GEOCAMP - SUPPORTING GEOLOGY TEACHING TOWARDS ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP is a project is funded by the EEA and Norway Grants scheme. The project is a partnership between Technical University of Liberec and Ralsko Geopark in the Czech Republic, and Keilir Academy and GeoCamp in Iceland.
The two-year project will bring new innovative teaching programmes and methods in the field of the sciences and geology. Above all, we will integrate an interdisciplinary approach and methods of locally-based teaching into the educational framework, thus promoting active citizenship and environmental responsibility.
We respond to the very current challenge of equipping future educators not only with specific knowledge of biology and geology, but also with the ability to explain current phenomena such as climate change or drought in their entire environmental context. Only in this way can the teachers prepare their pupils for the challenges of the future and support their competence to take personal responsibility and act in the interests of environmental protection.
First project meeting in Liberec in September 2021
Project partners met for the first time in September in a meeting hosted by the Czech partners, Technical University of Liberec and Ralsko Geopark.
