This internet-platform forestpedagogics.eu intends to develop as an europeanwide forum for information and communication about forest pedagogics. It wants to show important data, activities, materials and networks of foresters, forest pedagogs an other actors in forest-related education for sustainable development.
The 6th UNECE - Ministerial Conference “Environment for Europe” of the ministers of education and of the environment (Belgrade, Oct. 2007) underlines the importance of education on the environment and on sustainable development:
“Confirming our vision for the future, which is of a region that embraces common values of solidarity, equality and mutual respect between people, countries and generations, confirming the importance of the principle of sustainable management of natural resources, poverty eradication, and sustainable consumption and production, and enhances justice and civil rights, gender equality and the rights of children, reaffirming the importance of education for sustainable development as a tool for capacity-building that enables people to make this vision a reality.”
Forest pedagogics as described on this homepage is a mean contributing to this end.
