HOW DO WE WORK?

The main methods will be through practical training, cooperative work, various activities and discussions. The content is thematic and interdisciplinary. Based on ”learning by doing” combined with “reflection upon action”. Through experiencing by heart, hand and head and outdoor activities we learn how to improve personal and social development, develop creativity, motivation and curiosity.

Positive atmosphere, exchange and fun is a part of the process during the week. The course will take place mainly outdoors close to nature, in the rural as well as the urban landscape, included field trips and visit of local schools.
