Connecting Classrooms at Stavanger, Norway After more than one year of engagement in activities to protect the environment, members of Connecting Classrooms further their commitment to UNEP with their participation in the TUNZA International Childrens Conference on the Environment 2008. Connecting Classrooms delegates from Mauritius, Namibia and Senegal amongst others have shown much concern and enthusiasm during the conference.
Opening Ceremony Participants held their countrys flag with a feeling of pride; proud to be young ambassadors of the environment. The opening ceremony provided the very first taste of Norwegian folklore, arts and culture.
Workshops & Fieldtrips Both delegates and their chaperones have had the opportunity to participate in the various field trips and workshops organised.
Workshops & Fieldtrips The workshops and fieldtrips have been efficiently tailored – chaperones have learned new techniques to engage childrens curiosity and interest in science and environment; children have shown tremendous enthusiasm. The conference has been a perfect platform for the sharing of views and ideas, not to mention the formation of new bonds and links among countries.
