Youth centre Anjala and the City of Kouvola together offer annually a possibility for all 4th graders of Kouvola to take part in two environmental school days. Those days include adventures in nature, learning environmental responsibility and learning to understand nature’s influence and meaning to people. The days are run by youth centre’s instructors. Between the two days children do some exercises with their own teacher.
The environmental school days can be arranged either at the school or in the youth centre. The purpose of the days is to give ideas to carry out sustainable development in everyday life both for children and teachers alike. The days support the curriculum of basic education and the active methods give a little extra to a normal school day.
Besides environmental education, the days are planned to have some adventure methods to maintain interest in the subject.
