About the project

The project The Heart of Nature Connects Us is the systematic upgrading of the projects Invitation to the Forest and Open Learning Environment. The project is conducted by the Forest Pedagogy Institute, co-funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and via LAG The Heart of Slovenia.

The main purpose of the project is to encourage schools and kindergartens to maximize the use of the local natural environment for educational purposes. By integrating kindergartens and schools into the network in the area of LAG The Heart of Slovenia and the wider Slovenian area, the project contributes significantly to the exchange of knowledge, best practices and the development of pedagogical approaches.

The target group of the project is primarily educators and teachers, who are encouraged to introduce new approaches to learning in kindergartens and schools; it is also aimed at the children who will be workshop participants, at the expert public, which will be indirectly involved in the project, and at the rest of the public.
All activities and results of the project will be published on this web page and on the web pages of the Forest Pedagogy Institute and LAG The Heart of Slovenia.
