UPDATED: MUT reaction to the hunting exhibition in schools
Update 18.03: The MUT is hereby issuing a clarification following the misinterpretations of its position regarding the hunting exhibition. The MUT does not approve or back the hunting exhibition in schools. It has always condemned any killing of living species and its promotion in schools. The union has always supported the work carried out to conserve nature and living species and urges educators to pursue with their teaching in schools to show the real effects of hunting.
The MUT believes that an exhibition on hunting in schools will never counteract all the positive work carried out by educators and schools towards a culture of conservation and respect of all living species. The union believes that since only education can bring about positive changes, schools cannot ignore controversial themes such as hunting. No static exhibition promoting hunting will influence students who are used to classroom discussions and practices promoting respect towards nature and its conservation. The MUT invites educators and schools to continue to showcase the real effects of hunting whilst promoting the message towards the conservation of nature and respect of all living species. The MUT believes that all organizations which work towards the conservation of nature should be given the same platform by the Education Ministry to promote their work in schools.
