I love so much…Let’s be Inspired!

Dear friends, dear visitors,

I simply say fabulous…! Congratulations to this young pupil Margault from Belgian school  of Berlaymont in Waterloo and to all the teachers from Belgian school of Hamme-Mille for their initiatives around environmental and Polar issues…

These are my two favorites 2012 projects I wanted to put forward and which deserves our strong congratulations.

I am convinced that in your region, country, neighbourhood… there are as well youngsters, institutions, schools, … which are leading similar educational activities to raise awareness and to protect our Nature…

Let’s all be inspired… and be contaminated by the virus to think and act for more Nature conservation and to put such crucial matters at the heart of our daily discussions and schools lessons…

1. Margault, this young girl of 11 did in 2012 work several months to present to her classroom the issues around climate change, its impact on Polar régions and solutions adults & youngsters can on daily basis focus on to participante to Nature conservation… Read here the reportage titled in French « Une jeunesse belge active pour l’Arctique…Stop à la fonte des glaces » (Belgian Youth active for the Arctic…Stop to the melting ice)>>


2. Teachers from Belgian school of Hamme-Mille are involving their pupils to projects and exercices around Nature, the Arctic… and have created a pedagogical Nature reserve   … Read here the article written titled in French  « L’école d’Hamme-Mille au coeur de magnifiques projets natures et polaires (Hamme-Mille school at the heart of Nature and Polar projects)» >>

I am defending for years the idea that our education and schools should all around the world focus more on practical lessons related to nature conservation, health, local & farm products, how one should act to sustain & preserve our planet, to “civic & eco spirit and involvement”. Notably by making mandatory a 6 months “educational or civic training” (social – humanitarian – environmental) to obtain the secondary school diploma (at 18 years old).

In the meantime, foresee as from the age of 6 till 18 a mandatory course of at least 4 hours/week which may be called “scientific & practical civic studies” where pupils would learn different themes related to nature, to sustainable ecology, to togetherness values, to the philosophy of “living better by spending less”, how to challenge life & difficulties….

In my foreword, I am developing more in depth these points.

Imagine then the cultural change in mentalities, the openness of the youth (the adults of tomorrow)  to others and to the most vulnerable, towards a nature which is already under threat…What a positive impetus this may create …

I am calling this the “societal, philosophical & environmental revival” (SPER): by the youngsters, with the youngsters and for each one of us…

Let’s be inspired, united and act as all these youngsters towards more Nature conservation!

I invite you to put forward on Arctic05 your educational polar initiatives. For further info, please click here >>
