Education is the most important step toward creating a sustainable future, and it is for this reason that SAEP ensures that children who learn through our programmes are given an environmental education.
Through our Environmental Education Programme, we aim to foster a sense of environmental responsibility in learners and make sure they are aware of the risks associated with unsustainable environmental practices. Through integrating environmental education into our programmes, we aim to create learners who are mindful of the environment from an early age.
Learners are taught how to positively affect their surroundings through discussions on topics from recycling, biodiversity and energy to careers in conservation. We aim to provide the learners with a higher level of consciousness and a sense of appreciation of the natural environment, while shaping and instilling a passion for conserving natural areas and decreasing our carbon footprint.
