Actor of change
Raising young people's awareness of biodiversity conservation
We are developing exchanges between schools in developing countries (Africa, Asia and Amazonia) and French schools on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
It is now accepted that we, as citizens of industrialized countries, are responsible for the degradation of our environment on a planetary scale.
Through our educational tools, students will grasp the importance of changing their behavior in order to preserve and share natural resources more equitably with developing countries.
Did you know?
A scientific report states that developed countries are responsible for over 30% of biodiversity loss in developing countries. The traditional knowledge and management methods of local communities in developing countries are essential to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. This convergence between our countries in the North and South will facilitate school exchanges, with learning taking place in both directions!
A generation focused on the future
Let’s awaken our SENSE OF SOLIDARITY( fr : SENS SOLIDAIRES) , our priority objective is to involve schoolchildren in the need to maintain our planet’s biodiversity.
In order to include them as future actors, based on a diagnosis, we help them to set up a local project within their establishment in connection with the SDGs chooses from various supports.
For example: an exhibition on the harmful effects of plastic and solutions to stop this pollution, starting up a vegetable garden for healthier eating, a video on deforestation: the problem of palm oil…
Well done to them !
Production of a documentary on school correspondences between Nice and Abidjan.
Example: Through our interventions, we modernize the correspondence and sharing between schools around the world.
Well done to them !
Production of a documentary on palm oil.
Example : Through our interventions, the students of the CM2 class of the Rothschild school in Nice created a documentary on the problem of intensive palm oil cultivation which results in the deforestation of primary forests and the disappearance of all its biodiversity.
A meeting is held at the beginning of the school year with each selected school, to explain the implementation of the project and to allocate the foreign correspondences.
The teachers choose the theme of the correspondence in alignment with their class curriculum and educational objective.
To remain consistent, our first interventions with schoolchildren take place during International Solidarity Week, from October 15 to November 30.
We introduce the theme on the chosen SDGs., then coordinate the logistics of exchanges between the two countries (either by post, e-mail or videoconference).
“We are aware of the lack of time for teachers to transmit these issues that have become mandatory since the Paris agreements on COP21 where SENS SOLIDAIRES was invited in 2015”.
“To uphold this commitment, we have been running projects in over 50 primary and secondary schools, both private and public, for the past 6 years, with great satisfaction from students, parent-teacher associations, teaching staff, and school administrations. We are a professional team in the field of education for sustainable development and international solidarity. Through our teaching tools, aligned with the educational program, we carry out concrete actions to engage students with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).”
This meaningful and impactful project is made possible through the moral and financial support of our partners.
