  • Project Overview

    This project aims to expand environmental literacy from East Asia (Japan and Taiwan) and Southeast Asia (Indonesia and Vietnam) where it is currently undertaken laterally to South Asia (Nepal). Specifically, a fact-finding survey will be conducted of the actual situation and need for environmental education in schools and the environmental awareness of elementary and junior high school children in major cities in Nepal (Pokhara and Kathmandu). The project will also support experiential and exploratory environmental learning based on local CO₂ concentration assessments, and foster and assess environmental literacy to meet climate change as knowledge and skills to be acquired throughout life. It will contribute to educating children to face global environmental issues by comparing the results of the survey in Nepal with the results obtained in Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia and Vietnam and sharing what was learnt among the schools.
