Strategies and Approach
Reflecting the goal and mission of the Shangri-la Institute, the Waterschool China programme aims to enhance education, encourage stewardship, inspire hope, and build community sustainability.
The learning and action take place at three levels:
Waterschool China seeks to enhance the knowledge, skills and commitment of teachers, students and community members that are relevant to sustainable water resource management.
At the organisational level, institutional capacity relating to water education is strengthened in selected watersheds of the Yangtze, including: the Waterschool China Institute; Waterschool Regional Co-ordination Centres; and Leadership Teams, which are composed of representatives from schools, communities, nature reserves and monasteries.
At the community level, Waterschool China provides a platform for social learning and connects with broader institutions to promote participatory decision making processes and influence policy formation among the multi-stakeholders in sustainable development.
