Learning about forests
What we do
We help teachers and kids learn about nature, in nature, and for nature.
Our vision is that more children learn in the outdoors, in their natural surroundings, through direct observation and hands-on experience. Therefore, we support teachers in learning about nature in nature.
How we do it
Monthly newsletter with inspiration from schools
Help schools to make their school ground greener by setting up pocket-sized school forests.
What´s the plan?
In our new project we´re developing a NEW NATURE EDUCATION TEXTBOOK, which will be based on several key principles:
- Learning about nature, in nature, and for nature (place-based approach)
- Climate education as an essential element
- Inquiry-based learning
- Big ideas of science
The aim is to not only enhance the KNOWLEDGE about nature, but also to enable the feeling of AWE and RESPECT to the planet.
Does it feel like we should connect?
