Here is what people have said about Robert Palmer’s Learning Resources:
“I am very pleased that such an initiative has been taken to educate the future generations at an early age.”Jacqueline Aloisi de Larderel, Director United Nations Environment Programme
“The concept is very exciting. It has imagination and above all sounds as though it will provide the teacher and student with encouragement and empowerment to be creative in their approach to teaching and learning. One of the greatest enemies of teaching and learning is the constraints which discourage the participants from moving across disciplines along knowledge pathways. In this programme, progress towards knowledge is not measured as a competitive achievement but rather as an empowering process, with outcomes which benefit teacher and student.”Margaret Moore, National Coordinator World Wide Fund For Nature
“The view of the Board was that the program is by far and away the most comprehensive and advanced program we have ever seen.”Robin Crawley, Executive Director, Banksia Environmental Foundation.
“The material is very impressive and I can understand its attractiveness to teachers. The materials speak strongly to practising teachers working under pressure.”Warren Brewer, International Programs Consultant Curriculum Corporation
“During my extensive travels throughout the world I have neither discovered nor observed any initiative that is as extensive, highly integrated, or as thoroughly planned and developed …”Professor Donald Huisingh, Lund University, Co-Chair of the Education Group, United Nations Environment Programme
“I am very excited with the opportunity to work with Global Eco-Learning in overseas locations such as Pakistan. The philosophies of this Department and those of Global Eco-Learning match up to a large degree and are both about developing positive environmental awareness and action.”David Lean, Community Education Officer Department of Natural Resources and Environment.
” I would like to offer my endorsement for this wonderful program.”Ike Naqui OAM, JP,Save the Children Fund
” Your presentation at the HABITAT Congress on Sustainable Development and the display of education materials generated a lot of comment and discussion. There is no doubt that environmental education will play a major role in the development of the HABITAT region and we are delighted to have The Education Professionals as a partner in this exciting project – which hopefully will become a role model for schools and communities in Victoria, in Australia, and throughout the World.
The simple explanation of a sustainable society often quoted, is one that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. This is a simple and accurate statement but to achieve the goal of ecological sustainability we must give our children a strong and sustaining education in all aspects of the environment – and the HABIT Trust believes that The Education Professionals have the programs to do this.”Ross Mellor JPHabitat Trust
