Connecting the dots…

by Jo Hudson, Science Intern, Blue Ventures Head Office

Connecting Classrooms
is the joint project between UNICEF and Blue Ventures, which will enhance our community-based conservation programmes through innovative, technological teaching tools for the youth of coastal southwest Madagascar. By using interactive learning techniques and ‘connecting’ the students with their peers, both internationally and in Madagascar,  they will learn about the natural world.

Please use this link to see a video by Jon Slayer which documents the Connecting Classrooms participants trip to a baobab forest. This film highlights the importance of activities like this in youth centred conservation.

Please do check our website  and Vimeo page regularly for updates and the latest videos from Madagascar & Belize.
