WiLD!Kosova

Environmental Education and Biodiversity in the Balkans


 “WiLD Kosova!” Awareness campaign aims to change the local Kosova student mentality - including attitudes and behaviors – by raising awareness, so that there will be a sustainable base of active citizens involved in environmental issues. This is because Kosova students lack awareness about biodiversity and the rich wildlife that lives inside their country’s borders.  As a result, this region is experiencing the ongoing destruction of these animals’ habitats by humans. Yet these students are fully aware of animals found in Africa and Australia. We inform and raise the awareness of the students living in the municipalities of Peja, Prishtina, Prizren and Istog about Kosova’s wild animals and the importance of their habitats with the assistance of a video program that is shown in schools, and complemented with interactive and outdoor education methodology. The project consists of the making of a WiLD Kosova! film on DVD, in-school campaigns in four municipalities, teacher trainings to replicate the program, public screenings of the film in city centers and on national television, as well as a TV debate between students and government representatives. Throughout the project signatures will be taken students, teachers and citizens in favor of outdoor education within the curriculum, which can then be used to lobby the Ministry of Education to include outdoor components in the new environmental education curriculum.
