'Green Rain' in Viet Nam’s schools to water growth of environmental education
Ha Noi - The 'Green Rain 2000/2001' campaign œ to promote greater environmental awareness in the schools of Viet Nam œ will be launched in Ha Noi this week. The environmental awareness campaign is part of a UNDP project promoting environmental education in Viet Nam's schools, supported by the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA).
'Green Rain' will be launched on Thursday 5 October at the Hoang Dieu Primary School in Ha Noi. The campaign includes poster and essay contests, calling for entries from students from all over Viet Nam. The best posters and essays will receive prizes to be presented on World Environment Day 2001 (5 June).
Students attending the launch of the 'Green Rain' campaign will also receive adhesive labels for their schoolbooks that feature an environmental message. The labels feature a photo and short description of some of Viet Nam's most endangered animals œ raising awareness about the plight of Viet Nam's vulnerable species. The labels have been distributed to provincial schools throughout Viet Nam, including to those provinces where endangered species are most are risk due to illegal poaching or are likely to end up on restaurant menus and dining tables.
As the next generation of decision-makers and those who will be most affected by the actions of the present, children will play the main role in the future in deciding how the goal of sustainable development and environmental protection is to be achieved. By learning about environmental issues at school, children attain a sound understanding and awareness, and develop important values and attitudes, as well as the necessary skills and behaviour to promote sustainable development.To this end, looking to the future, to support and promote the concept of sustainable and environmentally responsible development, the UNDP is supporting the five-year long project, Environmental Education in the Schools of Viet Nam, which commenced in 1999.

- "When you create a story, what questions do you think of? What do you want to talk about and how do you want to come across with your message?". Those were some of the reflections put on table during today's workshop for students from public schools in Rio and Project Young Journalist organized by Rio+ Centre and CIEDS. To reveal the importance of critical thinking and to show more of the wonderful world of writing by share of experiences, we invited two entrepreneurs: Carla Siccos from Cdd Acontece, the main journal of City of God/Cidade de Deus and Guilherme Vinicius Roberto from Livreteria Popular Juraci Nascimento, an itinerant literature space. Stay tuned for more!
