Roots and Shoots Environmental Education Project
In order to spark the interest of more young people in wetlands and their importance to the environment, ConocoPhillips launched the Clear Water and Migrant Children Environmental Education Project. The Clear Water Project was developed in partnership with the international youth environmental education organization Roots and Shoots, established by famed primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall. Through educational activities such as drawing up wetland ecological maps, the Clear Water Project hopes to increase awareness of wetland eco-environments among young people.
Another environmental initiative, The Migrant Children Environmental Education Project, targets migrant children in Beijing who lack access to quality education. Through environmental education, students can learn about environmental protection and are encouraged to become good stewards of the planet. Since 2013, these programs have reached over 9,000 people.
