School-going children are never too young to start learning about trees and forests. This enables pupils and students to love and connect with nature and fosters future generations that are conscious of the benefits of trees and forests and the need to manage them sustainably.

Under the Environmental Conservation Education program, PLANE encourages and supports young generations to love forests and to take care of trees around them to improve the environment for posterity.

Environmental Conservation Cducation is crucial to prevent environmental degradation and sensitize society towards a more sustainable lifestyle.

We believe that investing in children’s forestry education can change the world for the better and we ensure that local communities work to reduce deforestation and restore degraded landscapes.

PLANE is committed to working closely with schools to train teachers and students on forest plantation establishment and maintenance, especially tree planting for fuelwood, agroforestry, planting of fruit trees like mangoes, guavas, oranges, jack fruits,  apples, pawpaws, avocados among others to provide nutrients to children and also conserve the environment.

The Environmental Conservation Education Programme is reaching out to children and young people to encourage them to care for their environment. More than 50% of Uganda’s population is below 15 years of age, so PLANE activities are intentionally implemented in primary and secondary schools, communities, and churches as a way of targeting the youth to encourage environmental learning through participation. We aim at raising awareness about using nature to increase production and conserve the environment.

We encouraged youth to grow their own vegetables and planet new trees. This promotes healthy eating as well as protecting the environment.

Keep Fort Portal Garbage Free Campaign aims at empowering, engaging and educating Ugandan children and the town dwellers on the issues of reducing cabbage in the city.
