Gender, urbanity and community development

Topics related to the Gender Into Urban Climate Change Initiative (GUCCI) are the ones GenderCC would like to focus on for the exchange programme, given the project’s multi-level (city, country and global level), crosscutting (gender and climate change) and the original GAMMA methodology (please see below about the project description). The exchange is thus a unique opportunity to collaborate with YGF and design further approaches based on our mutual fields of expertise, including climate and environmental protection, low-carbon urban development and community sustainable development.

Environmental education for children and community development

We would like to exchange on the different methods and practices of environmental education, spe-cifically forest education, with children and adults in Germany and China. Waldkindergarden Eichhörnchen and Laotu are both leading organizations of environmental education in their respective countries. Through our previous meeting in Germany, we found that Waldkindergarden Eichhörnchen has developed some of the best education models which could be practiced worldwide. Our research and work experience in China also showed that, Chinese children and young adults are especially lacking opportunity to experience nature, and this need could be met by introducing forest education from Waldkindergarden Eichhörnchen.
