˝The School Network in Protected Areas-Guidebook for Protected Areas and Schools˝-regional educational program in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia.

Within the project "Protected Areas for Nature and People˝, WWF Adria and Park Dinarides recently developed a Guidebook: ˝The School Network in Protected Areas-Guidebook for Protected Areas and Schools˝. The Guidebook is created for Protected Areas managers who want to work together with local teachers to develop educational programs or improve existing ones, and for schools that are interested in conducting their school curricula in the amazing environments of Protected Areas. In the chapters Learning about nature through play and Educational Activities and Critical Thinking is explained how to develop educational activities and in Annex 1 - Learning about nature through play - Description of activities are provided detailed explanations of examples of activities.

School Networks aims to create long-term and efficient partnerships between local schools and a Protected Area that is bound by the common goal of preserving local natural and cultural heritage in a way that contributes to the wellbeing of the local community.

The Guidebook is available in English.

Nature based education program for students with intellectual disabilities

Within CEETO project a special education program ˝The Life of a Tree˝ for students with intellectual disabilities was developed. With this education program, students are offered recreational and experiential learning about natural values in nature itself which gives them an opportunity to learn to observe, watch, listen, feel and move. The program was developed in joint cooperation by WWF Adria, Public Institution Maksimir and the Secondary School-Centre for education and training Zagreb.

Publications are currently available in the Croatian language.
