GreenHub Visits UNIS: Environmental Education in Action

“We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” 

Providing solid and actionable environmental education for the next generation is becoming an indispensable part of all students’ education. Environmental education provides opportunities for students to think about issues beyond their classroom walls, grapple with difficult challenges that our planet faces, and think innovatively about solutions. 

Sharing the challenges of tackling plastic waste in Vietnam.

This week, GreenHub, in collaboration with The Learning Project, visited the United Nations International School (UNIS), Hanoi and conducted a presentation for the Year 9 cohort. The students will soon be visiting Cat Ba Island to learn more about its unique environment, heritage and geography. Cat Ba and the broader Ha Long Bay area is currently in the grips of a plastic pollution crisis. Students will have the opportunity to learn first-hand about the challenges associated with proper waste management and contribute back to the communities by participating in a beach clean-up.  

Interactive activities with the Year 9 students.

Rebekah Thielemans and Phoebe Ward, GreenHub mentors through the Australian Volunteers Program, and GreenHub Director, Tran Thi Hoa, conducted interactive activities on plastic pollution and provided context for the students’ upcoming trip, sharing about the waste management challenges facing Cat Ba and the solutions we have at hand. 

GreenHub is committed to environmental education and offers this service to all schools and other educational institutions. GreenHub recognises the critical role that students play – not just as future leaders and custodians of the earth, but as empowered citizens who can actively advocate and adopt sustainable practices.
