Envirotech Education recognises the importance of the Amazon rainforest to the world. Thus, we have been offering exclusive free of charge classes to students. "We are one, we are reaching out to our international students. The highest percentage of our students are Brazilians and they will return home, hopefully, to make a difference overall and to act on what they have learned about the Amazon forest before it becomes the Amazon dessert", affirms Shelly Bengiat, director and founder of Envirotech Education.
Yeah, we know it. Oceans are acidifying because of our carbon dioxide emissions and this has contributed to the Amazon rainforest being destroyed rapidly! There was a 278% increase in deforestation from July last year to July this year, followed by criminal fires in October, an explosion out of control and hundreds of species becoming extinct daily around the world! If we continue to consume plastic the way we do, there will be more plastic than marine life in the oceans by 2050 – that’s just 30 years. As Australia's vehicle emissions rise, so does the deforestation rates.
Our final semester is coming to a close in a few weeks, so it is ideal to stay up to date with your assessments so you don’t encounter a shock at the beginning of the year.

Children need nature to properly evolve not only in terms of enhancing creativity but also for improving motor skills or just to have fun. Okay, we know that while playing outdoors in the natural world children can evolve in their imagination, their capacity to explore, they can find a sense of adventure and learning. But the benefits of this relationship goes deeper: being constantly in nature is key to children’s emotional health as well. This is well explained by American journalist Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder, a US bestseller book.
