What does it actually mean to invest in our planet?
Amidst ever changing political and social landscapes, what should our investments look like? And how can we ensure that these efforts are both locally sustainable and resilient to shifting global contexts?
Navigating these questions is complex. Yet one of the most effective solutions is this: investing in our planet means investing in our youth. By ensuring that future generations are both informed about conservation best practices, and empowered to advocate for and implement them, we can ensure a more sustainable future for our planet and all who inhabit it.
Through our work with USAID and our partners, we explore innovative, engaging ways to bring this concept to life through conservation education initiatives.
Effective Conservation Education - Making Local Issues with Global Implications Kid-Friendly
The pandemic hit sub-Saharan Africa particularly hard. It left millions of young students without access to an already underfunded and inadequate education system, and communities and educators grappling with the challenge of how to keep kids learning. Against this difficult backdrop, N*Gen TV was born. Created by Peripheral Vision International in cooperation with educators and students from Kampala’s Clarke Junior School, N*Gen is the first Pan-African science show aimed at reaching both kids and families and focuses on novel ways to virtually educate and engage about topics ranging from science and technology, to engineering and mathematics. Each educational segment is delivered by charismatic teachers and scientists, who walk viewers though exciting animations, experiments, trips to the field, and even fitness and mindfulness exercises.
