ECCA has been designed based on the human resource base of Nepali society. It consists of few experts, a larger number of college level youths, an even greater number of school going children, and then the community at large.

The ECCA methodology involves the following five interfaces:  

  • The expert-youth interface (Counsellor Training Camp, CTC)
  • The youth-to-youth interface (Urban youths, who get trained from experts or those who are graduates on Environment Science, train rural local youths)
  • The youth - children interface (ECCA Camp)
  • The child-to-child interface (Children trained during the ECCA camp conduct activities for other students (through nature club) in the same school or in neighboring schools)
  • The children - community interface (Follow-up Programme)
