Live and Learn

Live & Learn works with communities throughout Asia and the Pacific to design, implement and learn from community-based development projects. The projects are specific to each community and cover a number of thematic program areas. These include:

  • Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)
  • sustainable use of biodiversity
  • environmental governance
  • natural resource-based conflict management and peace building
  • understanding climate change
  • sustainable energy options
  • community-based waste reduction and management
  • human rights
  • community disaster prevention and preparedness.

Live & Learn funds its programs with support from the public, governments, the corporate sector and international development agencies.

Live & Learn aims to:

  • encourage individual and community attitudes, values and actions that are ethical and sustainable
  • encourage networks and partnerships between schools, children, youth, teachers, governments, chiefs, elders, parents, the media and non-governmental organisations (NGOs)
  • share knowledge, skills, learning experiences and resources with others for the benefit of the physical and human environment
  • promote the integration of the concepts of human rights, environmentalism, humanitarianism, culture, gender equality and peace in all projects and programs
  • promote action-based, effective and creative learning models and teaching methodologies.
