This Curriculum on Ecological Child Rights (ECR) in Mekong Development is based on actual experiences working with children and youth in the Mekong region. We hope this curriculum will help young leaders to navigate both the concept and the practice in promoting and protecting ecological child rights.

This curriculum is provided three learning chapters:

  • Tree Chapter: “Learning and thinking” – this chapter is for all participants and trainers to get to know each other, and be introduced to ECR.
  • Forest Chapter: “Understanding” – this chapter is to step forward and learn more about ECR and relevant development ideas, concepts, and real-world situations.
  • River Chapter: “Analyzing and taking action” – this chapter is for youths to learn how to be critical and part of the solution.

Our 3-Chapter workshop was produced based on our experiences in conducting training for Mekong youths for the past four years. We hope that this curriculum in your hands will be one of the tools to help you learn and develop your own learning process of ecological child rights (ECR). Feel free to adopt and adapt any concepts, ideas, and activities in this curriculum to create your own training courses that are suitable to the youths in your community.

We hope that this curriculum will be a helpful tool for young activists to lead their communities and specifically their fellow youth towards a better understanding of ECR.

Beyond the learning process and critical-thinking training, this ECR curriculum aims for all individual youth and all youth groups to feel inspired and encouraged to work towards the well-being of all the people in their communities, regions, nations, and of our Mother Earth.

Please feel free to use this guidebook in your languages and share them to your friends, colleagues and communities and your family! We looking forward to hearing your stories and  feedback of using this guidebook!
