Combel is keen to take up the gauntlet of integrating education for sustainability, because we are convinced that education can bring about change and help us build the better world we all long for.
We are setting out on this path with this new editorial line which encourages children to connect with nature and enjoy it with all their senses, spending less time in front of screens and digital devices. The love for nature and a desire to conserve it will emerge from this experience, emotion and knowledge.
And the lucky child who has had the opportunity to experience an emotional bond with the natural world will be the young person committed to the natural and human environment.
We have been working on a powerful editorial offer which concentrates on books that promote environmental awareness. Amongst other aims, we want to motivate children to take part in healthy activities in the open air so that they can take pleasure from their environment and learn to protect it in a fun and enjoyable way, following the principle that “you love what you know”. This is such an important goal for us that we have created a specific imprint within Combel, known as Ecosfera (Ecosphere), that includes books published by us which have this new ecological approach.
