It is absolutely necessary to develop human resources who lead the next generation in order to establish sustainable cities and exert efforts to resolve global warming issues.
With the aim of improving environmental education at lessons in elementary schools and enhancing the learning effect of children, TMG provides environmental education workshops for teachers of elementary schools in cooperation with incorporated nonprofit organizations. In FY2009, a total of ten workshops were held and participated in by 211 teachers.
We put forward environmental education by making use of various opportunities and tools such as proliferation of environmental education programs for elementary schools, cooperation with businesses that address environmental education in an advanced manner, and the holding of tours to visit landfill sites in Tokyo Bay, etc.
In FY2010, we will start environmental study lectures for working members of society in cooperation with Tokyo Metropolitan University and further promote the approaches to environmental education for a wide range of generations.
