Heritage will participate in a global environmental education initiative

04 August 2020

Heritage International School will participate in the “Climate Action” project – a global environmental education and awareness initiative, launched for the fourth consecutive year worldwide, with the support of international organizations and global leaders.

As part of the initiative, Heritage students and teachers, together with participants from 100 countries, will have free access to a global platform with resources for education, will interact and exchange experiences with peers from around the world, but will also implement actions to improve the environment. At this edition, thanks to the collaboration between the representatives of the project and NASA, the students' messages and drawings can be sent to Mars.

The coordinator of the “Climate Action” project in the Republic of Moldova is Tatiana Popa, English teacher at Heritage International School, who is also the Global Education Coordinator of our school.

Tatiana Popa, teacher at Heritage International School, “Climate Action” project coordinator in the Republic of Moldova: “Children need to learn about climate changes, recycling and social responsibility. How could they learn these things in an interactive and interesting way, if not by collaborating with other children from different parts of the globe? This project provides weekly lesson plans and tasks, open and adaptable educational resources, the possibility to send letters to Mars and communicate with NASA, as well as the opportunity to share good deeds with all the children in the world. It costs teachers nothing to register and work in collaboration with other schools. The change comes from each of us, and the teacher is the facilitator of that change.”

The “Climate Action” initiative will start in October and will run for 6 weeks. During this time our students will communicate on topics related to the environment, will study the causes and effects of climate changes, will try to find solutions to ecological issues and will take practical actions to protect the environment. At the same time, in tandem with children from other countries, Heritage students will participate in a global tree planting. Another urge of the project is to find a few minutes each day to do a good deed.

At this stage, 6 teachers at Heritage International School are involved in the project. A total of 75 teachers from the Republic of Moldova have enrolled. Participation is free, and all teachers who want to get involved can register HERE.

“Climate action” is a global impact project, which aims to carry out various actions in order to reduce the effects of global warming and protect the environment. During previous editions, students in Malawi have planted 60 million trees, young Indians have developed a solar stroller, those in Canada have created 3D-printed coral reefs, students in America have developed a solar suitcase, and those in Ireland have received a letter from the president.
