In the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, environmental education became a need in Bekaa communities. ‘Faker Bi2iyan’ seized this moment as an opportunity to actively reshape Lebanon’s environmental landscape and birthed “The Eco-Friendly Hero” program.
The Eco-Friendly Hero isn’t just a program; it’s a movement. Tailored for school environments and recreational settings, its primary aim is to instill genuine environmental ethics in children and youth. Going beyond the realm of theoretical knowledge, we aspire to nurture participants to embrace a value system that shapes their daily choices, actions, and broader life perspectives.
Key Focus Areas Include:
Youth are the heartbeat of MDF’s development strategy and the driving force behind Faker Bi2iyan’s vision. Our youth-centric programs are designed to foster a deep connection with nature — from clean-up campaigns and hiking adventures to outdoor environmental rallies and sorting campaigns. Collaborating with a diverse community of youth-centric entities, including scouts, environmental forums, NGOs, clubs, and municipalities, ensures the far-reaching impact of our programs.
Summer Camp Edition
Recognizing the pivotal role of summer in shaping young minds, the summer version of the Eco-Friendly Hero program zeroes in on summer camps and clubs, placing a strong emphasis on nurturing environmental values.
Environmental Education: Beyond the Textbook
The Essence of Environmental Education transcends the boundaries of any single subject. It’s a philosophy, a way of life that an educational institution embraces and imparts. Through this holistic approach, students don’t just accumulate knowledge; they refine critical life skills like decision-making, effective communication, and creativity.
Why Schools Choose the Eco-Friendly Hero Program:
Schools that adopt the Eco-Friendly Hero Program are not merely incorporating an educational module; they are investing in a comprehensive development framework. The objective? Cultivating students who don’t merely comprehend the environment but are intrinsically driven to safeguard and protect it. Through this program, learners are empowered to translate their environmental awareness into concrete actions.
Inspiring Change Across Generations:
Environmental consciousness knows no age boundaries. Individuals, whether young or seasoned, resonate with the compelling notion of shaping a better world. By integrating sustainability into classrooms – both as a philosophy and a teaching methodology – we hold the power to mold the next generation into conscientious global citizens.
The Eco-Friendly Hero Program: A Guided Journey:
Think of the Eco-Friendly Hero Program for Schools as a compass, guiding students towards actions that not only protect the environment but also enrich the world around them. It’s more than just a curriculum; it’s a commitment to a greener, brighter future.
Let’s nurture a generation that doesn’t just inherit the Earth but also cares deeply for it.
