In the period from October 31 to November 2, 2022, we held the first three-day workshop in Mavrovo with the team representing the Network for experiential learning and implementation of the first annual environmental and climate change education program. This network will work on developing new educational methods and materials that will in an experiential way bring the environment and climate change closer to children. At the same time, the network will define the ways in which it will function and how it will act in the future. For this purpose, we worked on our team spirit as well as the strategic documents that will guide us through the next steps.
The network team is represented by employees from all partner organizations: Educational Center for Nature Conservation, Negrevo; Natural Science Museum; Narodna Tehnika – Skopje; Hydrobiological Institute, Ohrid; Botanical Garden, PMF; and NP Galichica. A valuable partner in the process are SmartAP – Laboratory for Social Innovations Skopje.
The project “Establishment of a network for experiential learning and implementation of the first annual environmental and climate change education program” is implemented by the UNICEF and MES with financial support provided by Sweden.
