Environmental orientated school and projects in the Baikal region

Six Buryatian schools with their environmental projects to the topic "Water is Life" are to be seen with six schools from Buryatia on this big collective poster (DIN A0), which will be distributed from February 2007 on in Buryatia and Osnabrück in order to popularize this common project of intercultural environmental education.

This poster is supposed to be the trigger for the Construction of a network of academic environmental projects and schools in Osnabrück and Buryatia with the focus on intercultural environmental education. Via the website interested environmentally orientated schools can make contact. We are also planning more mutual visits of the teachers and the pupils after our first successful realizations which took place in November 2007 in Osnabrück and in August/September in Buryatia.

„Water is Life“ is a first main topic of our cooperation between the workshop for environmental education of the local agenda 21 Osnabrück in Germany and the Baikal information centre GRAN in Ulan-Ude in the Russian Republic Buryatia, that also concerns out-of-school institutions. Thereby we want to make a contribution to the UN Decade education for sustainable development (2005-2014) and to the worldwide interregional network Globo:log, in which network projects from four continents collaborate.

A second common topic is Our food/Local food, which started in automn 2007.

Apart from the schools on the poster, other interested schools are also given the opportunity to present their projects and activities which are orientated on environmental education or on education for sustainable development. Of course this is also valid for schools and projects on the web page of Osnabrück.
