CARMABI foundation (in that time still Stinapa) started its first Environmental Education programs for school going children in 1985 with the financial support of the local government. In the 1990’s de program grew and expanded into a full value educational program for schools under the name of nature and environmental education. As of 1997-1998 the program is incorporated into the yearly budget of the government of Curaçao.
Now we are also working with other target groups besides the school going children. The 21st century with all its new techniques makes it possible to work trough different kinds of media to accomplish our goals. Not only radio and television, but the internet is now also an important tool to reach our target groups.

To learn how they can help to promote a sustainable development in relation to human beings, nature and environment.
