The Logpom2 secondary school at training for sustainable development and the climate emergency.

RAEDD is a Cameroonian association that works for the promotion and popularization of ESD through capacity building of teachers

An initiative of Reseau Africain pour l'Education au Développement Durable - RAEDD

Overview of the project

It is a multisectoral initiative aimed at aligning this school with the requirements of sustainable development and its education; it begins with the declaration of sustainability, which is a written act attesting that the school is committed to sustainable development. This is followed by capacity building for teachers who do not always know what sustainable development is, let alone how to educate them. The setting up of a committee for the follow-up and monitoring of the project, made up of the head teacher, teachers and students, some of whom are members of the environmental police. The capacity building sessions for the teachers take place at the same time as the students are discussed on the themes of sustainable development and are sanctioned by the training in the making of compost and ecological coal.

The eco-cantine employees are trained in health security within the school during these times of pandemic. The initiative mobilizes the entire school of over 3500 students. The ecojogging is practiced once a week to raise awareness on the “clean school and green spaces”, expressions that are part of the message of the Ministry of Secondary Education of the country. Not to mention the minute of sustainable development that takes place every Monday during the ceremony of raising the colors. This is how the initiative is being carried out, which in the long run should allow the school to be included in the UNESCO network of sustainable schools.
