Build your green city

In this educational scenario, the class works to build a better world, based on a deeper understanding of the ways in which forests and trees can make our cities greener, healthier and better places to live.

Students are challenged to work in teams to solve problems together, think critically, gather knowledge, apply their imagination and experiment. Students learn about the many benefits of trees and forests, especially in cities, and will raise awareness among today’s children about sustainable use and conservation of forests.

The educational scenario was developed in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
