This innovative and comprehensive program engages children inside and outside the classroom, instilling a greater understanding of and compassion for nature and wildlife. The speakers will also discuss AoC's lessons on staying healthy and one health approach, which address the possibility of disease transmission between people and mountain gorillas living side-by-side at the national park.

Additionally, the presenters will focus on sharing information about AoC's community conservation initiatives and local partners, including their Save The Forests Briquette Initiative to combat charcoal production and deforestation in the mountain gorilla habitat, as well as their Sports for Gorillas Activities, which encourage healthy living habits and unite communities in safeguarding Rwanda's parks and wildlife.
