In June this year, classes dedicated to the environmental theme, seed distribution, production of posters and recreational activities, attracted the students of Early Childhood Education and Elementary School at Simbios Young, Goiânia.
This whole scenario, which inspires more sustainable practices in the families’ routine, also sets the tone for what is being prepared for the Institution’s Scientific and Cultural Exhibition.
The action is scheduled to take place in September and will be entirely focused on delivering projects and sustainability initiatives.
Inspiration for exhibition
The Coordinator of Elementary Education Anos Iniciais (1st to 5th grade), Luma Santos, says that the inspiration came from UNESCO, which elected 2022 as the International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development.
Carried out in a playful way, the program seeks to raise the awareness of the little ones so that respect and care for the environment become natural in their routine, generating a sense of belonging and responsibility for the community in which they live.
‘Nature part of people’s lives’
Thus, teachers have taken to the classroom practical examples of how nature is part of people’s daily lives, showing how it is possible to preserve it.
“By placing sustainability at the center of the debate, we wish to raise critical awareness in all areas: environmental, ethical, economic, political and social. In this way, we managed to make the teaching-learning process even more meaningful for the lives of our students,” observes Luma.
Spokespersons for environment
The goal is for children to be spokespersons for a new generation concerned with the importance of the environment, as, by becoming aware, they can replicate information at home and in other living spaces.
“Their engagement has been exciting for us. I see that they are really committed and involved in the actions. We can expect a very rich Scientific and Cultural Exhibition,” says Luma.
