Climate Change Education for China: Chongqing

In this past year altogether some 890 students and 46 teachers took part in a range of activities.

Southwest University volunteers took children and their parents on a tour of Jinyun Mountain Nature Reserve, to participate in a plant identification training. It served as an opportunity for the nature reserve staff to build stronger links with the local community, as well as for the families to have better, direct experience of the nature.

Beyond this, the Haitangxi Primary School worked with students to raise awareness of environmental and climate change issues, to strengthen community links  and promote their connection to nature. Activities included planting of trees, fruits and vegetables in the school campus, leading battery recycling and proper waste disposal drives, displaying environmental-knowledge posters in communities and holding knowledge competitions, and promoting water conservation and traffic safety.
