Education Pack for Secondary Schools - Teacher's Book and Student's
Book were developed by the United Nations Environment Programme
(UNEP) OzonAction Programme under the Multilateral Fund for the
Implemention of the Montreal Protocol. They form an integral part
of the global Ozzy Ozone campaign and it is a follow-up activity
to the OzonAction Education Pack for Primary schools, which were
developed in 2006.
This project is a joint activity between UNEP, the United Nations
Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and the
World Health Organisation (WHO). and the United Nations Children's
book, designed for teachers of secondary schools, represents the
start of a success story. It is an example of what happens if everyone
tries to do something positive to help solve an environmental problem
- in this case, the depletion of the Earth's protective ozone layer.
The Teacher's book which is like a mini-Montreal Protocol guide
book catered for young people aged between 13-16 years, aims to
raise awareness and encourage the active participation of young
people in the debate on ozone depletion, it's potential effects
on them, the place in which they live and the planet. It also offers
children a chance to design their own projects for taking action.
The pack offers students a chance to:
- develop their understanding of ozone issues
- introduce the links between ozone depleting chemicals and climate
- express what they believe needs to be done locally
- desgin and create their own projects to protect the ozone layer
in their school and community
- present ideas at their own mini-Montreal Protocol meetings
- implement their own version of the Montreal Protocol
- contribute to UNEP's Ozzy Ozone website: www.ozzyozone.org where
their ideas will be available for National Ozone Units (NOUs)
to see and use.
Below are links to the individual document files that make up
the Education Pack. The files are saved in two formats:
- "Viewing": lower resolution and generally
smaller sized PDF files suitable for viewing on screen.
- "Printing": high-resolution PDF files that
are suitable for printing, including the guide marks for the
printer. Some of the files are large and may require substantial
time to download.
Student's book is an integral part of the OzonAction Education Pack
for Secondary Schools. It concentrates on the same issues as the
Teacher's Book: ozone layer depletion, protection and the health
risks of strong ultraviolet radiation.
Teacher's will set the scene for the students. They are journalists
who have to complete their article with a deadline or lose their
jobs. Before they write their article, they will need the results
of all their missions from their notebooks.
Remind the students that they have to produce a report. Introduce
them to the writing frame that follows and explain that their article
may help them summarise key facts. Tell them it needs to be completed
before the debate takes place. They will need to present their report,
ideas and actions at the mini-Montreal Protocol debate.
To carry out the work in the Students Book, students will need a
pen, paper and a copy of the Students book.
The Pack is part of its global communication strategy for promoting
compliance with national obligations under that treaty, and it is
linked to UNEPs Tunza Children and Youth Programme and the
International Decade for Education for Sustainable Development.
UNEP encourages organisations to translate
and disseminate the Pack into regional and national languages.
UNEP can provide advice and guidance in this respect, as well as
the desktop publishing files. To understand how the Pack is being
used, UNEP would appreciate learning about any interests to translate
the Pack into other languages (please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org).
