A briefing on the project in the current time and future plans:
In the beginning of April the idea of an educational project for primary schools was negotiated. Then, the idea was developed through collecting some pictures that can represent (environment in general, family, education, water resources, climate, and etc.). With the help of some designers, these pictures were refined and clearly and simply redesigned so that children can better understand and learn from them. For each picture, a clear, easy and educational paragraph about the content of the picture was added so that when the children color these pictures they can learn and reflect upon it in the hope of teaching them about the importance of environment. After working designing this project for about 45 days, the pictures were printed in the form of a copybook under the title of “Friend of Environment”.
It is worth mentioning that financially the project was supported by the Environmental Law and Advocacy Project of Nature Iraq which is also supported and funded by the European Union. Furthermore, General Directorate of Sulaimani Education reemphasized their whole support of this educational project and valued it as the first educational project conducted about environment from such an early stage in education and emphasized their support for the future stages of the project.
