Bahrain has integrated environmental culture in education, as well as consolidated the concepts of afforestation and caring for green areas in the curricula.
This was emphasised by the Minister of Education, His Excellency Dr. Mohammed bin Mubarak Juma, as he participated in the “Education Ministerial Meeting”, held as part of the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28), held in Dubai.
The meeting discussed countries’ experiences in enhancing the ability of education systems to contribute to climate action by focusing on climate education. Addressing the meeting, Dr. Juma stressed that the educational institutions in the Kingdom, whether at the level of early education, school education or higher education, have made major strides in implementing educational environmental programmes and initiatives that aim to increase awareness among students and community members about environmental issues.
He underlined the importance of concerted efforts to make the curricula and educational methods at all educational levels directly linked to achieving international environmental goals.
