Manual on "Environmental Education and Communication in Laos" Available Online

ProCEEd has published three volumes of a manual on "Environmental Education and Communication in Laos" which is currently being translated into Lao language. The manual incorporates results and experiences related to the environmental tours, environmental education and communication activities and related human capacity development efforts accomplished by the project between 2011 and 2017. The three volumes are available online for perusal and download.

You can browse and share low-resolution versions on this website or you can ask for a high-resolution version from ProCEEd.

Vol. 1 People and the Environment is about the learning journey people undertake in their efforts to protect the environment. The volume begins with a process summary of ProCEEd's environmental bus tours as one possible format for environmental education. Subsequently, more general steps and processes are described that help organize other educational formats such as in-class trainings, workshops, information evenings, or learning events at a conference or festival.

The first volume mainly addresses managers of organizations that are interested in the big picture of approaches and concepts for environmental education. They may look for ideas and ways of how to organize environmental education processes.

Vol. 2 Getting Ready for Departure describes the process of basic training and coaching regarding the philosophy, methods and tools used in environmental education. These human resource investments in skills of the participating staff and volunteers are necessary to prepare the teams for taking other people on an environmental education journey.

Vol. 2 mainly addresses managers of organizations that are interested in the big picture of approaches and concepts for environmental education. They may look for ideas and ways of how to train the staff involved.

Vol. 3 Discoveries Along the Way is about proven methods and tools related to non-formal environmental education. The descriptions of these methods and tools are based on a standard step-by-step profile, which makes them easy to use in a variety of situations.

This toolbox is for the actual moderators of environmental education trainings and events, in the classroom or with communities in the field. Experienced moderators may want to pick interesting tools from the toolbox, without necessarily checking the organizational and training aspects described in Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. Less experienced moderators, in turn, will find detailed step-by-step descriptions for each tool, for guidance or as a reminder.
