The project aims to improve the missing or low level of environmental awareness of children and youth to mitigate the future challenges and impacts of the changing natural environment. Too many current negative phenomena on natural environment and climate have deep roots in low awarenss, bad attitude and careless consumption of natural resoruces. The needed changes do not start with political declarations and signatures but with the changes practices of common people, inhabitants of the world. The project want to contribute to this change through innovative environmental education and training based in natural environment appreciation. The forest environment with innovative (competition and challenge – problem, solving methods) will have deep impact on attitude and awareness of kids. The project partners want to develop outdoor /school yard based educational, training and information facility in Miskolc suburban area serving both school chidlren and summer camp visitors and tourists. The facility should operate during the school year as outdoor classroom that focuses on innovative environmentla education. The center will be connected to the nearby natural areas with „learning trails“ and use the jointly developed new programmes and tools.
In Slovak side from the decayed suburban forest cottage of the Kosice municipal forest company we will establish an international enviro-education center for year-around activities of youth and children of Europe. The center should provide services for organisation of school based education and training courses, leisure time activities and summer camps. Part of the innovative approach is the particiaption of foresters and NGO activists (as invited trainers) in the learning lessons of school children. ML Košice as a long term FSC certificate holder considers activities of environmental education and forest pedagogy an important part of public relations work. City of Kosice through schools) supports the project as well.
