Baikal Wave's new Interactive centre for sustainable development- some details!

Aim of the project - to promote ecological awareness and the ability to think critically, to motivate young people and adults to better understand the principles of the sustainable development of society and the development of "green habits" through discussion and discourse.

The Centre will build and develop awareness and educate through interactive displays, interactive activities, ie methods that draw on one's own personal experience and encourage visitors to derive one's own conclusions through observation, reflection and decision making, and evaluating one's own impact on the environment.

Permanent education programs for the public help fill the shortage of environmental information. which is mostly transmitted through "word of mouth". Such an approach will effectively influence the formation of an environmental culture in society and increase civic participation in environmental management.

Visitors to the center will be able to see green technologies and materials (energy-efficient LED lighting, computer, powered by solar energy, natural linoleum, and many others) first hand, as well as to test them in action!

Currently, active work is underway on the creation of the interactive center. We really need your help and support. You can help in the following ways:

- Input of original ideas
- Conducting of master classes, interactive lectures, seminars, excursions, etc.
- Designing of stands, models, posters, etc.
- Development of interactive models that demonstrate environmentally friendly technology
- Financial means to purchase materials and equipment for the Centre. Make a donation via:

  3. Hi there! It's Mark here, the author of the blog. Sorry I haven't got back to you before now, though I can explain; I originally started this blog whilst volunteering at the Baikal Wave, but have since returned to England and have only been able to add new posts sporadically. However, if you have any questions, let me know! My email is mej204@ex.ac.uk
