Kirstenbosch Education: Awareness-raising Initiatives
Celebration of Environmental Days / Weeks
The following six environmental days/weeks will be celebrated during the 2012 -2013 financial year:
- World Wetlands Day
- World Water Day
- Biodiversity Day
- World Environmental Day
- Arbor Week and Heritage Day
The celebrations will take the form of lessons facilitated in the Garden as well as small events in schools and in the community. They will involve relevant partnership organizations and stakeholders and aims to develop meaningful awareness and learning as well as take some form of environmental action.
Traditionally, the careers programme at Kirstenbosch NBG involves participating in the Kirstenbosch Biodiversity Careers Expo as well as the University of Cape Town’s Science Career Day.
The Kirstenbosch Biodiversity Careers Expo will not take place this year but we will be facilitated four teacher professional development workshops based on biodiversity careers in the science, social science, business and arts streams.
