Education meets biodiversity in DRCongo
On September 27th school inspectors from DRCongo met various Belgian stakeholders working in the field of Education and Development. The event was organized at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS) in the framework of a collaboration between VVOB and the ‘Secrétariat Général à l’Environnement et la Conservation de la Nature’ from DRCongo, with the support of CEBioS.
The project entitled “Sensibilisation sur les apports de l’agriculture durable à la biodiversité dans l’enseignement technique agricole en RDC” was presented -with a focus on the Open Days of 2015 and 2016-, as well as the activities of the three above-mentioned teams and RBINS Education Activities. Besides the Congolese delegation, participants from the Royal Museum for Central Africa (RMCA), VVOB, Via Don Bosco, the Botanical Garden Meise, the Belgian Biodiversity Focal Point, and the Belgian Development Cooperation (DGD) were present.
A guided tour in the Museum and a closing drink gave the opportunity to all stakeholders to exchange ideas and contacts and discuss further collaborations.
The programme, the list of participants, the pictures and the presentations are available below.
