The first of a series of one day workshops on environmental awareness in provinces is going to be held in Shaviyani Milandhoo tomorrow (23rd January).

The workshop will be hosted by Milandhoo School and conducted by the Environment Department of Ministry of Housing, Transport and Environment. Participants will include students (of grades 8, 9, 10 and 11) from the islands of Milandhoo, Foakaidhoo, Narudhoo and Feevah as well as members from local NGOs from those islands.

The aim of this workshop is to raise awareness amongst school children on climate change and its impacts, Maldives becoming a carbon neutral nation, the celebration of International Year of Biodiversity in the Maldives, environmental laws and regulations, environmental conservation and how they can be actively involved to protect and preserve the environment through various school environment club activities.

The workshop is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and will conclude at 4:30 p.m.

Also as part of the programme, a special awareness session would be held for the island community leaders during the evening.
