The main goal of the project was to enhance the quality of early years environmental education, to develop children’s interest in connection to nature and to achieve high-quality learning outcomes that support primary core curriculum and lifelong learning skills.
Teaching in nature is an excellent opportunity to develop a set of children’s skills and competencies necessary for achieving better learning competencies and then for the wellbeing of individuals and a more sustainable future of communities.
Education in natures is often unappreciated, and it’s potential is ignored in national curricula at primary school levels. Many educators suffer from a lack of dedicated materials and examples of engaging activities for such children.
The project was dedicated to teachers from rural areas and small towns to develop their skills and to enable them to access the most current knowledge, teaching practices and resources in the subject. The project delivered the following intellectual outputs: materials for pre- and primary schools, a mobile app and a video tutorial.
All the intellectual project outputs are available for teachers and educators not only on the partners’ website but also on the Spring Alive national websites.
