With great satisfaction, we have developed a very important program in environmental education for the department of Sololá, designed specifically for the necessities and context of the area. We seek to sensitize, promote, and encourage participation for the care of our natural resources.

The educational material Educating to Conserve has activities, experiments, and reflections for helping to learn sustainable ecological practices and habits. It was created by Amigos in collaboration with the Ministry of Education of the Solola region, the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources and local and international institutions.

In 2011 we published all this material for the use of principals, teachers, and students of the primary level. In 2013 to students in the basic level and in May 2015, for the diversified level.

We have handed out more than 10,000 copies of Educating to Conserve in 19 municipalities of Sololá. The handing out of these copies goes alongside with training the teaching staff and directors. More than 3,000 teachers, 680 directors, and 95,000 students have taken part in this program.

This was made possible with the support of the University of Del Valle of Guatemala, Center of Studies Atitlan, Cementos Progreso, Pollo Campero, Pollo Rey, Salvavidas, Supercola, Amsclae, and the Italian Cooperation.

Since environmental education is more effective through recreational and didactic activities, we have created environmental fairs that include exhibitions, cleaning working days, painting contests and artistic recycling in different communities. These initiatives are realized in conjunction with the local municipalities and with the organizations AMSCLAE and Mas Vale Limpio.
