Provide students with the general knowledge and basic concepts of environmental problems caused by phenomena such as climate change, deforestation, desertification, loss of marine and terrestrial biodiversity, and pollution.

Develop students’ understanding of concepts such as: the biosphere and the three spheres of the earth: lithosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere.

Provide students with a methodology to develop a field research by conducting a case study on environmental issues in their area (science project). This methodology will facilitate the acquisition of scientific research skills including:

  • Identification of environmental problems and formulation of a hypothesis

  • Collection, analysis, and interpretation information

  • Integration, representation and communication of scientific reports.

Allow students to reflect on the importance of natural resources in sustainable development, the preservation of biodiversity, and the implications of its deterioration.

Encourage active student participation in the recovery of environmentally damaged areas of the community so that they can take actions to protect, clean, and restore their local environment.

Also this project is based on the 15th goal of the United Nations sustainable development goals with the purpose of "promoting sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, combating desertification, stop and reverse the degradation of land and care the" loss of biological diversity", besides it covers the next goals: 3, 4, 6, 11, 13, 14, 15 y 17.
