“Leave No Trace champions” will use IMPRINT+ App
responsible enjoyment of our natural environment. The programme encourages people of all ages to take responsibility for their impact on the environment and other people, and introduces techniques that will help reduce those impacts. The Leave No Trace educational programme will be working with IMPRINT+ to create a new syllabus for trainers and tutors which will include educational resource’s IT applications and workshops for students in their teenage years and provide a fun and engaging way to learn about the Leave No Trace message and how they can leave a positive imprint on the environment. At the end, all students will receive an award called the “Leave No Trace champion.”
Maura Lyons, Manager of Leave No Trace Ireland welcomed the development of the new educational programme for students. “We have had a great response from the schools for the Leave No Trace programme and are delighted to further develop the programme to the audience. The new IT app coupled with the workshop puts the negative messaging into a very real context for pupils. The Leave No Trace message with the IMPRINT+ programme of caring for nature is a great opportunity for students to learn how they can put this message into practice in a positive way locally.”
