Trend and Issue in Early Childhood Toward Environment Protection

In order to provide the best and effective way of learning nowadays, the teaching materials could be involved a lot of paper, photocopied materials, and exercise books. Teaching materials that consume electricity such as computer. The teaching materials that mix both plastic and metal parts together such as toy.

Some organizations or companies that carry out the social responsibility normally will visit the kindergartens to give the environment talk. The talk is to teach the concept of “reduce”, “reuse” and “recycle”.

Then the teachers have to set-up the “recycle” bins for children in the kindergarten to practice.

After the children practice the “recycle” activities in the kindergartens, the children will tell to parents to practice “reduce”, “reuse” and “recycle” as well.

Some nice video sharings

Dear Sis,

Dear Sis YF,
Thanks for the video’s sharing, within a few minutes, with the animation and sounds effects get the messages across to the children.

I would like to share the information in the last video link, with the important word “Kyoto”. It is referred to “Kyoto protocol”. It is a protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC or FCCC), aimed at fighting global warming. It named after the Kyoto city where the protocol was adopted in 1997.
Many countries have signed and ratified the protocol, except the United States.
There is an interesting mechanism called “emission trading”, where allowed the countries to meet their GHG emission limitations by purchasing GHG emission reductions credits from elsewhere, through financial exchanges, projects that reduce emissions in non-Annex I.

Dear Sis Yek Ming,

Great video sharing, the video is creative for chidren to pay attention to increse their awareness.

By the way, in view of the important of environment protection, do you plan to start the environment or recycle activity in Than Hsiang Kindy? Small project or activity is most welcome.

I am thinking is good to start the education from young.
