Earthducation is a program by Save Philippine Seas (SPS) that aims to increase conservation literacy, teach basic and transferable skills to pursue environmental education, and instill appreciation for nature and the immediate environment.
The Earthducation Kit
The Earthducation Program was designed for formal and non-formal educators (e.g., public/private school teachers and workshop facilitators). From 2013-2019, SPS organized various Earthducation workshops around the country. In light of the current travel restrictions and limitations on mass gatherings, we developed and designed the Earthducation Kit to continue achieving our objectives.
We produced 50 Earthducation Kits for our pilot run. These have been distributed to public school teachers, media practitioners, and environmental educators.

Each chapter in the Activity Guide matches the themes in the Manual and presents activities that educators can do with learners in the physical and virtual eco learning space.
