The IES

 

We would like to invite you, students of all ages, and interested in issues like Education, Environmental Conservation, Sports, and especially Cultural Exchange, to join the International Education Society (IES).

The IES is a major division of the WEF, which acts as network and club. The IES Club will promote cultural exchange and approach students and people involved in Education related activities. Businesses, schools and supporters can also join the Club, to provide incitement of WEF education programs all over the world.

In addition, the IES offers a Certification Seal for partners, and a Quality Seal for schools and institutions that carry out excellence works in education, and in scientific and technological development.

ENVIRONMENT

friendly-koalaThe WEF's Environmental Education Program was created to promote education as a tool that can help conserve and enhance the earth’s biological diversity. We work with educators, environmental organizations, and government agencies in developing countries. Our Organization employs a unique combination of education, social marketing, and communication strategies to achieve our goals. Even our logo, that shows a friendly koala holding a book, would draw attention to endangered species.

We believe that behavior change is essential to the conservation of biological diversity and that this behavior change must be viewed as a positive alternative by the people involved. The WEF also believes that to be effective, conservation efforts must enhance the quality of life for those directly dependent on the planet’s biological bounty and must promote the equitable sharing of benefits derived from the world’s natural resources.

The WEF's goals are to help educators and other professionals concerned about environmental quality create more positive environmental attitudes and behaviors in specific audiences.

In order to accomplish our mission, we work to:

  • Provide training to educators and others who are willing to work towards appropriate behavior changes. Change in those persons creating environmental problems today and those who can help prevent them in the future.
  • Supply resources and support to future educational leaders who have the potential to make significant contributions to positive environmental behavior in their countries.

  

Importance of Environmental Conservation

As technology grows, we discover more ways to preserve and protect our planet. But what does it really mean to go-green? Helping to reserve mother Earth has evolved into much more than recycling as people embrace nature and do their part to keep our fragile eco balance intact.
 
Advancements in biodiesel fuel will contribute to an enormous reduction in fossil fuel emissions and air pollution rates. Biodiesel fuel is nontoxic, biodegradable and created without the use of petroleum. Creating this fuel will save billions of dollars that can be put toward better use. Scientists have begun studies with algae and find it to be a plausible energy source. Lots of money is involved in conservation, in some countries, there is even a conservation tax that penalizes companies for being heavy polluters. With the thousands of different types of algae there are this could become a limitless gain to science and the environment.
 
Changes are quickly developing that will soon become a new way of life. Teaching the importance of environmental conservation to children is a first step to securing a healthier future. Classrooms worldwide have become eco friendly not only with products they use, but with the lessons that are being taught. Schools have started recycling more than just paper products and many have children help in recycling and grounds keeping to show how to properly take care of waste and value the work that goes into keeping schools clean.
 
Wonderful NatureEven our homes have become a source of inspiration. Chemicals have become safer, which not only helps your family but also cleans without being as harsh to surfaces. Everyday items such as toilet paper, light bulbs, clothes, batteries, soaps, water, and air purifiers have all undergone drastic changes to help meet the new standard of eco friendly. If your house is very green friendly, you might be able to qualify for some environmental tax credits. As the world strives for a new level of healthy for ourselves, we seek new ways to downsize our carbon footprints.
 
Endangered species and other wildlife have suffered due to human hands in the past. Today more awareness has been brought to preserving natural habitats than ever before. Together we can create a world that is healthy not only for us but for animals as a whole. Giving back some of their territories is a start in the right direction as people begin rebuilding wild animals’ lost shelters. Maintaining different areas such as deserts, wetlands, rain forests, and plains will keep the healthy balance needed.
 
Unfortunately, many natural disasters also create unsafe areas and contribute to the loss of lives. Remodeling after a natural disaster can take years and truly put our efforts to the test. Salvaging what is left afterwards and using it for a better tomorrow can at times seem impossible. Despite our many growing efforts you cannot always prepare for the worst. Striving for a brighter tomorrow is how we conserve for the future.
