Earlier this month the Inkaterra Asociación lead their latest educational workshop focusing on the environment. The programme has been running for nine years now, lead by a team of professional biologists and Inkaterra guides sharing their extensive knowledge of the surrounding area. The aim of these workshops has always been to help teach the local children how to value and respect the environment they live in.
Inkaterra Asociación (ITA) endeavour to make the workshops as fun and as interactive as possible so the children can relate to the issues discussed. Organisers encourage the children to play games and take part in experiments along side looking at arts and crafts. These interactive efforts teach the children about issues such as recycling, climate change, ecology, biodiversity and ecotourism.
Inkaterra believes events like this are vital throughout the year in order to help the younger generation to connect with the environment, giving them a sense of responsibility. ITA firmly believe that these sessions are important as they “encourgae children to have a friendly relationship with the environment”.
