About the project - Edu game competition – new approach of environmental education

 

Building ecological awareness among society became one of the most important goal for the whole mankind nowadays. Education based on green energy, protecting natural environment and reducing pollution should be a pillar of education from primary school. Visible ecological recommendations pointed out in Lisboa Strategy, continued in Strategy Europe 2020 will be developed more intensive in next decades. The question is: are we aware enough to stop running destroying life style? What about work balance and green priorities? The second important problem, which projects touches is: young children and teenagers life style. The reports shows that obesity started to be the XX century disease – visible not only in United States of America but also in Europe.

 

Project proposal joins those two important global problems and presents new approach on green education connected with promoting healthy style of living. The main project’s goal is creating the map of beautiful, natural places worth to visit to convince especially young people to start spending their free time in mountains, getting better knowledge about surrounding nature and running healthy style of life. Project’s idea is also connected with educational workshops at primary schools in both countries – Slovak Republic and Poland as well as competition.

 

Project combines three important, interesting for society – especially young part – aspects: points out beautiful worth to see natural places, which are described and created in framework of game, mobilize them to be more active and reach all points from map and also educate.
