Education and cooperation key to sustainable development

Education and cooperation key to sustainable development

The results of an Erasmus+ project that involve two of the Model Forests of our Network

At the end of 2022 Istria Model Forest has finalized the Erasmus+ project "Education and cooperation key to sustainable development". The project sees the partnership of the Provence Model Forest and two Polish entities: Forest school and Forestry department Maskulinskie.

Following the spirit of the Erasmus+ programme, founded by the European Commission, several training meetings were organized between the partner countries, allowing participants to visit best practices and exchange knowledge and experience on different topics related to the project.

One of the main outputs of the project was a brochure with a long list of activities and laboratories useful for education about the Principles of Sustainability. 

The list is well organized, with activities divided for each target: workshops on nature and forestry education for the youngest children, workshops for primary school children, activities for secondary school students and adults. Each of these activities has a dedicated sheet with all the information needed to play it and also adapt it to different contexts.

Here is a video from the Festival of Forests and Forest Fruits held in November 2022 on the territory of the Istria Model Forest. A great opportunity to put lessons learnt within the project into practice!
