Conservation education and awareness
COBEC sees education and awareness as the key to providing people with knowledge, awareness, attitudes and values to implement sustainable outcomes. However, education needs to be more broadly based than just providing information. COBEC’s education and awareness programme is intensive promotion of information within a context of learning by those on the receiving end and usually is combined with relevant action.
The awareness programme has been purpose-built to match particular audiences or recipients, whether they are officers or councillors in local government staff in government staff in government agencies, community groups, industry, students in formal education etc. COBEC conducts awareness programmes through organised workshops, video visits, video presentations, production of newsletters, leaflets, stickers, posters.
