Environmental education in children is, without a doubt, essential to transform society in relation to the impact of human activities on natural resources and form values in those generations that love, respect, value and conserve their environment responsibly and conscientiously.Therefore, an environmental education must be generated that provides all the necessary information and knowledge about the environment, since children will not love it if they do not know it and much less take care of it if they do not have ecological values in relation to the environment. nature that allows them to protect themselves and their own lives.

In this sense, environmental education in children must be taught and generated because it will allow them to develop their sensitivity to environmental problems, create environmental awareness, training habits for a change of attitude, participation in defense of the same and multiplication of their knowledge to others.Thus, parents, educators and society in general, together with the state, are primarily responsible for this environmental education being initiated from an early age and maintained forever for the good of humanity on the planet. That is, they must teach them to know and understand all the environmental reality so that they assume the consequences of their actions with their environmental environment. Hence, sowing love and respect for nature will lead them to act with balance and appreciation with their natural world.

Similarly, children should know that the state of the environment, human health will depend; since every environmental impact of man’s activities affects both the environment and the health and quality of life of all.In addition, today’s children are the future of tomorrow and that is why teaching them to care for and value the environment is to teach them to value their own life. Therefore, parents have to educate by example, since they are imitators and will follow the same acts.
