Forests and water
To begin, FEE will encourage participating countries/schools to examine the relationship between forests and water and to investigate the challenges in maximising the wide range of multi-sectoral forest benefits (domestic, agricultural, industrial, and ecological) without detriment to water resources and ecosystem function. Educational materials will focus on the Theme, not the specific projects chosen by participating schools.
Participating schools can choose from one of the following Project Options in the Pilot Phase - Year 1:
- The role of forests in environmental protection, with a particular emphasis on water quality
- Forests and watershed management
- Forests and soil erosion.
Other projects may also be considered but must first be approved by LEAF International.
Educational Resources Year 1
