Tropica Verde e. V. – Active In Germany
A main focus of TROPICA VERDE’s public awareness activities is the presentation of the association and its goals in Germany through lectures, exhibits, and information desks. However, the planning and implementation of academic educational measures are also a part of TROPICA VERDE’s program.
Bookable educational offers on rainforest topics
The aim of Tropica Verde eV’s educational offerings is to familiarize students with the importance and benefits of biodiversity, to inform them about the causes and consequences of the progressive destruction of the rainforest and to give them examples of their own responsible behavior , For this purpose, different educational modules have been designed in cooperation with Tropica Verde.
Together with the Environmental Center Hanau, Tropica Verde has been offering an educational module on the subject of „Water Cycle in Germany and Costa Rica“ for primary schools in the Rhine-Main area since 2014.
In cooperation with the Green School of the Palmengarten Frankfurt, Tropica Verde has been offering the education module „Ara and Pineapple“ since 2014, focusing on „fair trade“ and „organic farming methods“ for lower secondary education.
Educational Materials – Free to download
Funded by the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) with funding from the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
The education module „Ara und Ananas“ in the Palmengarten Frankfurt is based on the educational material „Lernzirkel: Der Ara und den Ananas“ developed by Tropica Verde, which you can download for free. The learning circle focuses on the topics of sustainability, nature conservation and biodiversity in Costa Rica and gives impulses to deal with the rainforest ecosystem, its importance and endangerment across disciplines.
A sustainable conception of travel begins with the training of future multipliers and decision makers in the countries of origin of the holidaymakers. Therefore, Tropica Verde has developed a module „Sustainable tourism in emerging and developing countries – impacts on nature and the environment“. The aim of the environmental education unit is to sensitize vocational students of the travel industry for the theme of sustainable tourism. Trainees should be aware that they too can make a contribution to nature conservation with their work and recognize the opportunities for their own actions. The lessons can be downloaded for free.
