Informed by the principle of investing in youth to act as positive agents of change, the program is committed to engaging and informing young pupils about their responsibility to protect and conserve the environment. This would require a change of attitudes, values and ethics towards the environment making them environmental stewards in their schools and communities. Furthermore the program encourages and promotes self-reliance and civic responsibility towards a positive and productive citizenry. Additionally, the program seeks to allow pupils to enjoy and have fun as they explore their environment through various community service endeavors and projects.
