More than 500 Belarusian teachers undertake UNDP environmental courses


More than 500 Belarusian teachers have been trained under the educational project “Green Schools”, BelTA learned from the UNDP.

There have been 28 three-day training courses, four in every region and in Minsk. They lasted from November 2019 until February 2020. The participants shared experiences, updated and deepened knowledge in the field of energy and water supply, waste management, air quality, and learned how to apply the possibilities of the Aarhus Convention in their work. Specialists in various environmental fields were invited to cover certain topics.

The project gave teachers the incentive to continue to implement “Green Schools” project and to exchange knowledge and experience with colleagues and students. This will help expand the network of educational institutions in Belarus that are implementing the project, and will speed up the acquisition of "green" status for schools.

The training courses are a part of the project "Civic engagement in environmental monitoring and improving environmental management at the local level” that is financed by the EU and is implemented by the UNDP in Belarus in partnership with the Belarusian Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Ministry and the Belarusian Education Ministry.

“Green Schools” is an environmental movement that is developing all over the world. The students of these schools in Belarus get their friends and parents involved into their field of interest, share the knowledge on waste sorting, water and energy saving. An educational institution can receive a ‘green' status only after completing a set of assignments designed to address environmental issues and issues facing the country.
