Wednesday, April 09, 2003 - Teachers can play a more proactive role in Environmental Education and Management if they understand its importance. This is the view held by the Saint Lucia Chapter of the Caribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN) as it hosts a workshop for primary and secondary school teachers on Thursday, under the theme “Teachers - Advocates for the Environment.”

CYEN Saint Lucia hopes to use the forum, to win the interest of teachers in becoming environmental advocates, and in developing clubs and groups in primary and secondary schools, which will be linked to other local environmental groups.

Following on the completion of the workshop, it is hoped that teachers will be more informed on environmental issues in order to engage their students in environmental activities.

Presentations will be made by representatives of the Caribbean Environmental Health Institute (CEHI), the Ministry of Physical Development and the Environment, among others. The programme begins at 9 a.m. at the Indies Conference Centre.
