Forest as a learning environment in national curriculum

19/09/2018
by Liga Abizare

I am working on national and international level as an environmental educator and conducting various pedagogic programs for schools for more than 15 years involving forest as a learning environment. In 2019 I will organise 14th European Forest Pedagogics Conference in Latvia and one of the main topics will be the following:

How can children benefit from learning in forest? What do You think?
Does it make sense to learn about wood products outside in the commercial forest or is it enough for city kids to visit a local park?
Should we encourage the integration of forest as a learning environment in national curriculum for kindergardens and primary schools?
What are the barriers for such practice in Your country?
