Learning with the Forests in Norway

The programme aims to increase the knowledge of forests and all its values with products and activities, and deepen the understanding among the youth.
The programme will stimulate activities that will help students reach a higher degree of environmental maturity, irrespective of age, stage and previous experiences.

Programme Philosophy

The programme rests on three fundamental ideas.

  • All educational activities should be adapted to the local needs of teachers and their students and be suitable for the local curriculum.
  • The programme will reflect all the functions forests fulfill for people; cultural, ecological, economical and social. Multiple-use of forests is a reality all over the world. Understanding the balance between those uses is crucial when studying how humans interact with forests.
  • Forests, forestry, forest products, and recycling are knit together in an everlasting loop.
  • Forests will play an important role in a sustainable society supplying recyclable materials and products based on renewable raw materials.
