Eco School project goals are to improve the environmental and ecological education in Mongolian public schools. This is being accomplished through a seven step process that includes the establishment of an Eco-School Committee that will oversee curriculum implementation and project creation, conducting an assessment of the environmental situation in selected schools, developing a plan for environmental action, creating a school and environment specific curriculum to be taught in the classes, informing the public about the actions, writing an Eco-Code that states what the school is trying to achieve and lastly monitoring and evaluation.
The MNEC conducted training for teachers on use of books for teachers which teachers began to use during the school’s civic education hours.
