Bolstering learning in the natural sciences and health
WWF – World Wide Fund for Nature and local partners in Greenland will develop an educational programme within the natural sciences and health for Greenland’s primary and lower-secondary schools.
The project will focus on linking the students’ understanding of nature, cultural heritage and health in Greenland and on increasing their insight into how to use nature sustainably based on the changes Greenland faces related to climate, health and socioeconomics. Thoroughly upgrading skills in teaching the natural sciences is a key aspect of the project.
The project is one part of a long-term strategy that aims to improve the knowledge and competencies of children and adolescents in relevant fields in Greenland. The target group is students in grades 6–10 in Nuuk, Greenland’s capital. About 1000 children and adolescents are expected to be in contact with the project, which will run from 2017 to 2018.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation has awarded DKK 1 million to WWF – World Wide Fund for Nature for the project.
