Creating a FUTURE

"The greenhouse effect threatens the development opportunities for Billions of people in the world's poorest countries."
Kirutha Kibwana, kenian minister of the environment

In the last few years, the topic of environmental protection has become increasingly important in West African Togo and has become more and more popular with the people. There are almost no coherent, dense forests and the microclimate in the region is changing. In addition, climate change is intensifying the negative consequences. Therefore, it is important that the emerging generation understands the importance of the environment, what interactions exist and what influence they have.

The IdeA

The school forest project aims to create school forests and vegetable gardens at as many schools in the project region as possible, so that the children develop an awareness of the environment and its relationships at an early stage. In addition, the school forest projects provide meaningful sources of
income for the schools to buy urgently needed teaching material or to improve the school facilities.

School forest projects mean educationSensitization
and gender equality

The sponsoring of the school forest projects is aimed at companies that want to get involved in the compensation of CO2 emissions in Africa.

A school forest sponsorship always runs for one year and is celebrated with a school garden graduation party. The sponsors receive regular reports, images and text material so that they are informed about the progress of the project and can report on it themselves in their sustainability activities.

The four phases of the project

"The problems of today cannot be solved with the
thinking of yesterday." Albert Einstein

The entire school forest project is divided into four project phases,
spread over a period of about 32 weeks.

1 prearrangements
(Introducing the idea.)

The first phase includes all measures to get to know the project, to introduce it to schools, children, teachers, parents and finally the entire village community. First preliminary questions on the possible implementation of the idea will be answered together. This includes, among others:

  • Finding suitable and interested schools in the region
  • Detailed project presentation in the partner schools
  • Agreement with the schools
  • Inspection of all individual conditions such as

    • Place?
    • Time?
    • Water?
    • Previous knowledge?
    • other already available materials ?

Building on the findings, the syllabus will be timed.

3 realization
(The practice.)

Learning the correct handling of plants is the main topic in the practical part, the third phase of the school forest project. This includes:

  • Theory:
    • Materials for work
    • Seeds: where can you find it, what is its quality and how to deal with the seed
    • Creating patches
    • Seed
    • Irrigation
    • Isolation young plants
    • Harvesttime (veggies)
  • Practice arboretum:
    • Defining the area and prearrangements
    • Establishing tree nurseries
    • Seed
    • Irrigation
    • Isolating young plants
    • Spreading the plants on the areas, their care and monitoring
  • Practice vegetable garden:
    • Defining the garden and prearrangements
    • Creating patches depending on the kind of planted vegetable
    • Seed
    • Isolating young plants
    • Care and irrigation
    • First harvest, depending on vegetable, after already two month
    • Establishing places for composting biomass

2 sensitization
(The theory.)

In phase 2, the children and all stakeholders involved in the project will create an awareness of the interrelations of the environment, using the example of their immediate surroundings. This includes above all the sustainable use of resources and the consequences of exploitation. The children should be made aware of the importance of nature for survival and enjoyment of it. Contents of the 2nd project phase:

  • Definition and role of nature
    • Waterbalance
    • Mikroclimate
    • Biodiversity
  • Development of nature in the last ten years
    • State former vs. today
    • Which changes were there and which ones will come?
    • How do you assess these and how can you react to them?
    • Prior available knowledge?
    • Other already available materials?
  • What are the causes of the changes?
  • What role does humans play in this?
    • Forest fires
    • Industry
    • Urban development
    • Garbage/ plastics
    • Industrial agriculture
  • What are the consequences?
    • Degradation
    • Pollution (Air/ Water/ Soil)
    • Climatechange
    • Famines
    • Wars
  • Possible Solutions
    • Environmental protection and environmental awareness
    • Afforestation
    • Conscious use of existing resources
    • Adaption to the change
    • Interaction nature <-> human (Who needs whom?)

4 integration
(After realization.)

Phase 4 of the  project consists in ensuring the continued and ongoing care of the forest as well as the vegetable gardens, even beyond the completion of the actual school forest project. The aim is to integrate into regular school operations.
