An initiative of JVE Senegal

Overview of the project

The Eco-school Good Governance for an Eco-citizen Transition Programme “Good Deed” aims for an ecological transition through the development of an eco-citizen culture in schools for participative management of natural resources and the environment.

More specifically, it aims to support schools in their efforts to educate about the environment and to build the capabilities of clubs, teaching staff and students in order to involve them in the implementation of climate-resilience and low-carbon development programmes.


Encourage a sustainable citizen awareness in terms of environmental protection in Senegalese schools and high schools.
