How can pupils' curiosity and interest in the landscape be aroused?
The Council of Europe Landscape Convention provides that its parties undertake to promote school courses addressing, in the relevant subject areas, the values attached to landscape and the issues raised by its protection, management and planning.
This pedagogical booklet, Landscape education activities for primary schools, aims to arouse the curiosity and interest of pupils in landscape by inviting them to think about what they mean by “landscape” and to consider it with its environmental, social, cultural and economic dimensions, both in space and time.
The activities can lead pupils to imagine what their role might be, as individuals and members of society, in order to become actively involved with landscape. These activities can be carried out within the framework of formal and non-formal education.
