A series of training seminars for teachers of pilot sites implementing the Green Schools educational project has completed. They were trained to work with modern equipment for measuring environmental parameters and monitoring atmospheric air.

Seven training seminars were held in Minsk and the regions of Belarus in November-December 2019. Teachers of the pilot sites implementing the Green Schools educational project aimed at environmental education were trained to work with modern equipment for measuring environmental parameters and monitoring atmospheric air.

18 semi-professional weather stations, as well as precipitation collectors, snow gauges, conductometers, PH meters and gas analyzers in full have been purchased and received by pilot sites on the basis of educational institutions that implement the Green Schools educational project aimed at the environmental education of students.

Within the framework of the seminars, the specialists of Belhydromet and the project “Eco-monitoring” trained representatives of “green schools” in education to work with these devices, and also showed how to enter the data into the electronic observation diary on a specially created online platform that will work from January 2020.

Members of environmental monitoring clubs, as well as national and regional centers for “green schools” will be able to make accurate measurements of environmental parameters and air quality using the equipment received and enter their observations in an electronic diary. This will increase the awareness of youth and society as a whole about environmental issues, teach children how to work with data and analyze them, strengthen responsible and informed attitude to the environment, and become a starting point for involving the public in solving environmental issues.

In addition, a series of workshops on other aspects of the Green Schools educational course took place as part of the seminars.

 

The seminars were held  within “Eco-Monitoring” project, funded by the European Union and implemented by the UN Development Program in Belarus in partnership with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Belarus.
