The Sustainability and Outdoor Education (SEE) is transnational cooperation project funded by the European Commission aiming to increase outdoor sports participation and enhance the protection of natural landscapes through education on responsible outdoor behaviour. This is achieved through collaboration between outdoor sports professionals and conservation organisations across Europe.
It aims to enhance the protection of natural landscapes through education in and through sport with special focus on responsible outdoor behaviour and skills development for outdoor sports leaders, trainers, guides, or instructors. The SEE Project will also help to promote voluntary activities in sport, together with social inclusion, equal opportunities and awareness of the importance of health-enhancing physical activity all in a frame of sustainable development and in line with the new Green Deal for Europe.
A new opportunity to connect with the project
We are currently entering a new phase of the project and there is a great opportunity to connect with the SEE project if your organisation provides training for leaders, guides or instructors in outdoor sports to help us test a toolkit that promotes sustainability and environmental education.
Testing and evaluating the toolkit and the methods developped for environmental education
Using the methodology developed as a result of WP 2 the objectives are to:
- Test the practical usability of the methodology and the tools developed.
- Get feed-back from the users on the educational toolkit and to reflect on wishes and points of view of trainers, instructors, outdoor professionals, and participants.
- Create a series of case studies across Europe that demonstrate how environmental education can be included in the curricula.
Those case studies will provide a range and variety of different education Sustainability and Environmental Education in Outdoor Sports systems including different sports from a range of environments, different participants involving a diversity of age ranges short term intensive courses and longer-term regular but less intense courses, case studies from at least 6 countries and ensuring the cross-sectional approach.
- Providing added value by developing pedagogical approaches to enhance the outcomes of outdoor sport programmes.
- Bring users of the educational toolkit together with partners in their own countries and to collaborate effectively using online systems to exchange, reflect on their work and learn about other nations’ approaches after the use of the educational package. This work package will also develop opportunities for networking for the leaders of the case studies projects through online opportunities and it is hoped that they will also attend the International Learning Symposium at the end of the project.
