Nurturing Environmental Awareness

BUTTERFLY EFFECT

Our experiential early-age education program that nurtures environmental awareness through a butterfly conservatory. Our first and foremost goal here is to impart Education – Education about the complexity of the butterfly ecosystem as a means to providing a palpable sense of the interdependence of the Earth’s biosphere. This way, we hope to sensitize children to the importance of climate change and its remedies.

Shereen developed and refined the “Adopt-a-Butterfly”  program since 2017. The goal to nurture the metamorphosis of a butterfly before releasing them in nature, resulting in an analogous evolution of the learner’s own perspective about the interconnectedness and interdependence of nature.

Her leadership is characterized by a hands-on approach and a commitment to fostering a deep connection with nature. Through her guidance, participants will not only gain knowledge but will be inspired to become proactive guardians of their environment.

Together with a team of visionaries like Zain Mustafa, and experts in entomology, horticulture, and educational design, Butterfly Effect is set to transform learning environments into hubs of creativity and ecological harmony. The project beckons partnerships across sectors to nurture conservatories nationwide, fostering a symbiosis between education and environmental stewardship.
