Τhe environmental awareness programs, implemented by ANATOLIKI SA in the framework of the project "Change the power - (Εm) power to change: Local Authorities towards the SDGs and Climate Justice", have been completed.
The environmental awareness programs implemented by ANATOLIKI SA in the framework of the project "Change the power - (em) power to change: Local Authorities towards the SDGs and Climate Justice" co-financed DEAR programme, were successfully completed for the second time. The programs were implemented in five Municipalities: Thessaloniki, Kalamaria, Thermi, Pylaia - Chortiatis and Thermaikos. They were targeted to preschool children, with the necessary contribution of their teachers.
The Educational Program is the continuation of the activities that took place in 2018. They started with a relevant communication with the heads of the Municipal kindergartens, who indicated the kindergartens that would participate. The educators of the kindergartens attended relevant training, which took place in ANATOLIKIs headquarters, from October 2019 to January 2020. Specifically, they attended a two-hour training seminar on the tools presented in the Manual - Worksheets. The updates were aimed at bringing together educators and, consequently, preschool children with the subject of environmental protection. The thematics on which educators and children were trained were three:
- rational water management,
- food waste reduction
- and rational energy management.
In total, 21 kindergartens of the aforementioned Municipalities, 740 children and 58 educators participated in the program this year.
Trying to mobilize and reward children as well as give educators educational tools that enhance their sense of participation, ANATOLIKI SA designed and produced stamps and a printed Weekly Performance Chart for children to record their environmentally friendly behaviors on the 3thematics. For each environmentally friendly activity, each child won a stamp of the appropriate thematic unit. The response of educators and children was enthusiastic and ANATOLIKI SA would like to thank both of them warmly!
