Workshop Title: Eco Literacy and Our Place in This World
Through the Eco-Library program, books are provided about nature and environment for children in Indonesia. Eco-Library is the first step toward the eco-literacy goal, aimed for the children to have a better understanding of their place in this world – how all elements of nature, including us, humans, are interconnected and how our lifestyles impact them. Implemented together with eco-educational games and activities, we hope the children will embrace sustainable lifestyles.
