Environmental education in Germany

Tropica Verde is also actively engaged with environmental education in Germany since 1989. Costa Rica seems like a very far away country and many are not aware that the tropical forests are being extensively cut down for agriculture, livestock or expanding infrastructure. And so, one does not ask how one can contribute to their conservation.

Bookable educational offers on rainforest topics

The aim of Tropica Verde eV’s educational offerings is to familiarize students with the importance and benefits of biodiversity, to inform them about the causes and consequences of the progressive destruction of the rainforest and to give them examples of their own responsible behavior , For this purpose, different educational modules have been designed in cooperation with Tropica Verde.

Funded by the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) with funding from the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).

Action and information stands
