The BIG FIVE conclusions which learning for EE or SDE 1.The trumpet of elephant: try to supply teachers in doing their own job better but if you want to catch what nature suggests you do not avoid upsetting their didactic methods. Open air experiences are richer than what you may plan 2.The growl of cheetah: do not fear of involving students even by marketing techniques; EE in not a religion or a political party, you don’t need faith but passion for the earth and consciousness of the contradictions of our living 3.The snort of rhino: quality is the only way to turn EE from a cultural option into a professional choice and a perspective of young generations 4.The grunt of the buffalos: search for hidden hints of environmental culture anyway: you’ll find them out! Use a metaphorical language: people will catch and remember easier what you wanted to say 5.The roar of lion: don’t be stuck on students targets only, but enlarge your hunting territory; let you contaminate from different approaches, the strength must be always on environmental issues and not on who’s leading it or financing it
