access the Facebook page of the ECOTIC Organization

VIDEO – Creative recycling ideas

And because it is a good opportunity to be creative, parents and children can learn to do creative recycling projects, thus giving a new life to the various materials or objects they have around the house. This is a useful and recreational activity that informs the public about the possibilities of reuse and a constructive way of spending free time.

You can see the creative recycling spots on the organization's YouTube page:


Inspiration for eco education

The online awareness campaign started by posting inspirational elements such as articles, video spots or different study materials focused on environmental protection in general and separate collection and recycling, in particular.

One of the most important online materials disseminated during this period is the "Environmental protection and selective collection manual". It presents practical aspects about the separate collection and recycling of all types of waste, with clear examples of what is recyclable and what is not, a small dictionary with the most frequently encountered terms in the field of environmental protection, and, last but not least, a small compendium with the most important legislative provisions. Interested persons can access it

It is important during this period not to forget that we can take care of the environment through small but important gestures, right at home: reuse, separate collection of waste, efficient consumption of water and energy and many others.

To be aware of all these activities and learn more about how we ourselves can protect the environment, we invite you to follow si
