Environmental education is at the core of everything we do.

We place environmental education at the centre of our work because it is one of the most important tools in our toolkit for addressing the interconnected ecological and social challenges of our times.

As highlighted by UNESCO, “Education, in short, is humanity’s best hope and most effective means in the quest to achieve sustainable development.”
