INITIATIVES FOR FUTURE COOPERATION PROJECTS

Establishment of a Thematic Network on "Alternative Education through Outdoor Activities"

Summary of the Thematic Network. The main aim of this Thematic Network is to define and develop the European dimension of an alternative education through outdoor activities. At the beginning of the third millennium Europe is heading towards the network society characterised by the network of production, the differentiation of consumption, the de-centering of power and the individualisation of experience.

Creation of a European Module on "Environmental Education through Outdoor Activities". Summary of the project: The main objectives are to: analyse the environmental impact of human behaviour in different European regions; identify positive and negative behaviours in different countries; define best practice in forming positive attitudes toward the environment through outdoor activities; design a set of methods to be used, mostly by teachers, to encourage positive attitudes and responsible behaviours through outdoor activities. The partners will present the experience of their own country. The general and specific aspect will be identified. The best practice will be defined and through comparison of different approaches a new module will be designed. A textbook is proposed to be written and a web site will be made accessible. The module is envisaged to be implemented particularly into those degrees preparing teachers. Contact hmanne01@bucks.ac.uk

Creation of a European Module on "Comparative Practices on Women Involvement in Outdoor Activities" Summary of the project: The main objectives are to: analyse the influence of outdoor activities on women well-being; analyse the degree in which women from different regions of Europe are involved in outdoor activities; identify factors that encourage participation and factors that are discouraging women from participating in outdoor activities; define best practices in involving women in outdoor activities; design a set of methods that could be used in order to encourage and facilitate women involvement in outdoor activities. Through studying different approaches, the common and specific aspects will be identified. The best practices will be defined and through comparison of different approaches the content of a new module will be designed. A textbook and a web site will be also made available. The module is envisaged to be implemented particularly into those degrees preparing teachers. Contact kpolis01@bcuc.ac.uk
