The Erasmus + "Forest Ed" project, which will start next December and will last 16 months, stems from the need for a change towards a sustainable development model, in which all of us as a society, have an important role through our actions and in which forests are essential as they are natural capital, necessary for the conservation of biodiversity and to provide ecosystem goods and services essential for well-being
Model Forests are test spaces where society, forests and local ecological knowledge converge, therefore the project identifies Model Forests as strategic areas for researching good environmental education practices.
The project proposes a series of actions based on the exchange of knowledge, cooperation in areas of common interest and the collective development of innovation capacity to empower educators, youth workers, educational leaders and their support staff.
Specifically, the partners will have to present their experience in the field of environmental education, exchange knowledge and seek opportunities for common development.
The partner of the project are:
- Provence Model Forest
- River Mirna Basin Model Forest
- Montagne Fiorentine Model Forest
- Fondazione Cesefor
- ASPEA - Associazione portoghese per l'educazione ambientale
- Fondo di Sviluppo Regionale della Regione della Macedonia Occidentale
