A public discussion, “How Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) can be Integrated into the Egyptian Schools Curriculum,” concluding EduCamp II, a one-year project led by The American University in Cairo (AUC), with support of Sekem Development Foundation, the Participatory Development Program in Urban Areas (PDP) and the German International Cooperation Agency (GIZ).
EduCamp II aims to empower informal areas in Egypt to overcome many of their problems through educational and capacity development activities and actions. This is to be achieved through enhancement of educational and recreational services in El Warraq informal area/community and tackling real community problems on the ground.
Among the main highlights of EduCamp II are: the development of a summer educational and recreational program in elementary and preliminary schools including educational and recreational sessions as well as hand-on activities that bring key sustainable development concepts to school students. This is in addition to building the capacities for 52 members of the community, schoolteachers and local volunteers with a especial focus on youth and women; the renovation and upgrade of existing educational and recreational facilities in Mohamed Farid and Sadat schools in El Warraq and holding a three-week summer educational and recreational program for 100 students in Mohamed Farid and Sadat schools in El Warraq.
