EPI Presents Education Model to UNESCO

In August 2016, 47 UNESCO World Heritage Marine Site Mangers from 36 countries convened in Galapagos for their annual conference. Their goal this year was to share management successes and best practices and position their flagship Marine Protected Areas as models for others around the world.

EPI had a unique invitation to contribute to the conversation at the conference. At a session on Education on Sustainability, EPI Galapagos staff shared our education model that aims to create an environmentally literate society through hands-on and inquiry-based field programs. Marine Site Managers heard from staff, youth in EPI’s Mola Mola Eco-club, and from our main partner, the Galapagos National Park. The presentation coincided with a field visit to the Tomas de Berlanga School which is developing a model of sustainability education.

According to leaders from Galapagos Conservancy who organized the session on Education on Sustainability, EPI’s presentation was the best! Recently, Galapagos Conservancy asked EPI Galapagos, in collaboration with The Ministry of Education, to join their formal training program for local teachers. The training provides teachers with the tools and learning to teach sustainability education in their classrooms.
