Working with schools, communities, and government and private sector institutions, the Egyptian Environmental Education and Outreach Program (E3OP) seeks to transform the way educators teach environmental education and outreach in Egypt's primary and preparatory schools and the way it is approached by communities. The program is assessing existing environmental education materials, developing new materials as needed, and disseminating the materials to schools and communities directly and via an environmental education and outreach resource center. Additionally, E3OP is training teachers to direct their students in real world environmental projects and working with the government, the media, and the private sector to engage wider communities in the activities. As a result, schools and communities will become advocates of environmental awareness and action, private-public partnerships will help sustain environmental initiatives, and educators, students, and community members will have access to high-quality environmental education resources.
