Twenty-one (21) high school teachers from Municipalities of Mataasnakahoy and Balete in the province of Batangas had successfully completed the 2-day Training of Trainors. This training aimed at developing skills of teachers and institutions in engaging the youth towards actions and initiatives relevant to wetlands, disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation and mitigation (CCAM), and other related issues in the project sites and to ensure that the youth will continuously have a pool of trainors who can pass on the learning to other sectors of the community.
The Training of Trainors for Mataasnakahoy and Balete was composed of learning sessions about basic environmental concepts, DRR and CCAM, communication, experiential learning, and group dynamics among others. Teachers were also trained on how to conduct activities such as the field exposure visits and action-planning workshops.
As part of their practicum, the new teachers trainors were tasked to co-facilitate the conduct of Youth Ecological Camp for Mataasnakahoy Youth to apply the knowledge and learning experiences they have gained in the training.
