Title: The cycle of nature
If we know a lot about nature, we tend to be more prepared to do something for her. The promotional action “The cycle of nature” was launched by the environmental counseling service of Lower Austria to promote understanding of environmental topics in an exciting way. A three-hour workshop and subsequent consultation motivates children to work for the environment; the closing celebration provides additional motivation. The project seeks to integrate environmental topics in elementary education with a focus on ecological interdependencies.
