A good practice survey at schools in Germany
From 17 to 24 June 2009, thanks to cooperation with SEVO Špirala and support for the bilateral project "Internationale Agenda 21 Schule Germany and Zelená škola Slovensko" Ing. Zuzana Gallayová, PhD. participated in a good practice survey in the Internationale Agenda 21 Schule Germany (schools involved in the international project of local Agenda 21). The different types of schools visited in Berlin and Hamburg had a common involvement in addressing specific local problems, a significant representation of education for a sustainable life in the educational process, and the involvement of pupils/students (and their parents) in managing the school or organizing individual programs. The workshop on participatory environmental management at the Institute for the Future was devoted to the possibilities of transferring selected German experience to the conditions of Green Schools in Slovakia, given the new rules of this program from the school year 2009/2010.
The information, materials and experience gained will be used to teach environmental education and environmental education methods as well as the work of Green School consultants.
Trainee from the Russian Federation
In March 2007 visited us from Siberia Ljudmila Vasiljevna Kubrina, CSc. At the State Pedagogical University of Omsk, he teaches Education for the protection of the environment and therefore his professional placement was focused on the recognition of the functioning of environmental education in the Slovak Republic and the methods used by us in this topic. The common knowledge about the principles, methods and functioning of environmental education in Russia and Slovakia has been elaborated into several contributions to conferences and we are preparing a joint monograph. Ljudmila Vasijlevna 26.7. 2007 has ended and is scheduled to return in 2008 for 10 months. We would like to thank the rector of the Technical University in Zvolen, prof. Ing. Ing.
