How to “Integrate Biodiversity into its Teaching”?

On 7 and 8 July 2019, 3 people from the Family and Rural House of Régina were trained by the GEPOG on the theme “Integrating Biodiversity in Teaching” with the aim of helping them to build a thematic week. on the theme of Biodiversity for the year 2019-2020.

During this training, the teams of the MFR of Regina were able to discover the different notions and definitions related to ecology and biodiversity through the practice of exercises and presentations in the forest during an outing on the communal layon.

As a result, these notions were reviewed and further explored in the classroom before focusing on ecosystem services, threats and conservation tools in order to understand the interest in biodiversity, the causes of its loss, and how which we can do.

Finally, the training was completed by an outing along the Approuague River in order to highlight all the skills acquired by performing a giant landscape analysis. Further exchanges will take place later between the GEPOG and the MFR to accompany them on the tools used for the thematic week on Biodiversity.

This training was an opportunity to introduce the Life BIODIV’OM project on which GEPOG works through the “dry savannahs of French Guyana” component for which actions against invasive alien species have been set up.
