National Teachers Institute (NTI), Kaduna, Nigeria works with a mission to upgrade/update teachers’ knowledge and skills in curriculum implementation while instilling in them the virtues of dedication, loyalty, commitment, discipline and resourcefulness.
NTI has been keenly interested in implementing a programme in EE to be offered in Nigeria. Towards this NTI designated a team of four faculty members to understand the “Green Teacher Programme” being implemented in India, to be able to implement the same in Nigeria. This opportunity was also used as an orientation workshop on environmental education in formal education for the NTI team.
Thus, with support from COL, “Green Teacher Nigeria Planning Workshop” was conducted by CEE. The main objectives of the workshop were:
• To orient National Teachers Institute (NTI) team to Environmental Education and Education for Sustainable Development.
• To help them understand the Green Teacher Programme in the Indian Formal Education context.
• To have preliminary discussions and draft strategy and Action Plan for Green Teacher Nigeria.
