In collaboration with Wadi Environmental Science Center team (WESC), iEARN Egypt students from experimental and public schools throughout Cairo, Alexandria, Fayoum, and Aswan, will learn about and be exposed to Egypt's water issues and how to solve problems in an environmentally conscientious and sustainable way. Using engaging presentation media that they will develop through out their project duration, the students will then transfer their new knowledge to others in their schools and communities. Finally these experiences will be presented by a group of the students themselves at the World Water Forum, to be held in Mexico City in 2006.
During the 2005-6 school year, first, students are to learn about the water problems facing Egypt, the potential problem-solving technologies available, and essential personal/community behavior modifications necessary.
Workshops started in Cairo, are taking place in Alexandria, and very shortly in El Fayoum and Aswan. Interested to know more, contact us.
