Flag: Finland on Facebook 3.1 Happy 20th Eco-Schools anniversary Finland! Flag: Finland on Facebook 3.1

Finland celebrates 20th anniversary of the Eco-Schools programme!

20 years ago, in May 1999, the first three green flags were raised in Helsinki, Finland. During the first year, the program started as a pilot in Eastern Helsinki, where 4 schools and 2 kindergartens joined it - half of them getting a green flag after the first year

In 2019, around 300 schools and kindergartens are involved in the programme in Finland.
Among these is also still one of the original participants, kindergarten Päiväkoti Neulanen, that has been on the Eco-Schools journey for the whole 20 years.

Hob’s Adventure - Hands-on Biodiversity.
A learning(from nature)-by-doing project.

Wonder how to educate children (and teachers) about natural environment harnessing existing technology?

"Hob’s Adventure - Hands-on Biodiversity" involves Estonia, Iceland, Latvia and Slovenia to create a network of educational experts and teachers that can generate new methods and ideas for integrating hands-on and digital learning into lessons. The goal is use the materials to direct children to learn skills that improve their academic achievements, increase their interest in nature and the environment and teach them social skills and digital competences relevant to their age.

The project will introduce children to the following topics through the overarching theme of the biodiversity of potted plants and outdoor environments: global citizenship, reasonable consumption of goods, diversity in nature, the needs of plants and animals, health and welfare. Learn how they are doing that and get inspired for your projects!
