Slide6: 

Main aspects of environmental problems of Kaliningrad region Water management and pollution Air pollution Solid waste management Energy management Environmental education The “GUIDE” Environmental Group © 2002

Slide7: 

Water problems Water pollution (“Quality”) Main pollutant : sewage, wastewater Sources: - factories, plants - agriculture - household The “GUIDE” Environmental Group © 2002 Water management (“Quantity”) Water consumption is not controlled No stimulus for water saving Great overconsumption of water

Slide8: 

The “GUIDE” Environmental Group © 2002 Pollutants Small watercources Neman and Pregolya Baltic Sea Local pollution is threat for Baltic Sea! Link between pollution of local rivers and Baltic Sea pollution

Slide9: 

Water problems Water pollution (“Quality”) Main pollutant : sewage, wastewater Sources: - factories, plants - agriculture - household The “GUIDE” Environmental Group © 2002 Water management (“Quantity”) Water consumption is not controlled No stimulus for water saving Great overconsumption of water lack of environmental culture and environmental education

Slide10: 

Program of environmental education combined with collecting information about environment of the region (The “GUIDE” together with ecological lab of CEBET) Cultivating of careful attitude to the nature and water resources; Improvement of people’s level of environmental education; Teachers’ training to provide them possibility to carry out environmental education by themselves; Collecting information about natural water objects in Kaliningrad region (monitoring) The “GUIDE” Environmental Group © 2002 Main goals:

Slide11: 

water ecosystem: structure and functioning water quality: what is water quality and what does it depend on how does water quality affects the ecosystem evaluating of water quality (methods accessible for schoolchildren) wastewater treatment principles methods costs (conclusion: importance of water saving) practical steps for water cleaning – what can we do by ourselves (scheme: “I see” → “I like” → “I want to save” → “I learn” → “I act”) The “GUIDE” Environmental Group © 2002 Topics of the studies: Program of environmental education combined with collecting information about environment of the region (The “GUIDE” together with ecological lab of CEBET)

Slide12: 

The “GUIDE” Environmental Group © 2002 In the lab On the river (outdoor) Theoretical bases of water ecosystem’s structure and functioning Building of food networks and ecosystem modeling Studying aquarium materials (water ecosystem imitations) Working with previously collected material Trips to water objects (on EcoBus) Obtaining samples and materials Comparing theoretical knowledge with a practical situation Evaluating the water quality Main activities Program of environmental education combined with collecting information about environment of the region (The “GUIDE” together with ecological lab of CEBET)

Slide13: 

The “GUIDE” Environmental Group © 2002 Data: collecting of and working with Trips to water objects Collecting water characteristics: Biological Indicator organisms Biodiversity Bacteria number BOD Physical Depth and width Current speed Turbidity Temperature Chemical Oxygen contents Nitrogen and phosphorus contents pH Data combining and analyzing (together with children and teachers) Water quality evaluating Making decision about necessity of action taking Recording to database Applying on the map of the region Providing data for partner organizations
