According to the participants of the workshop, it is very important for the ecological educator to convey information to the listener accurately, without distortion and at the same time in an interesting and clear form. To do this, you need to use a variety of methods, focus on the audience, select the optimal forms of interaction with the younger generation, depending on the situation. Such workshops are very helpful in this work, because specialists have an opportunity to come together and share experiences and ideas.
