The mine safety course will become a mandatory addition to the school curriculum. This was reported by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.

The mine safety workshop is being developed by the Ministry of Education and Culture and UNICEF. An online course on teaching mine safety for children of all ages will be available for teachers.

Teachers can already use the manual with detailed plans, as well as lesson presentations adapted for primary and secondary schools.

For children, experts in cooperation with psychologists have developed interactive materials that explain the rules of safe behavior in the territories , which may be contaminated by mines.

In particular, cartoons and videos featuring Patron the dog and sappers, as well as games, have been prepared for schoolchildren.

The materials can be downloaded on the website “Everything” on mine safety” and in the library of useful materials “Spilnoteka”.

The MES emphasizes that approximately 30% of the territory of Ukraine is potentially dangerous due to explosive objects.

According to data of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine, as of July 30, 2023, 100 children have already been affected by mines and other explosive objects.
