Distributing Environmental information on Baltic Sea
Actor: The Association of the Estonian Nature Study Teachers ● Year: 2016 ● Address: Tallinn
One of the tasks of the Association of the Estonian Nature Study Teachers is to distribute environmental information to the target group (teachers and environmental educators) and to the public. Webpage and an environmental education magazine published by the Association are important tools for that. In order to provide information about ecological state of the Baltic Sea and introduce activities on the Baltic Sea protection a special theme page has been opened at our website and articles has been published in the magazine.
We have published articles about marine ecology (Oil transportation and seabirds; Overview about ecological state of the Baltic Sea) in our environmental education magazine „Kägu”. The authors of the articles are the scientists and experts of Estonia. In this way the readers can get reliable environmental information and data for their everyday work.
Another type of articles introduce to the readers the projects and activities for the protection of the Baltic Sea. The Year of Finnish Gulf had special attention in the issues no 22 and 23 , the Youth Declaration has been translated into Estonian language and published, the Baltic Sea Challenge Network has been introduced to the Estonian schools. The schools has been encouraged to join the network.
Also a Baltic Sea themed page has been opened: https://loodusaineteliit.wordpress.com/oppematerjalid/laanemere-teema/
