My Green Mongolia has created a MediaKit as a printed and a flipable booklet that provides parties interested in environmental education and communication an overview of Mongolian media and materials that MGM is sharing on this website. A PDF version of the booklet is also available. The booklet can be used by all its members and partners to promote the use of these materials and a further extension of the MGM network. The useful publication will also be distributed online and during events through QR-coded handouts as shown to the right.
For example, together with MET-DPAM, the GIZ SPACES project has produced
Co-funded by the European Union, the Forestry component of the STREAM project produced two animated videos on sustainable forest management best practices (Forest Fire Prevention and Forest Thinning), which are based on the same characters as the radio drama series under the My Green Mongolia campaign. In addition, the comics of the Forest Thinning and Forest Fire Prevention are now available. The Forestry component of the STREAM project aims to improve capacity for sustainable landscape management of forest resources and conservation of biodiversity in target soums.
MET and the GIZ SPACES project have launched a smartphone app called “Baigali,” which means nature in Mongolian, to provide information about 3,000 rare and endangered species of wild fauna and flora in Mongolia. Smartphone users can download the app for free and add information and photos about rare and endangered animals and plants to the app. Foreign and domestic tourists often retrieve environmental information, the app and website representing Mongolian biodiversity can be an important marketing tool in the tourism industry a well as an environmental education for the public in general.
The NGO People Centered Conservation (PCC) has created short, partly animated video clips to foster specific aspects of community-based environmental learning, e.g. on the Green Development Policy of Mongolia, or on a fictional Chinggis Khan complaining about the environmental damages to his homeland. Under the Women’s Land Tenure Security (WOLTS) project in pastoral communities, PCC has focused a blog series on topics such as herder families being split between countryside and town or hope for Mongolia’s herding traditions.
The UNDP ADAPT project has released a video clip called “Climate Change in Our Area” for children as a target group. At the same time, the project has also produced a manual and a comic book on climate change to increase the understanding of the complex issue among young Mongolians.
The Hanns Seidel Foundation has started an youth initiative on environmental law in cooperation with the Environmental Education Center. Touring the Center’s learning stations, officers of the Ecological Police informed about environmental crimes and what citzens can do to report these. Short video clips using an podcast style with animations present related topics such as poaching, logging, ecosystem services or wildfire prevention, which are then also uploaded to the organization’s Facebook page.
The Mongolian Environmental Civil Council (MECC) in collaboration with Hans Seidel Foundation (HSF) have developed a series of short video clips in which experts discuss and raise awareness on the importance of water, nature conservation, and what can we do about climate change. The Ecological Police is another organization that presents a lot of videos, posters, comics and other media and materials on environmental law, wildlife and biodiversity conservation on their Facebook page, incl. the campaign “Everyone is a Ranger“.
The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) has produced a number of video lessons for protected area rangers so they learn about topics such as SMART patrolling mobile application usage and how to develop patrol planning, what is an environmental crime, or poaching.
An informative video on waste management for kids and eco clubs has been created by the Freshwater Center.
