Summary

The Corcovado Foundation environmental education program has created awareness and has empowered hundreds of children during the last ten years, working in 14 schools in Drake Bay and Costa Ballena. However the program has never been funded properly and has always had limited resources. The foundation will start a process in which it promotes the planting of trees on farms, public areas and river basins. The most accomplished and involved children will then participate in a leadership program.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There have been two missing elements in the conservation efforts in the Osa Peninsula, in order to achieve long term solutions: economic development and environmental education. Without proper economical options communities will keep going back to poaching and gold mining no matter the consequences. With a sustained environmental education program new generations will think differently about their natural resources and Corcovado National Park.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Corcovado Foundation environmental education program, as small as it is, has created awareness and has empowered hundreds of children during the last 10 years. After 10 years of implementing this program, the foundation has initiated a new stage called "Creating the Environmental Education Leaders of the New Millennium". the foundation will start a process in which it promotes the planting of trees on farms, public areas and river basins.

Potential Long Term Impact

1) 14 schools in the Drake Bay, Dominical and Costa Ballena, (for a total of 14) receive monthly environmental education and engage in hands on environmental education activities, such as tree planting, recycling and others. 2) 5 children's environmental groups in Drake Bay area are empowered and work weekly on environmental education projects as an extra- curricular activity. 3) 20 of the most accomplished children will participate in a leadership program.
