LLP Grundtvig Learning Partnership 2009-2011: EDUCATION IN MOUNTAINS-MOUNTAINS IN EDUCATION
Mountain are sensitive area in environment (influencing the geographical lands around); in many countries they represent also a problem of “heritage” but a defavourised area too. Mountains ecosystems are influenced by inhabitants, seasonal people (workers) and “visitors”. Project aims: – help institutions to develop educational tools for people in mountains communities; find how to use mountain specificity as learning resource (raising people interest for education, using non-formal tools) – share experiences in order to offer further training for people who can influence mountain area (authorities, multiplicators – including tourism Clubs). This will help people in disadvantaged area to better use their resources, new technologies etc., preventing also seasonal people and “visitors” to jeopardise the specific mountain nature and culture. It will also explore new possibilities to educate people with difficulties in formal education system. The partners collated their good practices obtaining general guidelines in introducing mountain issues (protected area, Local Agenda 21, working with rural communities in non-formal ways) in the educational process, with a functional role outside partnership. The findings and materials will be diseminated through relevant workshops, written and multimedia materials and virtual space (ITC).
