Group picture of 2nd National Conference
Since the establishment of ECCA in 1987, it has been actively involved with establishing and mobilizing Nature Clubs / Child Clubs in schools towards environment conservation and protection. Children’s club are independent and voluntary groups within the schools, aiming to promote active participation of students in different learning process. ECCA pioneered the concept of children’s nature clubs in Nepal in 1992 and have been actively working with students through children’s club in different issues such as environmental conservation, sustainable development, health & sanitation, children’s rights and more.
With an objective to create an opportunity to learn, share and increase network with other nature clubs operating in different regions, ECCA had organized National Children’s Club Conference in past. The 1st conference was organized in the year 2000 and 2nd conference was organized in the year 2009. Hence, in order to create more platforms for the students for their exposure, we are preparing to organize 3rd National Conference on Children’s Club in the month of April.
The 3 days event from 11th April to 13th April will include various activities like plenary sessions by experts, Knowledge marketplace, Children’s Club Paper presentation, exhibitions from children clubs, games, presentation by students, documentary shows, environmental games etc. These activities will support to increase the knowledge of students along with the skills required to organize programs and activities through their clubs in days ahead.
Our Involvement in Yachhu Macha Pucha (Clean Child Group) as board members during our school days had contributed a lot in our knowledge, skill and leadership development. We had organized lots of community projects in our community during our participation in club and had been able to win the concept for promotion of Safe Water concept in Knowledge Marketplace during the 2nd National Conference.
