Ecological Literacy

It has been three years since Yuva Association within Earth Citizenship Program started ecological literacy trainings. Within the scope of Ecological Literacy Trainings, hundreds of youngsters and adults participated in advanced educational camps and teacher trainings. Istanbul, Tunceli, Ankara, Samsun, Bandırma, Van, Izmir, Antalya and Trabzon are among 17 provinces where we have carried out over 90 trainings and fostered thousands of young and adult environmental ambassadors.

In Koşuyolu Training Center, which was established in November last year, we continue to reach out to youngsters and adults with environmental literacy workshops. In the course of two days, using non-formal education methods such as drama and story-telling, we talk about natural cycles that allow existence of life on earth, problems that our world faces and possible solutions. In the last day, all the participants share acquired knowledge and ways how to decrease environmental footprint especially in urban areas. This way we contribute to the formation of active citizens who make effort to solve problems around them.
