Havana, Nov 8 (RHC) Teachers from schools in Spain, associated with UNESCO, visited the University of Medical Sciences in the city of Santa Clara, in central Cuba, on Monday, to create a chair in environmental education.


Dr. Luisa Márquez, national coordinator for Spain in this UNESCO activity, highlighted the organization's expectations in terms of helping to found the chair "Environmental Education for Sustainable Development as a Pillar for Health and Human Wellbeing" at this university.


The group toured the faculties of Medicine and Nursing, the Information Center, and the Anatoly Loytra Anatomical Museum.


Spaniard Marquez stressed to the press that it is very important to develop environmental protection and health defense, which helps human welfare.


"These chairs are very necessary because as members of UNESCO we are involved in these projects that contribute to creating new values in people, related to good work and the development of global life," she said.


She indicated that for 22 years her organization has counted on the cooperation of Cuba in many plans that worked the schools of Spain with those of the Caribbean nation in infant and high school education.


"We have known in Cuba the love of the teachers, how they are committed to the education of human beings, and the eagerness they manifest in creating a more educational and functional world in which it does not matter how and where one is born, but how people interrelate," she stressed.


For her part, Mara Jesús Enguidanos, Galicia's coordinator of UNESCO's partner institutions, pointed out that the main potential of this professorship lies in achieving the best way of caring for people.


"With the materialization of this faculty, a very important leap forward is achieved due to the recognized and respected projection of UNESCO in the defense of the environment and people's health", she underlined. (Source: Prensa Latina).
