Why Green Learning Environments?
Playing and learning in forest and nature stimulates the imagination, creativity and entrepreneurship. Besides, nature is a great place to gain experience for the development of social and motor skills.
The positive impact of a green learning environment is even more significant when working with children with mental disabilities, learning disorders, attention disabilities (such as ADHD) and autism spectrum disorders. In an informal natural environment, these children learn better than in a classroom. A green learning environment therefore increases their chances in society meaningfully.
From this determination, BOS +, together with partners from Slovenia and England, execute the Green Learning Environments project.
The social-ecological Green Learning Environments project builds on a sustainable society. We lower the threshold and encourage teachers to take full advantage of the benefits that a green environment offers.
We invest in future generations, and specifically in the future of young people who fall more often by the wayside.
