The MOJE newly published the teaching guidebook "Designing for places of mutual learning ~Ten Facilitation Skills Learned from Environment Education~", for environmental educators including teachers at elementary and junior high schools and program organizers related to promoting environmental education.


1.About this guidebook
This guidebook is issued for environmental educators to design and provide support for "places of mutual learning" where children can learn from each other.

Based on the concepts and skills emphasized in environmental education, this book offers guidance on how to deepen ideas and activate conversations among students, as well as on what tools and course structures may be helpful, thus achieving active learning experiences.

2.Background
This guidebook is issued as an outcome of Five years (2015-19) Tripartite Environmental Education Network (referred to as TEEN* hereafter) joint project by TEEN Japanese Committee working group. Making this guidebook is one of our efforts to achieve "Raising the consciousness of the environmental community at the grass-roots level" which is held as a target by TEEN.

* TEEN
Japan, China, and Korea agreed to establish and promote a tripartite cooperation project to achieve the target above at the Second Tripartite Environment Ministers Meeting (TEMM) held in 2000. Following this agreement, Director General's Meeting in 2000 decided to make TEEN to promote the environmental education network, which consists of environmental education experts from the three countries.
