nature & environment education
Welcome to the Nature and Environmental Education (NME) department.
What we do
We inform school children about the importance of nature and our environment and the protection, conservation and sustainable development of the island. We do so by providing programs in the field, in the classroom, providing educational materials for schools and make information accessible for the youth. We also have a goal to educate the people who live on or visit our beautiful Curacao.
We also produce media programs, nature documentaries and we provide workshops and courses.
