This two day training course is the finale of the three year European ‘Children in Permaculture’ project in which best practice has been shared across the continent from Finland, Italy, Scotland and Romania. In this process many resources have been created and shared including a survey of resources, case studies, films, and a book ‘Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share in Education: The Children in Permaculture Manual’.
Who is this course for?
People working with children aged 3-12 years, such as school, nursery and kindergarten teachers, as well as those working in non-formal settings such as after-school or out-of-school club leaders, parents (whether natural, foster, adoptive or grandparents) and others who are aware of the importance of their role in children’s education.
The aims are for participants to:
* Be inspired and empowered to take children outdoors for experiential learning.
* Find positive solutions to their interests and challenges working outdoors with children.
* Learn about a holistic, creative approach which involves children in the whole process as a partner in their learning.
*Envisage how the ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share can be integrated into an educational setting.
* See, hear and experience examples of good practice and inspirational stories
* Meet other like-minded people.
* Find out how permaculture can help them in their work with children.
