BOS is the coordinator of the DEN project funded by the European Union under the Erasmus+ KA2 and will be happy to cooperate with two other European incredible democratic schools in nature: Playa Escuela in Tenerife (Spain) and L’Albero della Tuscia in Farnese (Italy).
Responding to the need to offer innovative pedagogical experiences that could foster children’s environmental stewardship and active citizenship, the project DEN has the ambition to systematise and disseminate a new developing approach that bridges Nature Pedagogy with Democratic Education (Democratic Education in Nature). Having the partner schools a long-term experience in this domain, they will promote research on this pedagogical approach and its application in Europe, a series of workshops to exchange competences and train schools staff, and guidelines for new schools to put into practice democratic education in nature.
