The Environmental Educational Holiday Festival

An award of $300,000 was made to the Boscobel Cool Runnings Youth Club to host the First Annual Environmental Education Holiday Festival at the Boscobel Heights Community Centre. The objective was to increase the community's awareness of environmental issues; enable the youth and community to network with their neighbours; and provide an opportunity for Boscobel community to display their environmental accomplishments. Activities included creation of a festival atmosphere to encourage attendance and participation, and the display of appropriate exhibits to depict aspects of environmental education.

This project will increase the knowledge and understanding of the youth and community of Boscobel; regarding the issues of the environment. Participating in community environmental projects will not only bring about a sense of pride but will also enable the participants to acquire sufficient knowledge to appreciate the issues of the natural environment; and to educate others.
