Model project “Pupils experience nature in Europe’s protected areas”
As part of the model project “Pupils experience nature in Europe’s protected areas”, in the early summer of the school year 2007/2008 EUROPARC is offering ten interested and adventurous school classes the opportunity to take part in a 5-day end-of-school trip to the fascinating nature of Europe’s protected areas. During their stay in the national parks the school children will be able to live and experience nature and gain an insight into the objectives and the philosophy of a protected area. The aim is to sensitise their awareness and spur their enthusiasm for nature and the environment. For this model project we have selected altogether ten trans-border or trans-state national parks. The classes will be accompanied on the spot by national park experts.
Each class will receive a grant of 500 €, funded by the Environment Fund of the Bavarian Ministry of the Environment, Public Health and Consumer Protection.
Target group: secondary and general schools, business schools
Nationalpark Berchtes-gaden (D): Nature and action
Naturpark Weißbach (A): Biotope network and living space networking
Nationalpark Bayerischer Wald (D): Jungle and wilderness in Bavaria
Nationalpark Sumava (CZ): A wild team
You will find more details of the project under Background Information..
Detailed information on the model project, individual programmes as well as application forms will be sent out to the schools at the beginning of the school year 2007/2008 together with a project flyer and also be published on this site, the internet website of the Bavarian Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs as well as in the teachers’ newsletter.
