The Eco-China Initiative is building on the Environmental Education (EE) Guidelines jointly developed by SISC and the Ministry of Education to integrate learning on China’s rich and varied eco-systems, natural heritage and biodiversity into the national curriculum. Through interactive learning and hands on community projects, students will enhance the knowledge, skills and commitment needed to protect and preserve China’s unique natural eco-systems.

This project aims to establish ESD Centres in 10 Teacher Training Universities around China to provide a location for regional training and learning about eco-systems, and earth systems science etc.; to provide a place for exchanges, sharing learning and experiences; and to serve as a location for collection and exhibition of local biodiversity, 
student investigations, good practices etc.
