This booklet and its accompanying activity sheets are designed to help teachers with students aged 10-14 foster student environmental citizenship by engaging in the annual bird count and participating in citizen science.

The first two sections of the booklet present the key concepts of environmental citizenship and citizen science. The third section provides suggested class activities in four parts:

1. Getting to know local birds

2. Birds under threat

3. Kids count

4. Activating environmental citizenship

Teachers with students aged 10-14 have the opportunity to foster environmental citizenship in the students. Environmental citizenship is both about increasing awareness of environmental problems and raising ability to contribute to bettering environmental conditions. Environmental citizenship is crucial for achieving environmental sustainability and requires effective citizen engagement and civic participation. Students as existing and future citizens can adopt environmental attitudes and behaviors, make green choices, increase civic participation, and to be aware of and apply their environmental rights and duties.
