iEARN Suriname started working on three main objectives:
•    The structuring and legalization of iEARN Suriname into a legal entity.
•    Promoting iEARN and its ideas and values to teachers, students and others.
•    Preparations for participation in the 7th International iEARN Conference 2000 in Beijing, China.

Planet Project
From 15-18 November 2000 iEARN Suriname participated with students in the Planet Project, the largest poll ever held worldwide organized by the International organization called Against All Odds Productions. The technology, needed for this major event, was provided by 3COM. Two Suriname teams won technical grants along with 48 other top-pollsters around the world (including 21 iEARN members).

Priceless Medicines in Our Backyard
During the 7th iEARN Conference in Beijing, China in July 2000 the representatives of the countries who participated in the KVCO project, decided on initiative of the Suriname delegation to start working on a new project called  "Priceless Medicines in Our Backyard". Teachers and students from eight countries representing most continents proposed an international Internet-based collaboration project to raise awareness about medical plants hiding in forests and other habitats around the planet. At the 8th iEARN Conference in Cape Town, South Africa in this year, representatives of the participating countries presented their reports during a special workshop.
This project was completed in April 2002 and resulted in a presentation video and in a few more weeks a website.

Since January 2001 iEARN Suriname has made a number of presentations at several schools, and in April 2001 conducted two 2-day teachers’ workshops resulting in 7 official member schools and growing. iEARN Suriname will focus on integrating iEARN curriculum based projects into the Suriname education system.

Tap' Sey Mit' Foto Sey (South meets North)
This project included an interactive collaboration between students and teachers from the coastal area (Paramaribo) and from the interior (Brokopondo) of Suriname. Students, under guidance of their teachers, discussed environmental issues such as the ecological footprint that was left after a dam was build, and acres of virgin forest as well as more than 30 villages were lost in the reservoir. The students discussed the past, present and the future of the islands in the reservoir. Students and their teachers met for four days at the beautiful Tonka island situated at the Van Blommenstein reservoir. It is our intention to turn this project into an on-going activity.
Most projects in Suriname are currently being conducted as after-school (non-formal) activities, nevertheless this form of education has contributed to the enhancement of the students’ and teachers’ educational skills and has proven to be successful.
