About project

Project "Our landscape. Our home. Our school" is based on exchanging ideas and methodology of outdoor teaching.

For some years our school teachers have organized different outdoor activities as a part of formal and informal educational process. These efforts to use outdoor learning methods haven't been constant and haven't been summarized and the system of using these activities and methods in curricular and extracurricular activities has not been created yet. This project could help to summarize and create methodological descriptions and recommendations how, where and when to use outdoor teaching methods for different European schools. Project partners would organize workshops, meetings, seminars, try to use outdoor methods in educational process. 

The aim of the project is to integrate outdoor education and learning to education system as well as to share experiences in the European perspective.

Mix of practical modules, workshops will be used in project activities. Modern and old traditional teaching methods will be combined. Different outdoor activities will help to increase students’ learning motivation. Students will play outdoor games and sports, learn outdoor cooking, study plants growing in their surroundings, make arts from natural recourses, research landscape and nature. Students will know their surrounded landscape, cultural and historical heritage of their families and native town better.
