Little Explorers Declaration
‘We proudly declare that we will engage within our club in a responsible manner through playing, learning and protecting nature.’
The Little Explorers Club is an educational and awareness-oriented kids club which seeks to encourage children to ‘get in touch’ with nature, through an inquisitive lens and meaningful interactions. The aim is to reconnect children with nature and encourage exploration through their own eyes and experiences.
The rationale prompting the launching of the club was that there is a general perception that many children in today’s societies are not engaging with the natural world.
Nature provides countless opportunities for discovery, creativity, problem-solving, and education. Interacting with natural environments allows children to learn by doing and experimenting with ideas.
Moreover, the club is also bringing ‘citizen science’ into play, where the children can learn how to collect and analyse data that could essentially be used in science projects, conservation and management.
The club is targeting kids from the ages of 4 to 12 years old, prompting them to explore their surroundings and question the functioning of the natural world. The guiding principle is to use our natural surroundings as a classroom and employ interactive learning techniques to educate them about nature and its importance in our survival.
The club is operated by members of Gaea Seychelles in collaboration with the Terrestrial Restoration Action Society of Seychelles (TRASS), comprising of qualified and experienced members and associates in the environmental field, sustainability, natural science and communication and awareness.
